I have something significant to ask you.
- Should a person be allowed to write ‘how-to’ manuals about how to abuse women?
- Should this person be allowed to publish these ‘how-to’ posts on a public blog?
- Should this person be allowed to follow women bloggers who are writing about their escape from an abusive past?
WordPress believes this is a freedom of speech issue. I think this is definitely an issue! The issue is abusive behavior!!! Some behaviors, written or no, are flat out WRONG.

“Anyone else who has also experienced rape, assault, abuse, stalking, or anything similar is likely screaming at the computer screen as much as I did when I read that myself. Admittedly, the support people probably were not prepared for the words I had to say, which, I’m proud to say, were righteously indignant but also respectful. But the reality is that we live in a society and a time where victims of crimes are often more afraid to report the crime than they are to live with it, and where there still is lacking a basic understanding of the psychology of trauma from the viewpoint of the victim.”
