I’m not sure this has been established, but I have come up with a way to find bigots on Facebook! I’ve had some friends do “Friend Culls” which I have survived, apparently, but I want to figure out a better way of keeping good people around my page.
1. Make post about something you are passionate about; in my case, feminism and diversity of race in the media.
2. Allow hateful comments but then see if they can understand your PoV.
3. The ones that keep talking you down are the ones you may defriend if you wish especially if you barely know them. With closer friends, you can show them more things or realise they might be a fuckwit anyway.
These conversations also seem to be really good if you need a caffeine hit, or in my case an anxiety attack.
*makes video about women’s rights*
*has comments swarmed by MRAs and anti-feminists calling me a “cunt”, “dumb bitch”, and “devil woman”*
*is told repeatedly that internet hate isn’t gendered and men get it just as bad if not worse*
You’re right. It’s my fault for looking at shitty comments I get notifications for and not the fault of the assholes making those comments. Makes perfect sense.
i wonder how many people i’m in the “i’d be down if you asked” zone with
I don’t think writers realize that “strong female character” means “well written female character” and not “female character who punches stuff and shoots stuff”
I just need to remember it’s not about educating the opposition who have no interest in being educated. Surprisingly enough, not everything has to be catered toward them.
