How do you get away with having your life taken away from you?
Posted On August 8, 2021
When it comes to dealing with personal issues, most people have a fairly standard response.
I’m a bad person and I deserve to be punished for it.
But that response doesn’t apply to many who feel like they’re not being treated fairly.
In fact, the opposite is true.
A recent study from the University of New South Wales found that many people who feel they’re being unfairly treated are in fact, being unfairly discriminated against.

The study also found that women were more likely to be harassed online and to have felt unsafe online, and were more frequently targeted for stalking.
According to The Register, these problems are compounded when it comes with online communities, such as social media, which are used by many to share information.
Many of these issues are exacerbated when women are targeted for harassment online, especially when it’s men who are online abusers.
But even when men are targeted, their online behaviour isn’t always monitored, nor are their actions taken.
As a result, women who have experienced online harassment can feel trapped in the loop of the cycle.
The Register reports that, on average, women experience one incident of online harassment every three days.
And this doesn’t include the many other times where they don’t even realise they’ve been targeted.
For example, while women report experiencing sexual harassment on average once every eight days, a recent study found that men experienced harassment on an average three times a day.
While women can experience online harassment in their everyday lives, online abuse is a different story.
The online abuse that women report to the internet abuse team in The Register was described as “frightening and terrifying”.
