I got an idea while I was working yesterday, and I think it might be a good one, but I want some GT input, as you are collectively wise. Also, the most smartest at Internetting.

Anyway, it's called Women Reading the Comments. I want to share pictures of women reading the comments section of pretty much any website. Originally, I thought I'd need to include screengrabs of the comments in question, but I think it's even more fabulous without context. They'd also have to be pretty candid shots, hamming it up or pulling faces would take away from the ultimate message of the thing: this is what real people look like when they read the sexist, racist, homophobic, transphobic, body-snarking, +1, U Mad? inanity that is spread like bad shag carpet from one corner of the web to the other.

If this sounds like something you'd like to participate in, know that I am very, very, very respectful of whatever level of internet privacy you like to provide for yourself. I won't put names to faces, even in file names, if you want to provide a pic.
