Weekly Link Roundup! McKinney, Twitter trolls, and more

Here’s some of what we collected this week:

  • VOX on some of the fraught history behind swimming pools, McKinney, and police assault of young black children.
  • The problem of plastic waste in the ocean, and what one fashion company is trying to do to change it.
  • The Mary Sue sits down with the inimitable Kate Beaton. 
  • Twitter  has added a new anti-troll feature. 
  • Women in STEM fields respond to Tim Hunt with a hashtag funnier than his asinine comments deserved: #distractinglysexy.
