Internet harassment is widespread. A Pew Research poll from October 2014 found that 73 percent of adult internet users “have seen someone be harassed in some way online and 40 percent have personally experienced it.” Women bear the brunt of threatening behavior and are more vulnerable to sexual harassment and stalking, the Pew poll found. So we asked ThinkProgress reporters to share some comments from readers to find out how bad it gets.
ESTHER YU-HSI LEE: Fu** you, you yellow piece of sh**.
ZACK FORD: Hope you get aids and die.
TEXT: Forty percent of internet users have personally experienced online harassment. And women tend to get the worst of it. We asked ThinkProgress reporters to share some comments from readers.
TARA CULP-RESSLER: Tara, Your article that black men being involved in their kids lives is entire bullsh**. Do you get off on being a wide-eyed ass kissing liberal? The stats are concrete. Nearly 70% of black men abandon their kids. They fu** and move on.
JUSTIN SALHANI: Apparently Stinkprogress’ token Muslim doesn’t understand the difference between murder and justified homicide.
LAUREL RAYMOND: And skip the Twinkies and junk food you eat. You need to lose some weight. You’re very unhealthy looking.
BRYCE COVERT: Suck dick and die
TARA CULP-RESSLER: Why do you get off sucking their dick?Do you feel better? Do you feel other assh*** liberals pat you on the back for being a fu**ing asskisser? You fu**s always like to stick your head up black ass and they don’t give a single fu** that you do.
IAN MILLHISER: You are scum. I hope you get aids and die a horrible death. Let me know where you’ll be buried so I can come and piss on your grave communist.
RYAN KORONOWSKI: Don’t be sorry about your stupidity but do try to do something to fix it.
TARA CULP-RESSLER: If you want to help blacks, expose them! Just like other strong leaders have done. Tell the truth. Let them change for the better.
JUDD LEGUM: No wonder dweebs like you never become household names. No brains, no balls, no empathy. You’re a parasite.
JOSH ISRAEL: Left wing bloggers are parasites with zero ethical standards. Like mosquitos.
ALAN PYKE: Man, you are one pathetic, uninformed, dumbass liberal. Are there really people out there that are mindless enough to believe your bullsh**?
TARA CULP-RESSLER: They are not going to advance if asskissing liberal fu**s like you keep feeling good about yourselves by sucking their asses.
ALAN PYKE: America hates you.
