Highlights

Rape Culture Frontpage

In August 2016, the site dediated its entire front page to jokes about rape and sexual assault, particularly satarizing rape culture within the comedy community. In a comment to Jezebel,[2] Newell wrote:

"Our female comedian friends were feeling pretty frustrated with a lot of the dialogue surrounding these events, specifically some of the comments coming from men. We put out a call to writers for pitches on the topics of sexual assault and related issues and we received an overwhelming response.

"So we came up with the idea to use as many of those ideas as possible and do a full homepage takeover."
