ANOTHER KIND OF SEXUAL HARASSMENT ON THE INTERNET:

ANOTHER KIND OF SEXUAL HARASSMENT ON THE INTERNET: Just a little follow up to Garance's interesting post on the sexual harassment female bloggers often face. Men too, can be the victims of this behavior, including yours truly. A commenter on this blog once accused me of being a homosexual and a conservative (I'm neither, not that there's anything wrong with the former), and a prominent college Republican named Ryan Sorba commented on my Campus Progress blog that I must be a "homosexualist." Mind you neither of these were posts that had anything to do with LGBT issues. But just as men try to discredit women they disagree with in the real world and in the blogosphere by reducing them to their appearance or impugning their sexual mores, they may attempt to discredit men they disagree with by questioning their sexuality.
