With his usual combination of brutal honestly and biting satire, he explores online harrasment, revernge porn and the ways in which it generally sucks to be a woman online. It’s well worth watching and absorbing—espeically if you have a white penis.

Out of curiousity: How many guys get threatened on the internet, but do not tell about it on the internet? It seems this is the new physical rape, where men either don’t dare to talk about it or where it’s just laughed away as “nice” or “at least you had sex”.

Not saying it’s not horrible that this is happening, but I just can’t imagine it not happening to guys.

Edit: First thing that pops into my mind is swatting, which has happened to a lot of (live-streaming) gamers.
