  • Have you ever been harassed online?

    I work for a cybersecurity website, and we're writing an online security guide to empower and help women combat online harassment. Harassment happens on dating apps, in work emails, and on social media. We believe that including real stories will help others relate and illustrate how this affects women everywhere. I think this is a great forum, and I would love to hear your story if you're willing to share it. I am also happy to keep your story anonymous.

    Thankfully, I have not been harrassed online. But I know many are. I think bullies can be found in any walk of life: negative self talk does give some people the devil inside. It isn't right, but it happens. I don't lie about myself online, but I do try to be positive and accepting of people who have low self esteem. I had low self esteem as a teenager and know the upset. Being bullied is very upsetting and I do think online bullying is equally bad as bullying in the real world. I do think if someone is being harrassed online they need to tell someone IRL.
