Tt’s time to stop thinking of trolls as idiots who are just seeking attention, and see them for what they are: Misogynists with a political agenda. These are men that absolutely do not want to live in a society where women are treated equally, and they are obsessed with silencing the women online whose writings they rightfully fear are going to help push society in a more feminist direction. They want to harass feminists into silence. If we keep this understanding front and center and discard useless theories about “attention-seeking” or “lulz”, we can begin to have a more productive conversation about what the hell to do about the problem.

thanks for reading and thanks to anyone who answers. even pointing me towards some resources would be fabulous. i’ve researched it, but i can’t find anything more than a bunch of white people insisting it’s not racist. which is fucking useless cuz i don’t care what white people think about this.
