Facebook forcing Rape and Domestic Abuse Victims, along with Drag Queens to use Real Names with Policy

The drag community has been fighting with Facebook for weeks regarding the social network’s “real name” policy. 

Facebook has been cracking down on the names people are using on the site, forcing them to use the names that are on their government-issued ID cards or risk getting their profile suspended, in an effort to “keep our community safe.”

The irony, however, is that sometimes people use pseudonyms on the site in order to feel safe.

And that includes Oakland, California, resident Mike Woolson, a local drag queen and cartoonist, whose wife is an aspiring member of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence. The Sisters are an LGBT organization focused on community service and drag performances. The group has been around since the late 1970s.

HasBro and Playdoh Putting the “Toy” Back In “Sex Toys”

Is there anything worse than having your company’s Facebook page covered in photos of what appears to be dildos? There is, actually. It’s worse if those dildos are actually toys that your company sold to children for Christmas.

As Scooby-Doo would say, “Ruh-roh.”

To be fair, Hasbro—the toy and board game manufacturer that’s been in business for close to 100 years—can’t claim they never saw it coming. Back in November, parents started complaining that the Play-Doh “Cake Mountain” toy more than vaguely resembled a glass dildo. Hasbro didn’t take much notice, other than offering replacement parts to disgruntled parents.

Morons at Detroit Free Press Run Picture of the Wrong Harbaugh on Front Page – HELLO MCFLY!

In the midst of another sorrow-drowning night in the Motor City, someone at the Detroit Free Press plastered the wrong Harbaugh brother on the front page of the paper’s morning edition.

This is John Harbaugh, who is related to but not the same as Jim Harbaugh. You can tell by the Baltimore Ravens logo, and by the fact that they are two different people.

The photo plays up the ongoing Jim Harbaugh coaching drama. The San Francisco 49ers announced after Sunday’s win over the Arizona Cardinals that they would be mutually parting ways with the coach.

This move only deepened the prevailing belief that Harbaugh will take the University of Michigan up on its handsome head coaching offer.

North Korea Pus*ies Threaten to Blow Up White House

An outraged North Korea has threatened to attack US landmarks over The Interview – Sony Pictures Entertainment’s comedy film that stars James Franco and Seth Rogan as journalists instructed to assassinate North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un (played by Randall Park) after booking an interview with him. The government claims to have clear evidence that the US government engineered the controversial movie as a propaganda attack against North Korea.

North Korea’s furious state news agency, Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) published an enragedpost: “The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) has already launched the toughest counteraction. Nothing is more serious miscalculation than guessing that just a single movie production company is the target of this counteraction. Our target is all the citadels of the U.S. imperialists who earned the bitterest grudge of all Koreans.

Confirmed: US Cyber Attack Behind North Korean Internet Outage

Cyber terrorism is bad thing. In fact, according to the US government, it’s a major crime which is punishable by life in prison.

However, on the heels of Sony’s recent hacking and subsequent blaming of the North Korean government, the US has sanctioned its own cyber terror attack against North Korea, according to a credible source who contacted The Anti-Media. At the time of posting the article, North Korea hascompletely disappeared from the internet. The damage the US is hoping to do is not just intellectual, but is aimed at causing physical harm to the North Korean economy and by default its civilian population.

But it doesn’t stop there. According to our sources, the US is also planning on launching more cyber attacks against North Korea’s banking system which could start as early as tonight.

There’s more. Though not concrete, there is also talk of covert military actions against North Korean infrastructure which include: hospitals, military bases, and nuclear facilities in the very near future.

Clint Eastwood — That’s a Wrap … on 18 Year Marriage

According to docs filed in Monterey County Superior Court, the marriage of Clint and Dina ended Monday. The couple struck a property settlement and custody agreement, but details are thin.

As TMZ previously reported, Clint attempted to block Dina from getting spousal support … claiming money to which she was entitled was covered by their prenup. It’s unclear if the terms of the prenup were honored in the settlement, but typically there’s give and take in these divorce agreements.

Dina requested primary physical custody of their daughter, but she’s 18 now so the issue is moot.

The couple separated in June 2012 and Dina filed for divorce last December.

Pu*sies at Sony get pitched Secret Messaging Software after getting on their knees to Hackers

Many Sony Pictures employees probably wished their old emails would just disappear after a cyberattack exposed tens of thousands of messages.

Smartphone app developer Confide is using the hack to pitch big companies — in Hollywood and beyond — on technology designed to let people communicate without a trace.

The company’s year-old app, also called Confide, sends encrypted messages that automatically self-destruct like Snapchat images. Now the company is launching a new version for corporations and telling Hollywood it can keep their secrets from prying eyes.

Confide said it will take out an advertisement in Tuesday’s Los Angeles Times to offer Confide for Business, as the corporate version is called, for free in perpetuity to Sony and other movie studios, television networks and music labels. The ad also addresses celebrities whose personal photos from their Apple iCloud accounts were posted on the Internet a few months ago.

The ad’s timing is auspicious, coming after weeks of embarrassing revelations from Sony Pictures stemming from the attack, first publicized in late November, that revealed thousands of private emails and documents copied from Sony’s computer systems. Publicity around the cyber theft has underscored the vulnerability of email and created an opportunity for firms to pitch alternatives to traditional corporate communications.

FBI Confirms North Korea responsible for Sony Hacking

(Reuters) – The U.S. government on Friday blamed North Korea for a devastating cyberattack against Sony Pictures, calling it an unacceptable act of intimidation and vowing to impose “costs and consequences” on those responsible.

It was the first time the United States has directly accused another country of a cyberattack of this nature on American soil.

 

The “destructive nature” of the attack, which led the big Hollywood studio to pull a movie depicting North Korea’s leader amid threats, coupled with “its coercive nature,” set it apart from previous cyber intrusions, the FBI said.

“As a result of our investigation, and in close collaboration with other U.S. government departments and agencies, the FBI now has enough information to conclude that the North Korean government is responsible for these actions,” the FBI said in a statement.

“North Korea’s actions were intended to inflict significant harm on a U.S. business and suppress the right of American citizens toexpress themselves,” it said. “Such acts of intimidation fall outside the bounds of acceptable state behavior.”

The FBI said technical analysis of malware used in the Sony attack found links to malware that “North Korean actors” had developed and found a “significant overlap” with “other malicious cyber activity” previously linked to Pyongyang.
