On June 21's edition of Last Week Tonight, host John Oliver talked about a subject near and dear to my heart: the harassment of women online.
"The Internet has become integral to modern life. But unfortunately it has also become a haven for harassment," said Oliver, referring specifically to the abuse women endure online daily.
"I'm talking about the kind of direct threats that can make people fear for their safety," Oliver continued. "And if you're thinking, 'well c'mon that doesn't seem like that big a problem', well, congratulations on your white penis. If you have one of those, you probably have a very different experience of the Internet."
The 17-minute segment talks extensively about the types of grotesque threats to women, revenge porn, victim blaming, the difficulties women face when trying to prosecute online harassers, and the actions companies are taking to crack down on this kind of abuse.
Watch the whole glorious clip below.
Fun fact: after I tweeted about this segment last night, I was immediately—and repeatedly—called a cunt by complete strangers.
What brave, brave souls.
