progressive blogging and harassment links

Note: both posts contain discussion of and graphic examples of threatening online harassment.

+ Skud at Geek Feminism on On being harassed: a little GF history and some current events.

+ s.e. smith at Tiger Beatdown on On Blogging, Threats, and Silence.

I have to admit, I didn't know. I honestly didn't know it was quite so widespread and quite so bad. Both articles are horrifying and eye-opening, and I'm grateful to the authors for sharing their experiences in spite of the risks.

Grah. :( I hate that this stuff is so prevalent. It's good to talk about it, though -- people who get this abuse really shouldn't feel like they're alone.
