Cyber Harassment

By More Banana

In this episode Jessy and Rebekah get attacked by turkeys on Staten Island, talk about cyber harassment they have experienced and the well-known cases that make them mad/nervous, and then close the episode out by wondering what animal is the rudest. You don’t want to miss it. We promise.6:15 Jessy and Rebekah get into the meat of this episode: the cyber harassment that women experience on the internet, starting with a story Rebekah tells of a particular internet troll who used to get drunk and make up email addresses to bother her from. Addresses he would promptly delete after sending rude emails.8:46 You can, and should, read Rebekah’s blog post entitled “Apparently I’m a Failure” here. But you should also read some of her other stuff.9:35 Jessy reads a comment that she got on her YouTube page (which you should check out and subscribe to because it’s great and funny and educational). Check out this video specifically: The Dirty F Word.11:55 Just a reminder about the “sorry jar!” We spoke about it in Episode 6: Sorry Not Sorry.15:00 The Duke Lacrosse case. Every time someone questions a woman’s veracity, they almost always reference this case. Here aresome articles. And, in fact, the story is far more complicated than the way Rebekah characterized it. The men were exonerated but the accuser still stands by her allegations, as she serves time in jail for murdering her abusive boyfriend. Which is a conversation for another day.21:10 Here is some information about GamerGate which was the most ridiculous online sexist mob to ever exist. Until the next one.24:20 You should check out everything Feminist Frequency has to offer.28:25 Check out our podcast about Gun Violence and Domestic Abuse if you missed it. welcometomyvagina@gmail.com@welcometomyvagina@welcometomyvagJessy’s awesome YouTube videos!
