The brilliant Angel K has a new post up about the abusive comments she gets on her blog.   It happens because she’s a survivor speaking out.  I love how she’s titled this piece:  Anonymous Women Haters and Other Animals.  Here’s an excerpt:

I had another abusive comment left for me delightfully on my blog today. It’s great to see that the opposition remain as unintelligent and inarticulate in their response to criticism of their ‘right’ to buy women’s bodies and to vent their hatred as ever.

It’s good to know that I’m touching some nerves out there. This protector of free speech, this defender of men called me a ‘stupid fucking whore’ and a ‘man hater’. Again. Please see previous post for my response to his earlier abusive comments. I don’t think that the many men out there who believe in equality, who don’t treat women like a set of orifices, would thank him for his vitriolic defence of grand scale misogyny in their name.

  2. Angel K, I don’t know you, but your pain comes through in your writing. I know it might sound trite, but I hope you know in your heart of secret hearts that healing is possible and that you can have “Life is good” moments that can sometimes line up so closely together that it seems as though they will never end. I hope you get there soon, and please know that many many people are in your corner cheering you on to victory.
