Trolling is gendered male

19:15 Jul 1 2015 Los Angeles, CA, USA

Description
It's hard to get demographics on who trolls are, but you note that their targets are usually women, people of color and LGBT people, and sometimes Christians and Republicans.

They're asserting power and privilege in an unmistakable pattern: They're policing against female-gendered behaviors — anything regarded by them as soft or emotional or sentimental. The idea of "raping with logic" comes up again and again. That's how they understand and celebrate their behavior.

Trolling is gendered male. With race, there's this presumption that everyone [trolling] is white, and anyone who deviates from that has to flag themselves. And this is leisure activity. Only a certain kind of person is going to have the time or energy to devote to something that doesn't get them anything other than enjoyment and interest.
