**After Misogynist Instagram Account Exposed, President of Prestigious Art Fair Steps Down**
*Juan Carlos Lynch, who had just been nominated as president of arteBA in Argentina, posted numerous sexist, racist jokes on his Instagram.*
Lynch’s social media account was filled with images of breasts and political jokes. One cleavage shot was accompanied by the caption, “looking at breasts make men live longer.” Upon Donald Trump’s political victory, Lynch shared that “a billionaire would be entering public housing formerly occupied by a black family.” “Discussing with a woman,” reads another post, “is like being attacked by a bear. The best thing to do is act dead and hope she gets bored and leaves.” Or: “Every guy thinks that every girl’s dream is to find the perfect guy. Bullshit! Every girl’s dream is to eat without getting fat.” A T-shirt worn by a big person read: “I survived anorexia.” And on and on.
Facebook has upheld Donald Trump’s suspension but will revisit the decision in six months. (Ridiculous for many reasons including that more coordination for January 6th happened on Facebook than anywhere else...including Parler.)
Curious if you guys are even on Facebook anymore. I see lots of messages from people who have deleted it or just don’t use it. Are there any features that you miss which we should incorporate here on Locals?
A big welcome to all the new folks who joined the community today! (And yes I’ll be signing those cards and mailing them out to you ASAP!)
While we do plenty of politics and culture around here it’s also a lot of pet and food pics. And since we have so many new members today it seems like a good time to start a pet pic thread. Here’s Clyde...now everyone introduce your furry friends!
