I consider myself lucky to be at the one-year anniversary of this blog, and by goodness, I have not received a threatening comment! (*snaps*) Hopefully this blog post doesn’t INVITE harassing and threatening comments!
I keep my blog pretty docile in my opinion…I like to keep it light, fun, motivating, brief, educational, and somewhat opinionated obviously, haha. Some of my “female blogger colleagues” (or “She-Knights” as I was once referred to by an angry commenter…haha I actually love that term now thanks to him/her!) who write some pretty moving pieces often receive HORRIBLE backlash (including threats of violence, horrifying language, etc.) Apparently, this is a pretty serious issue in the world of feminist blogging, and especially the age of the ANONYMOUS COMMENTER.
I have to admit, I haven’t read her whole paper yet, but so far I’m really intrigued by Danielle Keats Citron’s paper on “Law’s Expressive Value in Combating Cyber Gender Harassment”. I encourage other’s out there to take a read, especially any tech gurus out there…and of course fellow bloggers.
