Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Disturbing Content - Nightmare-Generating

I watched a video of US "Patriots" beating up "Antifa" titled "Patriots Kicking the shit out of Antifa, enjoy!" It showed violent beatings accompanied by horrendous music. I also saw videos of kids getting injured while sliding down a rainy, slippery street. Definately NOT for kids!!! Horrible stuff!

Not that funny, too extreme

On 9gag there are people who converse and comment in a sensible way, but extreme sexism, mysogyny and racism is very common. Also people who tell you they will kill someone for having another opinion do happen and 9gag doesn't care. I find it shocking to read. Depressed people mostly seem to find great help though.

Great messages
Too much violence
Too much sex
