Open Question: What do you think-has the web (and GWS) become a sexists' paradise? Why or why not?
From Yahoo Answers
Someone asked why there's scads of questions in GWS that sound like they don't think much of feminists, feminism
, women, girls and females in general. So I found this article titled "How the web became a sexists' paradise" http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2007...ender.blogging
Does the article match your experience here in GWS and/or other forums that include discussions of gender studies? What's your beautiful story or horror story of trying to discuss gender studies on the web? FYI: What do forums do that make sure sexists don't rule?: "Dealing with hate speech, flaming, and trolls": http://cfp.wikia.com/wiki/Dealing_wi...ng,_and_trolls
Re: Open Question: What do you think-has the web (and GWS) become a sexists' paradise
The Internet has become a paradise for anyone who wanted to be a complete dick since it's anonymous in the loose sense.
It's a place where there is still an iota of free speech left so yes people will go a bit mad with it. This used to happen a lot even before the internet but in real life.
It's the perfect place for spreading one's ideology to a wide audience and gathering a lot of followers. You can simply block out the haters.
Not many people really know what sexism is, surprisingly enough. When I ask I often get a response along the lines of:
So when people say the internet is a heaven for sexists; is that an accurate statement?
When someone says something about gender you don't agree with.
