If Comedy Has No Lady Problem, Why Am I Getting So Many Rape Threats? By Lindy West


Hello Travelers,

With a somewhat legendary second-post-of-the-day, I come to you with the disturbing but, tragically, not very surprising news that yet another woman is being threatened and insulted for speaking out against rape. The act alone is atrocious, but despite the plethora of evidence, I find myself in a state of stunned disbelief that some have the audacity to effectively support rapists by demeaning victims and those who act on their behalf.

There is little I can do to prevent this trend from spreading, aside from blogging about it (at least, for now…), so I am doing what is within my power. Remember: even if the only thing you can do is tweet in protest, that is still thousands of times better than staying silent. Please take a moment to view the link below and stand against the bigotry that allows this to occur.

Sincerest regards,
Alex Chase
