With media so heavily focused on bad men, you might begin to think that there aren't any good ones left. To find out if this was the case, Twitter user @emrazz addressed their 137K followers, asking all males to share their experience in standing up to misogyny. (Facebook cover image: Alan Kotok)

The tweet received 833 responses in just two days. And it wasn't just men telling their stories. Folks of both genders were applauding these random acts of kindness, saying their faith in humanity had just been restored.

Brave! Again, not many would understand the situation and less would help. Chances are high that they (the guys) put something in her drink. Still happens far too often. Glad the woman got out of it without any harm!

Replace "women" with "anyone" and you've got a perfect statement. Good on the guy for standing up to the sleazebag though.

Seeing this kind of activity on Twitter is especially interesting. The social network was dubbed as "a toxic place for women" by Amnesty International after the organization conducted a study there. Calling it Troll Patrol, the researchers used crowdsourcing, data sience & machine learning to "measure violence and abuse against women on Twitter."

A friend's son quit his after-school electronica club because girls are recruited, then made secretary. He complained, nothing changed, he left.

"Our findings reveal the sheer scale and nature of online abuse faced by women and provides a resource to researchers and engineers interested in exploring the potential of machine learning in content moderation," Amnesty International wrote. "These findings are the result of a collaboration between Amnesty International and Element AI, a global artificial intelligence software product company. Together, we surveyed millions of tweets received by 778 journalists and politicians from the UK and US throughout 2017 representing a variety of political views, and media spanning the ideological spectrum. Using cutting-edge data science and machine learning techniques, we were able to provide a quantitative analysis of unprecedented scale of online abuse against women in the UK and USA."

Together, they found out that "7.1% of tweets sent to the women in the study were 'problematic' or 'abusive.' This amounts to 1.1 million tweets mentioning 778 women across the year, or one every 30 seconds."

Furthermore, women of color, (black, Asian, Latinx and mixed-race women) were 34% more likely to be mentioned in abusive or problematic tweets than white women. "Black women were disproportionately targeted, being 84% more likely than white women to be mentioned in abusive or problematic tweets."

Every kid should be able to choose themselves with which toy to play or what kind toy to get from their parents (as much as it's possible or realistic, of course)

Also goes with guys. If you see a person is uncomfortable, give them an out. Be a long-lost friend and help them out.

Among its conclusions, the study stated that "Twitter's data states that 2.8 million unique accounts were reported for abuse of which Twitter actioned 248,000 – approximately 9%. However, the data published only reflects unique accounts that were reported for abuse and actioned. Twitter should also publish the total number of tweets reported for abuse and hateful conduct - disaggregated by category - in order to avoid potentially underplaying the true scale of abuse on the platform."

Once my boss was harrassing an intern by make comments on how nice she looked and that he would love to spend some private time with her. I told him that I'd love to spend some private time with his wife to tell her what a jerk he was. Didn't change him much but at least it changed the way he treated female coworkers.

Why did he need a sandwich made if he had lunch? Though I totally agree with the outcome I'm just feeling a bit confused.

Everyday at work I have a customer that comes and call me names , like : Hey how you doing? Me: Thank you , fine , what about you? Him: you are sooo sexy, Oh my god you are soooo sexy...why don´t you give me your number and we go out? Me: NO thank you He: why not? I can come to your house and we can drink something? Miziii pitziii sexy girl , baby you are looking goooooddd - THIS IS EVERYDAY and I am sooo sick of that. I´m ignoring him when he starts talk to me this way but he don´t stop. AND he has a wife and kids at home. This is so disgusting, he disgusts me! I have no problem with people tell me I am looking good or something but he is doing that in a disgusting way. And when I say he should please stop with this he say´s why? I should take this as a compliment that a man like him is attracted to me......
