Yesterday, Julie shared a video featuring her and Sarah Spain, another female sports writer (who I immediately began following on Twitter after watching this video).
Per Julie, these are JUST the tweets they felt comfortable having guys read aloud. They've received much worse.
How does anyone think it's OK to say this to another human? Even through a computer screen?
After the video was out, Julie and Sarah received lots of support from people (including men) who were appalled by the things said. They also had a lot of unsympathetic responses:
"They're just jokes."
"Male sports reporters get it just as bad."
"It's just the Internet."
"When you're a celebrity, this will happen. You should expect it."
Seriously? You're going to justify someone saying, "I hope you get raped again"?
I just can't comprehend people who think this behavior is acceptable in any form.
