On Monday, the Guardian asked women in the U.K. to share their experiences of being “subjected to online misogyny” – and quicky found itself subject to a barrage of replies from women for whom the main source of online misogyny was, er, the Guardian. Guido Fawkes has collected some of the responses:
- “Does a pile on started by Owen Jones which ended with a man local to me developing a fixation on me and leaving me scared to leave the house count?” – Victoria Freeman
- “Owen Jones” – Julie Bindel
- “Well I cancelled my Guardian subscription because I was sick and tired of your biased reporting on gender ideology, which endangers women. Does that count?” – FletchFletchington
- “You removed J.K. Rowling from your list of celebrity birthdays because her support for women’s rights upset the incels in your IT department.” – Simon Edge
- “Ask the female journalists you drove out of their jobs. If you can remember what ‘female’ means.” – Sarah Phillimore
- “There was the time a clownish far-Left publication insisted birthing bodies and chestfeeding were ‘inclusive’ terms. Gross.” – Rita Panagi
- “Remember those articles you published about the Wi Spa incident, making out women and girls being exposed to a naked sex offender in the changing rooms were bigots?” – Andrea Paterson
- “I’ve had an awful amount of abuse, and a pile on orchestrated by your Owen Jones, who is really quite a horrific nasty bully.” – Red Tory
- “Seeing you get rid of Suzanne Moore and other female writers so you could keep misogynist opinion and misogynists like Owen Jones. You are truly the nastiest most anti-women paper in the U.K.” – Lottie Lewis
