We should be more careful with what we're sharing

Cartoonist Nathan Pyle, whose Strange Planet alien drawings you've definitely seen everywhere, was discovered to be anti-abortion today, which serves as a valuable reminder that you should know about the person whose content you're sharing.

Pyle shares his artwork on Instagram on an account called @NathanWPyleStrangePlanet, which boasts almost 2 million followers. But, he also has a personal Instagram account and Twitter, which reveals a lot more about where he stands on important issues, like a woman's right to choose. Twitter user @anarchopupgirl found a tweet that he posted back in 2017, in which he talked up the anti-abortion March for Life in a post about his former girlfriend. He shared a screenshot of a Facebook post that she had written, which thanked "the courageous mothers" who did not have abortions, and added, "When I think of the #MarchForLife, I first think of the life story of my girlfriend, Soojin. I am thankful she was given the gift of life."


When looking at Pyle's personal Instagram, though, it's clear that we shouldn't have been surprised that he has such conservative views. The first line in his bio is "I follow Jesus," which should clue you in about his religious leanings.

Though you may not have followed Pyle's account, you've no doubt seen his drawings re-posted by others on social media, and maybe even shared some yourself. Finding out about Pyle's problematic views serves as a needed warning to make sure the content that you're sharing was created by someone who views you as deserving of autonomy over your own body.

Lights off

Neutrogena's Light Therapy Acne Mask and Activator—the one that's inspired many-a-selfie across the interwebs—is being recalled for potential eye damage. "Our decision to recall this product is being made out of an abundance of caution," Neutrogena shared in a recall statement on its website, adding that the product is still safe when used once a day, as directed. While the brand does acknowledge the potential damage to the eyes, Neutrogena insists that this is "rare, generally mild, and transient."

Because Pennywise, of course

Warner Bros. Pictures just dropped the final trailer for It Chapter Two, and it's very bloody. Though it takes place decades after the events of the 2017 film, that doesn't mean that the "Losers" are free of Pennywise's horrors.

Was it worth it to see how you'd age?

If you've been on social media lately, you'll know that the latest craze is using an app called FaceApp to see what you'd look like as an old person. And, while the photos are pretty funny, they do come with the cost of your own privacy. FaceApp now has the access to names and photos of over 150 million people, according to Forbes, and it can pretty much do anything with this information.
