Part of this entry is going to seem ridiculous. A straight, white, conservative male is about to complain of receiving threatening telephone calls.
‘Boohoo,’ you might say. ‘Each day, thousands of women receive death threats, rape threats, and all kinds of other harassment over the Internet, over telephones, in person, and everywhere else.’
And you’d have a point. This article isn’t my entry into the Harassed Olympics. This is instead an article about the way social media has inherited deep systemic problems from yesterday’s telecommunication.
