SLATE'S PIECE ON THE RAPE GIFS FUCKING LINKED TO GT MEET-UPS. ATTENTION. BE AWARE.

Ugh. I mean, I understand why she included it in the article, but really? Did she have to link it?

ETA: I've tweeted her asking her to remove the link. I hope she responds. I ask that anyone that tweet her be respectful as they're representing our community.

EDIT: MadPiglet received a response to her email, Amanda is discussing the link situation with her editors as I type. Here's hoping they decide to help us out. Thanks to everyone who reached out about this.

FINAL EDIT (I HOPE): i am calm, but thanks received word from Amanda Hess that they will be removing the link. GOOD WORK, EVERYONE!

OK, FOR REAL, FINAL EDIT: I've emailed back and forth with Amanda and she's been exceedingly gracious about this, it sounds like she got right on the ball when we brought it to her attention. REMEMBER, TAKING THE LINK DOWN IS MORE THAN GAWKER MEDIA WOULD HAVE DONE. Slate and Amanda responded ethically and promptly and they have my gratitude.
