The Empowering Internet Safety Guide for Women


Have you ever been harassed in the street? Received a crass message on a dating app? Had a coworker make a comment about your appearance that just didn’t sit right?
You’re not alone.

  1. This is great.

    I am truly obliged to this blog for learning about this manual.

    The manual is a masterpiece. An absolute tour de force of feminism. A paean to anti-patriarchy.

    I got a lot of enjoyment from the author(s) twisting themselves into pretzels as they attempt to ignore the nature of men while simultaneously teaching how to defend oneself against it.

    Men are going to mess with women who expect to be treated like women while acting in a way men perceive as unwoman-like.

    Not ALL men! But a LOT of men.

    So the more the manual teaches assertiveness and a whole slew of other tactics, the more the women implementing the overall strategy of this manual will be attacked. I know. Because I hang out with the men doing the attacking. I've even learned how to do it. Just by osmosis. But I don't attack women online.

    I do much worse.

    The way it is: some men are attacking to establish certain cultural guidelines. "Get back in the kitchen!" is one of the tamer expressions.

    But I tend to just ignore a lot of the feminist women. I have no desire to even get a whiff of their feminism. And I have no hankering to engage them in battle. So, I exclude them.

    Mind you, I will read an article by a woman if it's well written.

    BUT: when some women are regularly trash talking their empowerment, there should be no surprise that "online harassment is more prevalent than ever." And no surprise that the very prevalence gives the impression that "[w]omen are often targeted simply because they are women."
