So, what sort of content does the UN want to censor? ISIS recruitment videos, perhaps, which lure women into lives of rape and servitude? Live-streamed executions from Syria? Revenge porn or snuff videos? There’s no shortage of dangerous and potentially traumatising content on the web, after all, much of it disproportionately affecting women.
Alas not. The UN is hung up on “cyber violence against women,” a Kafkaesque term that is apparently shorthand for “women being criticised on the internet.” At least, that’s how at least two attendees at the launch of the UN report, published by the United Nations Broadband Commission, explained it yesterday.
According to feminist culture critic Anita Sarkeesian, who spoke at the event, online “harassment” doesn’t simply consist of what is “legal and illegal,” but “also the day-to-day grind of ‘you’re a liar’ and ‘you suck,’ including all of these hate videos that attack us on a regular basis.”
Let’s get rid of the UN….it’s more useless than Obama.
Hey feminists – – who’s your daddy?
I move that there should be a feminist boycott if the internet.
This is just another case of fembitching
in reaction to simple mansplaining.
Fcuk ’em if they can’t take a joke!
I don’t see any men’s groups requesting something similar. Perhaps it’s because men are emotionally stronger than women. Are feminists suggesting that women are the weaker sex?
What if you ARE a liar and you DO suck?
Sit down, you werent called
Make me a sammich!
Then you might just be a Clinton…
Looks like the U.N. (Uneeded Nutjobs) have cured all the world’s ills and are now working on imaginary problems…And I bet President Fecal Top will propose to send them billions more to fight the imaginary war on people who are mean to ugly womens who vote democrap…
I hate to sound like the late great Andy Rooney, but “did you ever notice” that liberal women and femminazi’s are firmly entrenched on the side of ugly? Clinton, Piglosi, Boxer,Feinswine,The fake indian, Bwarney frank…the list goes on and on…
