You may feel that you would prefer not to get online rape threats. That is normal too! If you truly prefer not to receive online rape threats, you can take several preventative steps, such as not writing, not writing about gender, not writing about Ferrante, not writing online, not being online, not checking your mentions or comment moderation, and, of course, not talking ever. However, we cannot promise that these steps will make sure you do not receive online rape threats. Remember that it’s not what you do as a woman that leads you to receive online rape threats. Being a woman, by itself, is enough.
–Sarah and Sarah, Congrats On Your First Online Rape Threat!
