- When Feminists Turn "Mean Girls" — A series of tweets from just a few of the more obsessive beasts who have trolled my Twitter stream since last August, blathering baseless allegations that I "abuse women."
Each of them are frequently encouraged and retweeted by @angryblacklady, @honeybadgerLA, @vdaze, @semishark, @dvnix, and many others actively engaged in harassing me on Twitter, even having contests to see who can drive down my follower count the fastest. Seriously. Their goal has been to cover-up their own malfeasance and contrived scandals meant to mask it and they have literally shat on thousands of twitter relationships to do it. Fortunately, as the chirpstory shows, they are now revealing themselves to be incredibly manipulative and vicious, further discrediting their phony narratives. And people are finally starting to get it and push back.
And then this to explain the horror that you just read:
Online Trolls, Toxic Disinhibition, and How We can Change the Internet — while these people have their motivations to do what they do, the ugliness with which they do it has roots in disturbing psychological phenomena. This article will open your eyes to a lot of what you see on Twitter each day—much of it directed at me.
