I'm so thankful Lindsay spoke about this, and about how awful it is to be targeted. And that she (and ) showed how valuable it is to lift people up & appreciate them, and to support and praise their work. Because every visible person you see online is being targeted.

Actual training given in 2018 (screams): When women speak, they shouldn’t be shrill. Clothing must flatter, but short skirts are a no-no. After all, “sexuality scrambles the mind.” This was some of the advice offered at a women's empowerment training.
