Women and Online Harassment

A few examples of what I experience every day…

A few months back, I began meticulously documenting the unsolicited messages I receive across all three of my social media accounts: Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. For sure, some of these messages are more innocuous than others, but none of that changes the fact that these are 100% unsolicited. I am not entitled to anyone’s time. I do not owe anyone pleasantries. I am not required to any of these people. In my opinion, this is little better than street harassment, but street harassment. That said, buckle up!
