we knew years ago that white supremacicsts were targeting young white men on reddit, 4chan, 8chan, twitter, etc. we talked about it but were shouted down by leaders of those companies who thought their idea of “free speech” was more important than the threat.

Reactions to E Jean Carroll's story remind me of when I was on jury duty and the whole pool was asked "do you have personal experience or know of anyone who has been sexually assaulted" and all the women raised their hands and the men just stared at us.
