By now you've probably seen the viral video of a woman walking the streets of New York City, getting catcalled by a countless number of men.
What you maybe haven't seen is the angry response to it.
Here's one example on YouTube by a user named Hadrian Hughes: "What a rude, ungrateful b----. Apparently people speaking to you is harassment now. Well, I have news for you, with that attitude you're gonna die lonely."
While there's disagreement about whether or not what the woman faced was harassment, responses like this highlight a problem: the topic of harassment or sexism can elicit responses that are angry and threatening.
Another example is #GamerGate, an online debate that's centrally about misogyny in video game culture.
Feminist game critics like Anita Sarkeesian have received rape and death threats, bomb scares at events where they're speaking, and more.
Anna North, staff editor for the NY Times, explains that the vitriol often quashes any meaningful discussion and intimidates women to staying silent.
