Me: #YesAllWomen The fact that I get 10x more threats from men who hate me b/c I’m a feminist than believers who hate me b/c I’m an atheist.

Asshole on Twitter: @GretaChristina “Give me attention.”

Right. Because writing about your lifelong experiences with misogynist violence totally makes you an attention seeker.

Oh, and for the record, here is the asshole’s Twitter profile:

    That looks like something from Dexter. Do people self-identify as psychopaths these days?

    Also, if you tweeting is because you want attention, then that means the same applies to them, no? By which logic, it can’t possibly be a bad thing… *eyeroll*

    Begging for attention by accusing women of attention-seeking to dismiss their fears, observations, and conversation about misogyny. He could have left the quotation marks off, it would have been more honest. Also, thanks for the juxtaposition of gratuitous and fantastic uses for social media.

    He’s 16 or 17. I wonder what his father, whose name and professional identity I found in fifteen minutes of basic Googling, would feel about this. I’m almost disappointed he wasn’t one of the ones threatening you.
