I remember when i was a manager at publishing company in London and the fullfillment guys downstairs had boobs calendars on the walls in their production office and they sent me an email where a woman was being fucked by a bottle of champagne. I complained and nothing was done. When I grew up my dad told me i could do anything. When I got to the age of working I realized that it would be a struggle because some men, many men treated me like shit simply because I was female. When I was younger it really upset me. I was young and as a young women I wanted to be liked. It’s very upsetting to be treated such a way because you are female. Of course I also later met some amazing men, bosses, male workers who I loved and loved and was one of the “boys.” Those men I love. To the other men – let’s not let them get away with it because there’s laws about racism and now people are taking notice of homophobia and still women struggle. The one thing I don’t get is why young boys/men on forums are using rape language? I see it all the time. Why do they talk this way? I thought that being a young guy you’d want to fight other men but where does rape of women come in to it? Where do they get this stuff from? Fuck free speech. Stop “rape” on social media.
My 19 year old niece thinks that because I am a feminist I hate men. No, I hate misogynists. I love men. I hate bigots. Why does she think this way? because the male media has told her that feminists are men hating and lesbians and men hating lesbians. Bottom line is – Twitter and Facebook – if it was men getting these threats, if it was men who were treated as second class citizens and sex objects for centuries, if it was men who only really got legal rights in the 20th century, then all these rape threats and death threats would be stopped. There is no free speech. If there was – well go and try and threaten the president, the USA and use bombs and kill in your text and see how far you get. Social media should never be above the law.
