Today’s Facebook Update:

Last year, when she was just 16, New York City high school student Temitayo Fagbenle created a scorching radio piece on sexual cyberbullying that aired nationally and internationally via the WNYC program “Radio Rookies.” In it, she interviews and confronts one of her friends, who was arrested in the 8th grade for emailing a topless photograph of his then girlfriend that spread to hundreds of students.

Fagbenle has since hosted a town hall for teens on the topic, and launched a Facebook group and online community called “That Could Be Your Sister.” The idea is to create a community channel to collectively report online slut shaming in the same venue where it takes place; pictures of very young girls are posted and traded on Facebook groups with names like “Exposing Hoes.” – Ken
