Here’s a video of men (not the authors of the comments) reading to a woman’s face some of the on-line comments the other men have directed at those women. (And, to be honest, if you’ve read the kind of comments that men direct at women on-line, these really aren’t the worst.) The women “earned” those comments simply by existing on-line while being female. It’s like driving while black; if you do it, you deserve whatever you get.
More and more, my female friends and I keep looking at each other and asking, “Why do they hate us so much for just existing?” It’s a good question, but I don’t have an answer.
