“I’m talking about the kind of direct threats that can make people fear for their safety. And if you’re thinking ‘Well, come on, that doesn’t seem like that big of a problem,’ well then, congratulations on your white penis, because if you have one of those, you probably have a very different experience of the internet.”

This was the quote that kicked off John Oliver’s latest in-depth segment, on the online harassment of women. He took on anonymous threats, revenge porn, and law enforcement’s ineffective response to both to this point. It’s a really good segment, worth watching if you’re a woman who can nod along at all his points, or a man who can take the opportunity to be quiet and listen for a little while. Also, Rob Huebel and Colin Hanks show up to mock old AOL commercials. And someone finally shines a light on John Oliver’s creepy spider fingers. It really has a bit of everything.
