Talking Publicly About Harassment Generates More Harassment

A few months ago, I posted a series of tweets about some of the most disturbing and vile sexual harassment I receive online.(Read my entire series of tweets here)Because the behaviors of online harassers are often so predictable, I feared that doing this would result in a flood of similar harassment, but I felt it was important to speak out about it precisely because men use tactics like this in an effort to silence and disempower women, and because I know that gendered online harassment of this sort is hardly unique to me.
