Have You Seen This Instagram Account? It Makes Me TOTALLY Embarrassed To Be A Man.

We all know not everyone acts like this. But when I showed this Instagram account to some of my girl friends they all say "yep, that happens all the time." Guys, it's not OK to treat women this way.Heads up: some NSFW language below.

Imagine you're a woman. You're single and ready to mingle.

You sign up for your digital dating service of choice. You create a winning profile complete with a photo, your likes and dislikes, accomplishments, and a description of the partner you'd like to date.


Good news! A potential date messages you!

But you're busy right now, so you plan on responding later. When you look at your phone less than an hour later, he's become hostile.

Hey Creepy Creeperson, you can laugh out loud after every sentence all you want, but anyone who gets angry that quickly probably isn't a super fun date. Bye!

No big loss, though, because a guy with a nice jawline has asked you to chat!

But after that first guy told you to jump off a bridge, you're not really in the mood to chat. So you're honest with him.

He's even more hostile than the first guy! And he doesn't even laugh out loud after every message to give the illusion of kindness. Sheesh.

The next day you wake up and find a charmer like this in your inbox.

But after looking at his profile, you realize he's not really your type. Rather than waste his time, you're honest with him.

Well this is confusing. Is he interested or is he not interested? And you're not interested in dating the kind of person who thinks fat is an insult anyway.

When, like, 90% of your online dating interactions involve suddenly hostile suitors, it's no wonder that your reaction to dating may look a little like this:

Because so many times someone messages you, and you think maybe he's the one.

But despite an adorable profile picture, when he opens his mouth, it's terrifying.

So, dudes. Life can be hard for all of us.

But it's never OK to be demeaning to someone who rejects your advances. You don't want to be like this:

Because no one wants to date that guy. And when every guy who sends a nice message can turn hostile at the flip of a switch, it's no wonder women are wary and defensive when guys with even the best of intentions reach out.

Just remember: Don't ever write this to anyone.

Or this.

Because you might be featured on #ByeFelipe, an Instagram account where women call out men who are hostile and bad at taking rejection.

So be nice, or get shamed. And if you're ever thinking about sending a message like the ones above, well...

The first day of school can be both exciting and scary at the same time — especially if it's your first day ever, as was the case for a nervous four-year-old in Wisconsin. But with a little help from a kind bus driver, he was able to get over his fear.

Axel was "super excited" waiting for the bus in Augusta with his mom, Amy Johnson, until it came time to actually get on.

"He was all smiles when he saw me around the corner and I started to slow down and that's when you could see his face start to change," his bus driver, Isabel "Izzy" Lane, told WEAU.

The scared boy wouldn't get on the bus without help from his mom, so she picked him up and carried him aboard, trying to give him a pep talk.

"He started to cling to me and I told him, 'Buddy, you got this and will have so much fun!'" Johnson told Fox 7.

For those of us who are not on the spectrum, it can be hard to perceive the world through the senses of someone with autism.

"You could think of a person with autism as having an imbalanced set of senses," Stephen Shore, assistant professor in the School of Education at Adelphi University, told Web MD.

"Some senses may be turned up too high and some turned down too low. As a result, the data that comes in tends to be distorted, and it's very hard to perceive a person's environment accurately," Shore continued.

A new Harriet Tubman statue sculpted by Emmy and Academy award-winner Wesley Wofford has been revealed, and its symbolism is moving to say the least.

Harriet Tubman was the best known "conductor" on the Underground Railroad, a network of safe houses that helped thousands of enslaved black Americans make their way to freedom in the north in the early-to-mid 1800s. Tubman herself escaped slavery in 1849, then kept returning to the Underground Railroad, risking her life to help lead others to freedom. She worked as a spy for the Union Army during the Civil War, and after the war dedicated her life to helping formerly enslaved people try to escape poverty.

On an old episode of "The Oprah Winfrey Show" in July 1992, Oprah put her audience through a social experiment that puts racism in a new light. Despite being nearly two decades old, it's as relevant today as ever.

She split the audience members into two groups based on their eye color. Those with brown eyes were given preferential treatment by getting to cut the line and given refreshments while they waited to be seated. Those with blue eyes were made to put on a green collar and wait in a crowd for two hours.

Staff were instructed to be extra polite to brown-eyed people and to discriminate against blue-eyed people. Her guest for that day's show was diversity expert Jane Elliott, who helped set up the experiment and played along, explaining that brown-eyed people were smarter than blue-eyed people.

Watch the video to see how this experiment plays out.
