he “well, actually” squad doesn’t make an attack.… it to you- it is. Twitter is not a dating site. Neither is Instagram. And especially not LinkedIn. Being a woman online means responding to and ignoring these types of messages, and rolling your eyes at men who actually use the phrase “well, actually” to make sure sure you know that they know things better than you do. It’s obnoxious and incredibly common. Sometimes I completely refrain from posting a strong opinion online, or take extra time to carefully craft a tweet in such a way that the “well, actually” squad doesn’t make an attack. I wish I was joking, but sadly- I’m not. Being a woman on the internet can be terrible sometimes.
Before avatars, I used to think there were a lot of 13 year old boys on the Internet. Now that avatars are a thing, I’m kinda horrified. You forgot to mention unsolicited nude pics of a particular part of the anatomy that women. Hopefully you’re not getting those, too. lol.
