"When women are harassed on the street, it is considered inappropriate. Online, though, sexual harassment is not only tolerated- it's often lauded. Blog threads or forums where women are attacked attract hundreds of comments, and their traffic rates rocket. Is this what people are really like? Sexist and violent? Misogynist and racist?"
I would imagine that anyone with any sort of social-networking account has encountered misogynistic groups, comments, etc.--I know I have. But what do you do when you come across misogyny on the web? Is there any sort of culpability or social etiquette in place that addresses this issue?
