Your Free Speech Does Not Eclipse Mine: The Problem of Harassment as an Accepted Form of Expression—via HuffPost Women

A few years ago, after a charming fellow messaged me about slapping my face with his penis, I deleted my Twitter account and made my other social media accounts private. Instagram was the first to go following an eloquent quip involving the commenter’s penis and my eye socket—on a photo of me holding a kitten. At the time, I assumed the comment was aimed at me; in retrospect, it is very possible it had nothing to do with me. In which case, I hope that kitten is somewhere safe.

You can find my recent essay on feminism, social media harassment, and free speech on The Huffington Post.
