"For women on the Internet, it doesn’t get better" by Samantha Allen (via femfreq)
If there are any psychology / sociology grad students looking for research projects, I bet it would be very easy to find a bunch of internet douchebags who would gladly spew their effed up world views onto your carefully designed surveys.
I would really like to know more about these people…whether they’re “otherwise nice guys” IRL, or whether they have no friends because everyone has figured out how much they suck, or whether they have a social group where it’s acceptable to be, like, a terrible person.
That would be simple and useful research to do, and also probably pretty easy to get published.
I personally often find myself assuming very specific things about people who leave these kinds of comments, but up to this point I’ve never seen anyone do any actual research on what sorts of people they are. My assumptions could be entirely incorrect…and, indeed, probably are (since, in my experience, an individuals assumptions about sociological phenomena have a very low chance of matching with the complicated reality of culture.)
If anyone does this…put me in the acknowledgements!(via edwardspoonhands)
