he just accepts it, not even surprised by it. must happen all the time
I’m so ready for the month-long skeleton party
It still amazes me that I talk to guys who still think they get harassed just as much as women online. Like even from people who aren’t clearly and totally gross dumbasses. It kinda makes me think that, even in the best cases, it might be hard to really understand the sheer difference in frequency. You see a woman get harassed on a game and you go “Oh well I’ve been harassed” without understanding that there is seldom a session for her where that doesn’t happen or understanding what her inbox might look like…
That is a sort of stunning degree of difference.
"The data’s in! Women were lying about online harassment!”
"Aha! We knew it!"
“Yeah, they’ve been severely underreporting how bad things are for them, turns out.”
The link to the study itself appears to be down, so here is a working link to an archived copy. I skimmed it over, and it looks like the article summarizing it is not exaggerating or cherry picking data, for those who don’t have time to read it themselves. The only thing not mentioned is that the study was conducted in 2006. This doesn’t diminish the findings too much, because I doubt the habits of internet dwellers (male or female) have changed enough to dramatically sway the weighting of these numbers in the last 9 years. Regardless, it is still a good habit to check up on studies that people link to, look at how old they are and what all the data says (not just the bits quoted in articles), and then determine if that makes their claims outdated and/or misleading or not. In this case, the claims still turned out to likely be accurate and relevant, but that’s still dismaying because sexisms boooo. :c
I dressed up yesterday like this

Everyone disregarded that and called me Nicki for the entire night.

"this horror movie isn’t very good-"
This is the path the horror fan must walk, this is the path I have chosen.
The path of watching a lot of not very good movies.
