If you're a tumblr-er, you've probably seen this post on your dash recently -- it's about a tampon ad full of gross transphobia and girl-vs-girl shitty nonsense.

I wrote Libra a letter of complaint, as did many other people.

And then the Murdoch press, shining turds that they are, report on the story like this -- calling the trans woman in the ad a drag queen, using scare-quotes around the word transphobic, and even invoking that timeless and vomitous phrase "political correctness gone crazy".

I cannot adequately describe the levels of repulsed loathing I feel for all things News Ltd. They are actively vile.

In other news, today is my first day back after the holiday break, at my job where I have to closely read Murdoch papers every single day of the year. It's like garbage collecting, only grimier. BLEH.

Isn't moral anarchy kind of the point?
