I've just read [livejournal.com profile] kizzia's latest post, in which she discusses how the whole sexism debate sparked by [livejournal.com profile] wellingtongoose's recent meta on the subject has made her feel - specifically in relation to the hate that [livejournal.com profile] wellingtongoose has received for daring to venture an opinion on the topic. 

I wish I had written this - GO READ IT HERE - it encapsulates exactly how I feel about the whole thing. 

Bullying is never acceptable.

Just no!

I agree.

[livejournal.com profile] wellingtongoose does NOT deserve the flack she is getting for an opinionated piece. You don't agree. Fine. Make a coherant rebuttle and I may be bothered to read it. Fact is, I agree with a lot of what she has to say.

The whole thing is starting to become one other person's soap box for their opinion. Ridiculous.

Quite. And the stuff that was happening on Tumblr was appalling. I do not understand what goes on in some people's heads :(

So ridiculous. Unfortunately, I'm not surprised. One of the worst parts about the Internet is the anonymity allows people to spew vitriol at their leisure, because they don't feel there are any true repercussions for doing such.

I'm very impressed by what I saw of [livejournal.com profile] wellingtongoose's posts. I'm going to keep my nose out of it, though. If the poor ickle trollies thought HER views were offensive, their heads would explode if they heard some of my rants on the subject.

It's sad that we aren't surprised by it. I mean Kiz got some truly vile personal abuse because someone disagreed with a plot point in a Merlin fic she was writing. There are some people that make me ashamed to live on this planet.

Oh yeah. I was part of a group about 10 years ago in another fandom that had a lot of nastiness directed our way. I was informed at one point my name was on someone's "list". *snort*

Unfortunately, the number of people who make me disgusted to be breathing the same air they are seems to grow daily.
