    1. Deepti Gurdasani. (2021, February 27). The campaign against @DrZoeHyde that has involved several scientists targeting her with personal attacks, and trying to misrepresent her is deeply disappointing. She has been referred to as ‘evil’, ‘idiotic’, ‘sadistic’, and a’sociopath’. A few thoughts on these attacks. [Tweet]. @dgurdasani1. https://twitter.com/dgurdasani1/status/1365641557404229638

    1. A parent who is a member of the SST is not permitted to participate in the first three activities identified above or in any other activities of the team which may compromise the confidentiality of a student, consistent with, at a minimum,the requirements of the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (

      I find this so important, I find that parent's gossip so much in my current placement and I'm happy that the confidentiality of students are protected in these activities. Sharing that an HIB incidence has occurred and is being investigated could potentially lead to more harassment and intimidations by the perpetrators.

    1. Harassment is seen as an inevitability for women on the internet, and, as with most awful nonsense, it’s even worse for women of color. I have the privilege of whiteness, but know the onslaught of misogynoir garbage Leslie Jones endured last summer was unique only in scope. If you’re a woman online with anything even remotely resembling an opinion, Twitter eggs will sniff you out like a shark hunting down the scent of blood. They’ll tell you that you deserve to be raped, or that no one would ever sleep with you, that you’re ridden with disease, wearing too much makeup, or not enough makeup, that you’re a whore with bad eyebrows. That… I don’t know, some period joke about the shark’s blood thing. Come get me, trolls, I’m bracing for impact. (Shout out to the orange egg who just messaged me, “Ho, ho, Hitler.”)AdvertisementI think about this too much, and that’s the problem. Online harassment is a theft of my time and energy — time and energy that could have been spent on anything else.The obvious solution seems like it would be not going online. You know, if every time you try to swim laps in a crocodile pit, a crocodile eats one of your limbs, maybe don’t swim in that crocodile pit, right? Except, I don’t know, what if swimming there is needed for your job? Twitter isn’t mandatory for writers, but it can be really important. It’s a gamified means of wasting time, but also a means of networking, while developing and establishing a distinct voice. I’ve gotten most of my work this year through connections built on Twitter. Telling women writers to “just not do that” is like suggesting a New York cab driver relocate to a state where everyone has cars and no one needs cabs. Women already have to stomach enough career disadvantages as it is. Let's think a little more critically about the way bullying exerts itself online. Many times, the targets are women who dare to be anything other than quiet and small. Of course, there are women who are trolls, especially of the celebrity variety, but the overwhelming majority of anonymous trolling takes on the defiant woman, who dares to speak her mind on any of the non-approved subjects.Of course, the ideological and practical have struggled to meet here. Twitter is still trying to wrap its head around basic empathy, despite there being various concrete solutions, and most employers seem to do little more than shrug off the evils of the world. I don’t know that we have to accept that as the way that it is. This isn’t a “men are bad and women are good” argument, though it certainly is gendered. Overall, what if all of us banded together to say, hey, I don’t want to live in a world where people conspire to harass a female writer “until she has a breakdown or goes into porn”? That’s a real thing I saw about myself, by the way.The funny thing is, this argument has been centralized around willful obligation. Women writers and the willful obligation of refusing to give up on an asset to their work, my personal obligation in refusing to be silenced. But there are also women who do things where the word “Twitter” is no weightier than “flutter,” who should be able to participate in a conversation online, just because they want to, without being called a derogatory term.The internet has radically shifted our communication forums, and in many ways the public square has shifted to take place online. Obviously, right? Duh? OK, so what does it mean if women are being ejected from those spaces by sheer force of will? What does it mean if participation comes at a measurable cost of capitalistic forces like time and energy?Anyway, I’m not sure. I’m either a warrior goddess or a triggered snowflake, depending on what side you’re on. If you think the former, I hope you’ll send me a message. This hurts like hell, but I’m in it now, and the support helps a lot.Related: Donald Trump Is Gaslighting AmericaCheck this out: follow usFacebookTwitterPinterest   /* dynamic basic css */ .AR_1.ob-widget .ob-widget-items-container {margin:0;padding:0;} .AR_1.ob-widget .ob-widget-items-container .ob-clearfix {display:block;width:100%;float:none;clear:both;height:0px;line-height:0px;font-size:0px;} .AR_1.ob-widget .ob-widget-items-container.ob-multi-row {padding-top: 2%;} .AR_1.ob-widget .ob-dynamic-rec-container {position:relative;margin:0;padding;0;} .AR_1.ob-widget .ob-dynamic-rec-link, .AR_1.ob-widget .ob-dynamic-rec-link:hover {text-decoration:none;} .AR_1.ob-widget .ob-rec-image-container .ob-video-icon-container {position:absolute;left:0;height:30%;width:100%;text-align:center;top:35%;} .AR_1.ob-widget .ob-rec-image-container .ob-video-icon {display:inline-block;height:100%;float:none;opacity:0.7;transition: opacity 500ms;} .AR_1.ob-widget .ob-rec-image-container .ob-video-icon:hover {opacity:1;} .AR_1.ob-widget .ob_what{direction:ltr;clear:both;padding:5px 10px 0px;} .AR_1.ob-widget .ob_what a{color:#999;font-size:11px;font-family:arial;text-decoration: none;} .AR_1.ob-widget .ob_what.ob-hover:hover a{text-decoration: underline;} .AR_1.ob-widget .ob_amelia, .AR_1.ob-widget .ob_logo, .AR_1.ob-widget .ob_text_logo{vertical-align:baseline !important;display:inline-block;vertical-align:text-bottom;padding:0px 5px;box-sizing:content-box;-moz-box-sizing:content-box;-webkit-box-sizing:content-box;} .AR_1.ob-widget .ob_amelia{background:url('http://widgets.outbrain.com/images/widgetIcons/ob_logo_16x16.png') no-repeat center top;width:16px;height:16px;margin-bottom:-2px;} .AR_1.ob-widget .ob_logo{background:url('http://widgets.outbrain.com/images/widgetIcons/ob_logo_67x12.png') no-repeat center top;width:67px;height:12px;} .AR_1.ob-widget .ob_text_logo{background:url('http://widgets.outbrain.com/images/widgetIcons/ob_text_logo_67x22.png') no-repeat center top;width:67px;height:22px;} @media only screen and (-webkit-min-device-pixel-ratio: 2),(min-resolution: 192dpi) { .AR_1.ob-widget .ob_amelia{background:url('http://widgets.outbrain.com/images/widgetIcons/ob_logo_16x16@2x.png') no-repeat center top;width:16px;height:16px;margin-bottom:-2px;
