Slut-shaming, harassment, and cowardly, anonymous internet trolls

March 14, 2018

I recently posted an article over on Medium in response to a story I had written previously about slut-shaming. In particular, those cowardly, anonymous internet trolls who hide behind their keyboards and hurl insults and pass judgment.

It’s impossible in one article to convey all the pain and suffering women have gone through in our fight for equality.

HUNDREDS OF BLACK AND MEXICAN FAMILIES FILE RACIAL REPARATIONS CLAIM AGAINST CITY OF PALMS SPRINGS

To gain possession of this prime downtown real estate, the city hired contractors to bulldoze the privately-owned houses, often with personal property and belongings inside, and then the city sent the Palm Springs Fire Department to burn the destruction.  Black and Mexican residents were often forced to flee Section 14 with only what they could carry.
