The Unsafety Net: How Social Media Turned Against Women - The Atlantic
The Unsafety Net: How Social Media Turned Against Women - The Atlantic is unsettling, but required reading. I really think you should click on it now, and yes, I am sure that things are that bad online, and no, I wasn't fully aware, even though I've been on the web for about 20 years.
It is not only a social network problem (even though the networked setting provides a good Petri dish, to borrow a term from the Atlantic article), neither is it simply a case of John Gabriel's Greater Internet Fuckward theory , nor a 'regrettable' by-product of freedom of speech as I have seen it formulated; this is a sign that something is quite wrong in society, an old problem now brought to light.
I hope we can fix it.
