Monica Lewinsky’s self-described campaign to end cyber-bullying began with a small act of courage.

She joined Twitter.

The long-ago White House intern signed up for the hugely popular, but often vitriolic, medium on Monday just a short while before she gave a speech at aForbes summit in which she described herself as “Patient Zero” of the Internet shaming age.

"My name is Monica Lewinsky, although I’ve often been advised to change it."

According to a write-up on the magazine’s website, Lewinsky described the public humiliation she suffered during the endless coverage and investigations of her affair with President Bill Clinton that led to his impeachment more than 15 years ago. She talked about her “love” for Clinton at the time and reportedly teared up in recalling the shame of being, for a time, one of the most infamous young women in the world.

Lewinsky, now 41, said she was “the first person to have their reputation completely destroyed worldwide via the Internet.”

“There was no Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram back then. But there were gossip, news, and entertainment websites replete with comment sections and emails which could be forwarded. Of course, it was all done on the excruciatingly slow dial up. Yet around the world this story went. A viral phenomenon that, you could argue, was the first moment of truly ‘social media’.”

Lewinsky crept back into the public eye earlier this year with a piece in Vanity Fair in which she wrote about the Clinton affair and the difficulty she has had in finding a job. In the speech on Monday, she began by saying, “My name is Monica Lewinsky, although I’ve often been advised to change it.”

Now she wants to start “a cultural revolution” against the kind of treatment she endured that is even more prevalent in the era of social media.

“Having survived myself, what I want to do now is help other victims of the shame game survive, too. I want to put my suffering to good use and give purpose to my past.”

In joining Twitter, Lewinsky appears ready to play on the same field as the bullies she is trying to combat. Her introduction, however, was a bit halting.

If nothing else, Lewinsky has demonstrated that all these years later, she can still command an audience. Within three hours of her first tweet, she had more than 14,000 followers, and the count was growing by the minute.

It pisses me off to no end that decades after the bullshit she endured people still crack jokes at her expense. Fuck those people, good for her.

When someone shows me support or comforts me, sometimes I get deeply emotionally attached to that person. I can’t stop thinking of them, I always want to be in contact with them, I desperately want to please that person and have their approval, I ache when I don’t see them. I even get jealous and hurt if I see that person spending time with someone. In a completely non-romantic way, I love that person. My friend who also has BPD calls this “imprinting.”

Imprinting sets me up for disaster. I become clingy. I build up this grand illusion of how perfect this individual is because they’ve blessed me with their kindness.

And when that illusion is shattered by just the smallest disappointment—like not really maintaining contact with me or getting annoyed with something I do or say—I crash into a massive depression. I almost feel upset with that person, as many borderlines do, but instead I turn that into self-loathing. I panic that they will leave me, but at the same time I feel they are justified in doing so because I’m worthless. Then I distance myself as much as possible from that individual.

As you can imagine, many people are confused by this completely maladaptive behavior. Only after learning I had BPD did I even realize that “imprinting” isn’t normal. It’ll be the first thing I tackle in DBT.

Before you start ranting about the minimum wage being to low and want it to be $15.

This should be funny but it’s too true to laugh at. Raising the minimum wage will destroy low wage employment (AKA entry level jobs).

Okay no that is absolutely not true?!
By raising the minimum wage you ensure that people can actually, you know, BUY THINGS and SUPPORT THE ECONOMY?
Okay I am literally too tired of this horseshit. You know how much McDonalds would have to raise their prices in order to actually pay a REASONABLE minimum wage?
A nickle. And not even on ALL of their food items- just SOME of them.
You assholes trying to keep the poor from trying to improve their situation make me fucking sick. Do you even KNOW HOW FUCKING CAPITALISM WORKS?
YOU PAY PEOPLE PROFIT FOR THEIR WORK SO THEY CAN BUY MORE THINGS AND PAY OTHERS PROFIT FOR THEIR GOODS AND SERVICES AND ITS A GODDAMN CYCLE. YOU DONT KEEP PEOPLE BARELY PAID ENOUGH TO BE ABLE TO FEED OR CLOTHE OR HOUSE THEMSELVES BECAUSE THAT KILLS THE GODDAMN ECONOMY.
THE WORKING FORCE IS WHAT POWERS THE ECONOMY
NOT CORPORATE SHITFUCKS TRYING TO BRING US BACK TO 1800’S WORK CONDITIONS
THANK YOU AND GOOD FUCKING NIGHT.

Tumblr user artiestroke lays down the law

Also the touchscreen kiosks that McDonald’s Europe ordered back in 2011 shown in the picture were ordered to speed up taking orders so their paid employees could focus more on filling those orders, not as a method of replacing minimum wage workers
As a matter of fact, they projected back in 2011 that this would result in an INCREASE in jobs
So yeah dommypls and americas-liberty, learn economics.

And some fucking empathy for other people besides yourselves.  Fuck you for thinking that having to pay a little extra for a cheeseburger is more important than someone being able to live off their wages.

This is how toxic capitalism is. People think that cheap hamburgers are more important than human lives and well being. 
We live in a culture that commodifies FOOD, WATER, HOUSING, and HEALTH CARE, and that SCOFFS at the idea that everyone should be able to actually afford all of those things even if they are employed. 
We have a system where people think it is ABSURD to suggest that EVERYONE should be able to EAT. 

I also happen to know that service workers like these kinds of machines; they don’t have to interact in the same way with customers, don’t have to hear customers yell about how that’s not what they ordered (dude, it’s on a slip, it’s what you ordered and it was definitely not a misunderstanding with the employee since you didn’t talk to them).  And there’s definitely just as many (or more) employees at Wawa putting your food together at the lunch rush as there would be without the wonderful touch screen devices.  So quit trying to appeal to luddites and accept that you’re being a horrible person by claiming that people you rely on a for a service don’t deserve a reasonable living wage.

imagine stabbing someone with this knife.

it would instantly cauterize the would, so the person wouldn’t bleed, so it’s not very useful.
