They both look freaking hot in a nerd way, but you only respect one of them.
In the midst of an ugly legal battle with the Department of Labor over the gender wage gap, Google updated its blog on Tuesday to assert its commitment to paying women and men at the company equally.

Active duty and retired members of the United States Marine Corps are being investigated for sharing nude photos of women—many of them fellow Marines—on a secret Facebook page. Some of these photographs were purportedly taken without the knowledge and consent of the subject.
According to Overwatch lore, D.va is a pro gamer who serves and inspires her country. In real life, D.va’s role is starting to mirror her in-game persona, as she becomes a symbol of hope for women in South Korea.
First, it beat Star Wars: Rogue One. Now, for the second weekend since its wide-release debut, Hidden Figures—the true story of three black female mathematicians at NASA—is number one at the box office. It’s raked in roughly $6o million so far, and counting.
Tencent, the Chinese tech behemoth, sparked outrage this week when a video from its year-end party leaked online. The video shows employees participating in an incredibly sexist office game.
In 2001, when I was about 14 years old, my male friends invented a game that went like this: one of them—and it was always the same one—would sneak behind me, slap me—and it was always me—on the ass and run away as I sputtered, angry and humiliated.
Earlier today, Razer, a very prominent gaming company, sent out a tweet. That was the company’s first mistake, but then it went and topped itself. Congratulations, Razer! It is a truly momentous day.
This evening I’m giving a talk to my daughter’s Girl Scouts troop about careers in technology. I’m going to tell them that women have done amazing things in tech. I’m going to tell them that they too can do anything they set their minds to in this arena. But I will be lying to them.
A recent campaign argues that a ban should be placed on the development of sex robots. While well-intentioned, it’s a shortsighted idea that fails to recognize the ways in which these technologies will help us explore new ideas of inclusivity, legality, and social change.
In honor of July 15, known extremely occasionally as the “Day Without Sports” (because no professional sports air on television), NYC-based PR firm MSL Group circulated a list on behalf of Netflix of streamable rom coms and sports movies that both men and women will enjoy.

“Congratulations on your white penis — because if you have one of those, you probably have a very different experience of the internet,” explained Jon Oliver on last night’s Last Week Tonight. And in this 15-minute video, he explains why that’s the case.
When you walk out of the Älmhult train station, there’s not much to see. To the west is a string of filthy box cars on the railroad, and to the east, a small park with no people. TripAdvisor will tell you that there is only one thing to do in the tiny Swedish village: Go to IKEA.
Tim Hunt, a knighted British biochemist who won the Nobel Prize in 2001, has resigned from his position as honorary professor with the University College London Faculty of Life Sciences following sexist comments he made in regards to women in science. “Let me tell you about my trouble with girls,” he began, during a…
Greetings, mail minions! Let's just get right into it, because today I'm tackling the tough questions and big topics! Race! The Ant-Man trailer! 3) Star Wars minutia! And Spider-Woman's boobs! (As opposed to her butt, thank goodness.) It's something for everybody!
It is an incredible day for science when a tiny robot manages to land on a comet. It is an irritating day for science when that gets overshadowed by a poor wardrobe choice.
