@RogerioFM@suppaphly42@zeca04@suppaphly42: Oh don't think I don't give a damn. I have lost sleep and feared for my safety due to death threats and other nastiness delivered to me. I can get really down over this stuff. I am very emotions driven, prone to wear my heart on not just my sleeve, but everywhere. It's why I tend to avoid comment sections: I get enough hate brought to my Twitter feed and my email that I would rather avoid actively seeking it out. And what I get is meaningless compared to what many, many women in the industry contend with.
In the end I hate that we tell the recipients of threats and gross online behavior to get over it, rather than tell the people being gross that that's not OK. But until that day comes--which it likely never will--all I can do is either take the high road, or give a hearty middle finger. And I am known to do both!
