so you're all telling me that it's unreasonable to disable comments if you're receiving death threats and threats of sexual violence, as well as attempts to hack your online identity (twitter, etc).? or to draw attention to this fact? of course not all the negative comments will be of this nature, but you can be damn sure giant bomb would take action if threats were made against patrick of a similar nature.
you don't get to have it both ways. you can't say she's a coward for disabling comments, and then a damsel for leaving them on and drawing attention to the troglodytes that were attempting to intimidate her. besides- we're talking about youtube comments...the last great bastion for those who enjoy ethnic slurs, noting good boobshot timestamps, and beliebers. not exactly a paragon of fair and measured discourse.
I never said it was unreasonable to disable comments. But if you're trying to incite changes in society and giving yourself a voice, why would you stop everyone else for trying to speak their mind? What if they bring something to the discussion that can help your cause or debunk it completely? You can still disable the shitty comments as they come. But what happens when she deletes all the horrid comments? She leaves all the well thought out counter arguments that make her out to be what she really is, a control freak that wants the world to be how she sees it. She'll name anybody who disagrees with her a misogynist or brainwashed or whatever. She doesn't want to initiate change, she wants to tell people what to do without the ability to say otherwise.
How does disabling comments help prevent people from hacking your social profiles?
The reason why I think nay, know that she's a charlatan is because she thinks women being sexual is sexist and that somehow man is to blame. Even when the women who are being sexuality love it and are happy with it, she blames sexism. I wouldn't doubt that if she had her way every woman would be wearing burka's and men would have their eye's and dicks removed from their bodies.
She's anti equality and that's why I no longer listen to anything she says.
