“My dad’s an old-school biker dude who types with two fingers and has me fix the settings on his cellphone every time I see him — I still don’t think he quite understands what all this has been about. He just knows now to hang up when someone calls and screams “YOUR DAUGHTER’S A WHORE” into the receiver.”

5 things I learned as the Internet’s Most Hated Person.

‘Minecraft’ creator Notch says selling Mojang to Microsoft was about keeping his sanity – Neowin:

“It’s about my sanity,” says Notch, whose statement on his sale of Minecraft points to ‘the internet exploding in hate’. In his statement, Notch questions if he ever truly connected with his ‘audience’ or if he has become a symbol with no connection to his own identity.

“The games that concern me are the games that will never get made— the ones women would make if they saw that anyone had their back.

“First, as Young points out, women’s harassment is more likely to be gender-based and that has specific, discriminatory harms rooted in our history. The study pointed out that the harassment targeted at men is not because they are men, as is clearly more frequently the case with women. It’s defining because a lot of harassment is an effort to put women, because they are women, back in their “place.”

Second, online comparisons like this decontextualize the problem of harassment, as though a connection to what happens offline is trivial or inconsequential.

Third, the binary frame camouflages the degree to which harassment of people, often men, is frequently aimed at people who defy rigid gender and sexuality rules. LGBT youth experience online bullying at three times the rate of their straight peers.

For girls and women, harassment is not just about “un-pleasantries.” It’s often about men asserting dominance, silencing, and frequently, scaring and punishing them.”

There’s No Comparing Male and Female Harassment Online.
