Trending

It can often be hard to believe that, in the 21st century, misogyny can still be so rampant.

But one viral thread recently pointed out just how deeply ingrained and pervasive it truly is in our society.


It all started when Twitter user @sswyers tweeted about a snide comment her boss made after viewing the thumbnail of a woman's profile picture on LinkedIn.

You've been warned, ladies.

No attractive profile pictures that might make men all hot and bothered.
