Early today something triggered flashbacks to my childhood sexual abuse from my early childhood. Then some silly doctor who fanboys started posting sexist shit in a group I'm in and I tried to take them on. Then the alt right US fanboys came on line and their bullying and their words triggered me back to my husband. Bad night. Shaking not due to neurological ill health. Anyone around for a chat?

Thank you for your kind thoughts. sorry I'm so long in replying - usual spoon deficit problem. FB got back to me and blocked his account. So sort of result against one troll, at least :)

Middle of the night is an awful time.

Hope you got some sleep and feel a little better now.

I tend to avoid most social media because they allow idiots on there! The internet is great for many things and I spend a lot of time reading some amazing stories, but it is too easy for people to type without thinking or without repercussions. It is difficult to have a reasoned discussion and too frustrating for me.

After I posted this and unfollowed the group and bowed out of all discussion I got a rape threat from one of the US trolls. FB got back to last week to say he had been blocked and the stuff passed on. I'm so glad I reported it.

Irritating thing is I'm not sure how I feel about a female Doctor, I have lots of established science of regeneration questions and serious concerns for trans children and how it will be presented, but they assumed I was pro just because I kept telling people objecting is fine, mostly memes that belittle and attack all women is not. but neither is calling anyone who has genuine reservations sexist and sadly that is happening too. Trolls have no one gender, sadly.

Anyway, I walked away fro my own sanity. If Stephan Moffat's writing and dreadful two dimensional female characters didn't break me, this won't!

Well done for walking away, it is so tempting to keep trying to talk sense into them, but that requires that they also try to understand!
We seem to have lost the art of gracefully disagreeing and proper debate, with polarised opinions and the only options are total agreement or total dissent.

I've been avoiding it in total tbh, although a couple of days ago I managed to watch a couple of interviews with Jodie Whittaker on YT.

We have indeed, and that is dangerous, black and white thinking, the false belief that you must be right, contrary to evidence is much more than in fandoms, its in politics. the world is becoming a scary place :(
