The Way of the Internet

‘Tis a crying shame I didn’t see Danisius’ post at Bored Panda about Shea Glover’s “beautiful” video; it’s an interesting idea.

Unfortunately, the video was first shown to me by an associate in defense of street harassment.

Too bad about that; I’m pretty sure advocating for sexual harrassment was not what the filmmaker intended.

Then again, I could be wrong.
