Twitter and sexism

I’m sorry. But I love men. But you can’t tell me as a woman that it’s okay to put up with rape threats online. You have no fucking clue what it is like to be a woman. We can’t go out at alone at night. I was attacked last year and the year before in the real world – followed to my home – and I’m in my 40’s. Stop saying that being threatened online is okay. You have no fucking clue what it is like to be a woman. No clue. It is not acceptable to be threatened with rape and death on social media.

Sexism on Social Media

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.

Twitter rape threats to women

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.

“10 Most Expensive Mistakes Filmmakers Make: No Social Media Plan and No PR Strategy.”

No Social Media?
“Sales agents and distributors I meet in Cannes and Berlin are incresingly impressed by a filmmaker that can come to them with a social media following. The reason is really simple: If you have people interested in your work, it makes it easier for the distributor to sell them your film.”

No PR?
“Once a filmmaker understands that the fun part of the filmmaking process is the actual shoot, the marketing and selling of the film kicks in.”

London Photographers Association social media program in USAToday.com

The London Photographers Association social media initiatives received a special mention in USAToday.com, Journalism.co.uk and GetaNewsJob.com.

“Interesting initiative for members of the London Photographic Association (LPA): existing members who bring in new paying recruits to the organisation will receive promotion by the LPA through social networks.

This will include: Member’s bio and link to your LPA portfolio posted on LinkedIn LPA discussion page; One week of Twitter updates with links to your LPA folio; One week of Facebook posts with images from portfolio and a link to your LPA portfolio page. Could this kind of promotion package be adopted by other member organisations or indeed members clubs on news sites or is there a danger in allowing a third-party to part-manage your professional profile on social networks?” Get a News Job.
