One thought on “Sexism as seen on Facebook

  1. I am really excited by all these projects that have popped up in the past few years (hollaback, Fat Ugly or Slutty , the What It’s Like… blog, etc) that use social media to document the patterns of problematic behavior that would otherwise go unnoticed or brushed off as anomalous by a lot of people. It’s hard to argue that sexism isn’t a thing when you are confronted with a list of dozens, hundreds, and possibly even thousands of instances of it…especially if you see it only took days or a few weeks to compile the list.

    It’s turbo-charged anecdotal evidence.
