Discussing gendered harassment with someone like Justin Vacula (who is still demanding to know how it is possible for anyone to know when, where, or even if sexism is happening) is a little like discussing geology or evolutionary biology with a creationist who is demanding to have it demonstrated that we can study events and processes that happened in the past. It’s a “debate” with someone who has prima facie rejected the whole premise of actually studying the question at hand. The results are a predictable waste of everybody’s time.
I mean, look at this.
Still waiting for someone to demonstrate how they know women who face criticism, ridicule online experience this because they are women.

He was linked to http://bit.ly/v5OsD5, but I am pretty sure from his continued responses that he didn’t use the recommended resource.
