http://www.telegraph.co.uk/women/womens-life/10791712/Germaine-Greer-online-trolling-shows-men-now-even-less-tolerant-of-women.html

The link above outlines how social media has made a woman's lot even worse in this co called modern age.

Women who are not anonymous online are often subjected to horrific hostile trolling regarding their physical appearance,status and anything else considered not perfect about their lives.

Women online are also subject to death threats and all sorts of intimidation that for some reason men do not seem to experience online.Why is this?

Teenage girls are expected to resemble Miley Cyrus and Rhianna,if they don't have the perfect body or their face doesn't fit they can expect to be ridiculed online on social media.That must be a horrific thing to endure as a teenage girl when coping mechanisms aren't fully evolved anyway.

It is pressure,too much pressure.Why are women targeted online for their 'supposed' flaws,are women and teenage girls meant to be perfect now in their appearance and achievements?

You're now joining in the abuse? affraid 

Someone on another forum keeps hassling someone to tell them how "hideous" I am. Can you believe that someone would do that?  Shocked

I don't think the forum feud you are referring to (despite droning onto other people that referring to other forums isn't allowed  Rolling Eyes ) is applicable here.You are all equally hateful to each other so you cancel each other out.

I did want to discuss a genuine problem here Ragga...!

No you didn't - you just wanted to whine about being treated "badly" on forums again. You're as bad as those who you complain about.

I would like to know why someone would take someone's photo, alter it, and then mock the way they look in the altered photo. Can anyone explain the reasoning behind that?

I experienced worse misogyny than the person you are referring to.

What is the reasoning behind uploading animals in wigs to mock someone? Jealousy maybe because there is nothing wrong with the way I look  Razz 

It is all part of the same mentality I agree but there is a difference Ragga.There is history (that I don't know about) that prompted that altered photo you refer to. I had no history with those who abused me.

I don't want to whine at all,why would I. I've been dealt a good hand compared to my detractors. Razz 

I do think social media is being used by misogynists to abuse women as the article highlights,and men don't receive the same treatment.i would like to know why that is.

What about posting a pic of a woman and using the title "forum spastic" underneath it? Is that acceptable to you Fluffy?

You are determind to completely hijack this thread.

I don't know what that person did to prompt that action against them.What I know of that person's character they are extremely abusive themselves and would do the same thing to others.

No and I told one of the Admin.However again,that individual called someone else a sp*stic and so received the same treatment back.

However no I did not agree with it.But I don't believe any of this is is applicable because you are talking about a tiny group of people.

The article refers to abuse and intimidation on a national scale against women on social media where those women have not prompted any negative actions or done anything wrong to others but be women.

Seems that way, and it's a very serious subject. Look at what happened to the women who campaigned for Emily Bronte to be portrayed on stamps and the abuse and death threats they got. Tip of the iceberg.

No,they don't NATIONALLY or TYPICALLY that's the point.

If people go around threatening others and make disgusting comments regarding people's family members who have passed away I think they can expect a bit of online abuse.

Don't push it.

Don't push what? The fact that you're one of the worst hypocrites around?

Speaking of disgusting comments about people's family members who have passed away, how do you feel about someone calling a deceased person a paedophile?

Mary Beard is another example.All she did was appear on Question Time and be herself and because she is not considered commercially attractive she received a horrific amount of abusive and sexual tweets on social media.

I don't think Fluff is talking about someone retaliating against abuse they have received on a particular forum. The subject is the national abuse of women on the internet every time they put forward something to promote a women's subject for example, ie Emily Bronte.

No,she can't.

I have explained to her already that I don't approve of the way women in the particular feud she refers to were treated but those women were also abusive and disgusting to other people themselves.

It's not relevant to the OP.

They were not retaliating.

Fluffy is IMO a WUM and a fake.

Oh but you do approve of it, and you join in yourself. You're also abusive about men.

I quite agree. In her case luckily the campaign backfired, because there were enough people out there who appreciated her for her brain, not her looks. In the end, she won, hands down. Would there were more cases like that.

Thankyou Sassy  cheers  yes I am.

Although oftentimes women on social media receive abuse whether they are promoting women's issues or not.Often they get abuse just for being women.

Although oftentimes women on social media receive abuse whether they are promoting women's issues or not.Often they get abuse just for being women.

Or a man pretending to be a woman.  Razz

I have explained to her already that I don't approve of the way women in the particular feud she refers to were treated but those women were also abusive and disgusting to other people themselves.

It's not relevant to the OP.

Oh but you do approve of it, and you join in yourself. You're also abusive about men.

If you are referring to GIG, he was absolutely vile when I found my daughter dead. If you think I was going to stand for it you have another think coming.

Now, could you possibly get your head round talking about the subject in hand?

Mary Beard is another example.All she did was appear on Question Time and be herself and because she is not considered commercially attractive she received a horrific amount of abusive and sexual tweets on social media.

I quite agree.   In her case luckily the campaign backfired, because there were enough people out there who appreciated her for her brain, not her looks.   In the end, she won, hands down.   Would there were more cases like that.

But what does it say about the mentality of men who think it's ok to be abusive to women just because they are of a certain age or don't fit the stereotypical mould.

I think it's an unsettling disturbing mentality.I think social media allows people to be the misogynists they want to be in real life but can't be due to social norms.

I was not referring to GIG, I was referring to some of Fluffy's friends.

Re the subject matter, what do you think of someone who calls a woman a "retarded slag" or even "whorebunny"?

You have no interest in discussing the OP Ragga,what happened to your insistence that people must not discuss other forums??

You are being a complete hypocrite.

Now ain't that the truth. The number of online misogynists who are probably terrified of women in real life is beyond count. Life lesson, make sure you have a man who isn't one, in life or on line  ::D::

Not in the least, there are many woman who get a great deal of enjoyment out of being Barbie Dolls.   That is their decision.   There are many men who like to be adored because of their looks.   However, I wouldn't be interested in having an intellectual discussion with either of them.

I like a degree of intellect in my discussions that someone who thought that looks were the most important thing in life would not be able to provide.

You mean I get pissed off with idiots.   You are quite right.

I have to say - this issue is as serious as you want to make it.

It's the same for the women - no, teenage girls are not expected to look like Miley Cyrus - that's in some peoples heads.

Targets online for those who are not anonymous? And they have lessons at school and hopefully by their parents on how to stay safe online?

Well when i was at school we had lessons on how to stay safe crossing the road - i listened and here i am now.

You have added nothing valid or even accurate here.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-21159779

Actually try listening to Mary beard and what was said to her,the fact people deemed it acceptable too talk to a woman like that for no reason at all,and try coming back with an answer of substance.
