Comment The vigilantes picked the wrong time and place. (Score 2, Interesting) 176

After The New York Times published an account [late in 2012] of a horrific rape against Alayna Macaluso in Steubenville, Ohio, an online vigilante campaign was started...the campaign targeted local officials who the vigilantes felt weren't prosecuting the rape investigation seriously because the alleged perpetrators were high school football players

In 2016, the vigilantes would have been given an imprimatur to destroy the town, as exemplified by the recent Stanford case.
The prevailing attitude at Stanford is that disputed consent only favors the woman, and that Turner's hometown must be made to pay for his actions.

If it was at a prestigious university, they'd not even need a rape case to destroy the person. Washington & Lee used Title IX to wreck someone's life.
The worst parts of it are that no crime occurred, that due process wasn't served, and that there was no legal charge - just straight intimidation.

About the only message worth sending: Harden The Fuck Up (his words, not mine). They're from another well-known Australian that had more guts as a criminal than the entirety of the SJW population.
One could probably add the following:

Chopper: ..and this is Brianna Wu, a professional victim!
[Imitation Wu]: I'm transgender and that makes me special. Facts don't matter, since I can have my friends on Twitter call you a bigot!
Chopper: Here's a reply from the Abuse Department: Harden the fuck up.

Devyn Rodriguez @DevynRodriguez: @Spacekatgal @slashdot That comment section is a depressing example of people not getting it.

Phoebe Washington @Feministphoebe: @Spacekatgal @slashdot just ignore the haters. You're an incredible woman.

Consider these people defenders of harassment, especially given that they've threatened more than they've actually been threatened (aside from staged incidents, nil). Such defense is not maintaining civility, but to defend a logically indefensible narrative from criticism. Shutting it up or blocking it won't make the painful truth any less true.

Comment So you support Brianna Wu, a known harasser? (Score 1) 557

Not if reasonable, SJW resistant, individuals (Cernovich comes to mind) have the financial clout to reclaim ground lost to harassers such as her, Chelsea van Valkenberg, and their enablers. It'd be interesting to wake up and see them lose editorial control of places, courtesy new owners firing them for harassment. That is, harassment of the kind that they accuse of others but commit themselves.
