Well this is distressing:
Copied from a friend about boredpanda.com:
"I want to talk to everyone about a website called BoredPanda, many of you share their "articles" that show you 10 cats who prove if they fits they sits or 10 best grilled cheese sandwiches, or whatever. Recently they posted one called 10 before and after photos of trans people or something to that effect. The photos featured in the article were not given to them, but hijacked from private forums on the internet. A close friend of mine gathered together her forces for good and got them to take it down but that's only part of the issue solved. BoredPanda put those people's lives and livelihood at risk to get more clicks without any thought to the risk they were putting those people in (in case you didn't know Trans people are randomly assaulted or threatened regularly just for existing). They didn't get permission from the human beings whose photos were used. Let that sink in. They are currently hiding behind ToS rules of other web sites so they can't be sued directly.
Here is what you should be doing about this;
1. Write to bored panda and demand that in the future they get a signed model release before using photos that may put someone at risk.
2. stop linking their articles
3. stop clicking on their articles.
4. share this sentiment or post in whatever way suits you best."
