Being visible and female on the Internet is a known risk: write about any topic and you’re bound to face verbal and visual harassment from the comments section to your personal email to many other areas of your life.

Yesterday the staff at Jezebel, a female-centric blog that’s part of Gawker Media, went public with their company’s lack of action on explicit content in the comments that employees are supposed to moderate. The Morning AMp’s Brian Babylon and Molly Adams spoke with the site’s news editor Erin Gloria Ryan about what the higher-ups have done.

Mariam Sobh discusses how social media has changed how we think about modesty

morningamp:

The Morning AMp’s Lead Modesty Analyst Mariam Sobh joined Brian Babylon and Molly Adams to report on how selfies and sharing of social media have changed norms about how we think and talk about modesty.

Mariam also discussed her opinions on people “over sharing” on social media. She went on to say:

"People share too much about their relationships - I feel like it can have a negative effect. Its always like ‘oh my gosh, my significant other is so amazing, oh thank you for bringing this to me today. I can’t believe you brought me flowers.’ Its just so in-depth. And then the next week, ‘oh we’re getting separated.’ Maybe you did a little too much or maybe you’re over compensating for something else in your life and you want everyone else to think its amazing."

Three Israeli teenagers who live on settlements in the West Bank were kidnapped last month and found dead on Monday. Wednesday morning, a Palestinian teenager was kidnapped and found dead a few hours later, in what is likely an act of vigilante “justice.” The AMp co-host, Molly Adams, feels Israeli PM Benjamin Netenyahu is talking out of both sides of his mouth, asking his citizens not to take the law into their own hands, while calling the unknown murderers of the Israeli teens “beasts” and “animals.” With the help of our listeners, we discussed the back and forth that war creates and how fear keeps authority in power.
