Restructured the entire thing (4 timelines down to 2, events told in a diff order) and changed the POV to omniscient.

But at the very least, if we are forced to invest the hours to make the internet less unsafe, social media platforms should at least enforce the guidelines they actually set out for users and not enable obvious harassment and abusive behavior.

It shouldn’t be on targets of online harassment to bear the brunt of fighting the tide of shitty behavior on the internet. (Have you ever sat back to think about how many hours WOC must sink into the labour of documenting our harassers?)

What hope do targets of online harassment have when even what few enforceable rules that exist on the internet are basically lip service?

There’s a lot more we as a community can be doing to take a stand against misogyny-fueled online harassment. But we also need to be taking Twitter et al to task for writing community guidelines that seem to be only selectively enforced.

It further seems like whatever algorithm Twitter & other social media use is weighted — accounts with more followers, or more reports on a user, seem to result in more reasonable action. This is problematic when you’re dealing with a burner acct that no one else is paying attn to

There have been several accounts that have engaged in harassing, abusive, and downright threatening behavior — and yet when I report them, half the time Twitter declares them not to be in violation of the platform’s community guidelines.

Can we please focus on this for a second? There’s a lot of talk right now about online harassment, and what can be done. Frankly, there’s a lot more that can be done, but just for starters, Twitter, Facebook and others need to be held accountable for just enforcing their TOS.

I think we need more women in the government. You too? Donate $20 to and you could win a basket of SIGNED books by 10 authors (including me).

Hey , you need to take action every time harassment is reported (which is often). Not just when a verified user makes a point of calling it out. EVERY TIME.
