How Should Feminists Respond to Misogynistic Trolling on the Internet?

Steph Guthrie, feminist advocate and community manager, speaks at TEDxToronto on September 26 about the real social seriousness of Internet trolling, and how feminists using the Internet should think about it in deciding how and whether to respond.

  • Tracheal

    TED is a platform for feminist gender bigots. There is no Men’s Human Rights Movement balance from this PC platform. Bigoted, reverse-sexist, female supremacists (feminists) are encouraged to troll everywhere in the lame stream media using niggardly misandrist nonsense but all we hear about is ‘misogyny’ on the internet.

      Translation: “Girls have cooties and I want them out of MY sandbox.”

      • Tracheal

        Translation: SOME girls (probably including you) are bigoted feminist hate mongers who don’t deserve to be in ANY sandbox.

        • goatini

          Rebecca West, in the 1910s, said it best about misogynist creeps like you:

          “I myself have never been able to find out precisely what feminism is: I only know that people call me a feminist whenever I express sentiments that differentiate me from a doormat, or a prostitute.”

          • Tracheal

            Happily lots of women and men HAVE been able to find out what feminism means since Ms. West died in diabolical confusion. But I can see that brainwashed misandrist creeps like you will probably never bother. Your loss.

          • goatini

            “Misandry” – a made-up word signifying the selfishness and immaturity of insecure little boys who, as I pointed out before, don’t want to share the sandbox. Go cry, little boy.

          • Tracheal

            “Misogyny” – a made-up word signifying the selfishness and immaturity of insecure little girls who, as I pointed out before, don’t have what it takes to share the sandbox. Go cry, little girl.

          • goatini

            Oh, and what a load of nonsense, “diabolical confusion”. You really, really hate women of quality.

          • Tracheal

            No. I really hate women who pretend to be confused about the meaning of feminism. It’s the standard female lying game. By not defining the term they can have their hate mongering, their bigotry and their female supremacy (‘equality’) too.

      What a pile of hot and steaming BS.

      • Tracheal

        Hot and steaming indeed but the intellectual CS comes from bigoted plums on your side. See Who Stole Feminism for the rest of the story.

      the reason that theres no mens movement is the same reason theres no nazi support movement. Being a man myself I’ve never seen a male victim of sexism there are however many many female victims of sexism. Looking at your hate filled tirade I also can clearly see you’re also a racist as well. Clearly you’re a bigot and quite stupidly proud of it. In fact its quite humilating to be a member of the human race alongside you “Trachael”. If I had the means to leave this planet and be something other than human just to get away from you I gladly would with no second thoughts or regret.

      • Arekushieru

        Also ableist, as evidenced by the use of the word ‘lame’.

        • cj99.willingness99@gmail.com

          Lame describes the sexual prowess (or usually lack thereof) of such sexist bigots.

          • Arekushieru

            Um, like I said, it’s an ableist term, so could we please not use it? Thank you!

          • Tracheal

            See also ‘Feminist Shaming Tactics’ online.

      • Tracheal

        False accusations of sexism and racism are certainly cowardly but that’s par for the course in feminist covens like this one. That said the MHRM, anti-feminist, and free speech movements are rapidly growing. Feminist bigotry/misandry is indeed going viral…so that the status quo is beginning to be exposed as feminist fascism.

    • Arekushieru

      False equivalency is not balance, ignorant ass. Seriously, you tell ME how those who have always had the biggest and best sandboxes to play in, while always excluding those from the cheapest and smallest sandboxes, being given the same time and space to speak, WITHIN the cheapest and smallest sandboxes, as the others who have always been forced to occupy them, IS fucking balance? Why are misogynists so irrational?

      The only ones who are encouraged to troll are misogynists such as yourself. If that WEREN’T true, after all, you would see more of US breaking into YOUR space. We aren’t. If that WEREN’T true, you would NOT see fuckwads such as yourself invade OUR personal spaces. You ARE. After all, only when women’s voices actually began to be HEARD, did misogynists such as yourself come out of the woodwork, NOT before. See, it’s quite SIMPLE really. If women hadn’t NEEDED to be heard, they wouldn’t be raising their voices. By trying to silence and shame women, you only prove WHY women needed to be heard. You’re like dogs chasing their tails. Only worse. After all, dogs, at least, eventually realize what a futile endeavour it is.

      Mainstream media supports YOU guys. It’s just as full of misogyny as YOU guys are, anyways.

      Finally, men can NOT experience sexism. They can be discriminated against, but they can NOT be the target of sexist acts. And you imply that you AGREE with this by using the term *reverse* sexism.

      OOOOOPPPPSSSS.

      • cj99.willingness99@gmail.com

        I do agree with what you say. Thinking of it there’s a slim chance of men being targets of the religious right but its a very different form of abuse than this article describes.

        • Tracheal

          Actually, traditional mores are even more dangerous to males than are bigoted feminist superstitions. But you’ve got to make distinctions here. To troll bigoted hate mongering Trolls (feminists) is hardly abuse except in the wildly exaggerated cases where threats of violence do occur. It’s interesting to note that the Troll above never mentioned the blatant death threats which come from her twisted Rad Fem sisters either. What gives here girlies?

      • Tracheal

        Why are misandrists so irrational? Men overwhelmingly do the dying so that feminist bigots can do they lying…about men. The Disposable (male) Sex is always everywhere more oppressed than is is the indispensable Coddled ‘Gender’ (female SEX) in the The Woman Racket (Moxon) but feminist hate mongers would have us believe the opposite.

        Feminist bigots have been able to move their trolls into the Oval Office, most academic covens, the lame stream media, Hollywood and everywhere else where they can spread pigheaded propaganda or pass vile totalitarian travesties like VAWomanA. The routinely violate free speech protections, try to shame others into silence, and censor or trash (see above) anyone who dares diss their diabolical dogma. And then they double bind blame or double bind shame their opponents as misogynists simply for daring to call their obvious hatred what it is.

        20/20 still hasn’t run it’s FIRST report on the MHRM, anti-feminists seem to be banned altogether from the lame stream faux-liberal press, and it’s always politically incorrect to name and shame feminist bigots. The hatred of men and boys is the order of the day in the feminist Age of Misandry. But you’d have us believe that feminist bigots are all about sweetness and light…and that the Coddled ‘Gender’ is oppressed.

        Finally, men routinely suffer from bigoted reverse sexism…thanks to loathsome laws like VAWomanA which are obviously sexist on their face and certainly in their bigoted applications. Men are routinely targets of sexist tyranny. Feminists are routinely the perpetrators of said tyranny too.

        OOOOPPPPSSSS, indeed.

    You asked. This has been my answer:

    Wherein I End the Abortion Debate.

    There is nothing to ‘debate.’

    My ova, my fetuses, my children and my sexual organs are mine. They are not YOURS. We do not belong to the State. My sexual life is private and not subject to public or religious review.

    My sexuality is private. Why would anyone presume to discuss it with me? Or follow me down the street trying to give me a baby blanket or wave a sign with a stillborn decayed corpse in my face? Simple. They are getting off.

    A fact of women’s lives, from the moment they get close to puberty and sometimes before, is that somebody is always trying to rub up against you. I am drawing a line in the sand. No discussion. My sexuality is private. Mind your own business. That is a truly American value.

    Anyone who performs an action on my life/body to resolve their own desire or discomfort, without request or consent from me, is a rapist. That is the definition of rape.

    I include in the set (rapists) those who describe themselves as ‘pro choice’ whose benevolence includes acting economically and morally to ‘make abortion rare.’ Bugger off. You are all intrusive, annoying, and perverted in your focus. Mind your own sex organs.
    I do not want you thinking about or doing anything about mine.

    I want the Democratic Party to live up to the party platform and defend and provide for the welfare of women by unequivocally supporting safe and legal medical abortion and contraception. I am encouraged by some signs that Democrats will do so. Or if you cannot stand Democrats, vote Green or Socialist or Independent. But Vote.

    Governments only responsibility is to teach human biology to those in public schools. When the Government has the Stones to do that, at the least, then we can talk. The European countries have lower teen pregnancy rates and lower rates of infant/mother mortality because they teach human biology to their children. And they provide universal health care.

    I make no bones about it. My issue is Women’s Health and Freedom. You could be the best thing since sliced bread on all the issues, but mess with Roe v. Wade and abortion access and your ass is mine. Figuratively speaking of course. I am no slimy terrorist.

    Does the garden variety misandrist Troll (feminist) above look ‘terrified’ as she giggles happily about ‘death threats’? Did she mention far worse vileness from her Rad Fem sisters? Did she discuss the diabolical ways in which feminist Trolls have subjugated the lame stream press so that feminist bigotry is never able to be challenged?
