The UN Wants To Regulate The Internet Because Feminists’ Feelings Get Hurt

1984, you called?

The United Nations Women group published a report, “Cyber Violence Against Women And Girls: A Global Wake-up Call,” that called for countries around the world to flex their regulatory muscles over Internet companies in order to curb rampant “cyber violence”.

Infamous Internet feminist Anita Sarkeesian, described as “a survivor of cyber violence” (lol seriously?), spoke at the launch of the report.  She argued for more regulation of Internet activities to save women from online harassment.

From the report:

“In this paper we’re arguing that complacency and failure to address and solve cyber violence could significantly impede the uptake of broadband services by girls and women worldwide,” said ITU Secretary-General Houlin Zhao, who serves as co-Vice Chair of the Broadband Commission, alongside UNESCO Director-General Irina Bokova. “The Net is an amazing resource for personal empowerment, and we need to ensure that as many girls and women as possible benefit from the amazing possibilities it offers.”

“Online violence has subverted the original positive promise of the internet’s freedoms and in too many circumstances has made it a chilling space that permits anonymous cruelty and facilitates harmful acts towards women and girls,” said UN Women’s Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka. We want to reclaim and expand the opportunities it offers. That means recognizing the scale and depth of the damage being done – and taking strong, concerted steps to call it – and stop it.  Abuse online is still abuse, with potency and very real consequences.”

The Factual Feminist has a perfect rebuttal to the report’s ridiculous and inaccurate claims:

If this report lead to anything, The Meninist would be as good as done considering the “abuse” we give feminists on a daily basis (aka disagreeing with them). Luckily for us, and logic, the UN took down the original report after numerous factual errors were found, so it looks like “online women abusers” like us are safe…for now.
