Speaking of Nice Guys™

Check this out from PassiveAgressiveNotes.com:

k, so court in michigan met this guy out at a bar. he seemed harmless enough, but court knew right he wasn’t her type. still, she didn’t have the heart to give him a flat-out “no” when he asked for her number. (she couldn’t give him a fake one, either, ’cause he the did the “dial his number into the phone and call” thing.)
says court: “the first time he called, i talked to him and decided right then i definitely wasn’t interested.” by the end of the conversation, she figured he’d gotten the message…but then he kept calling. and then, texting. when she didn’t respond, court says, “i assumed he’d take the hint…but i’m ...

Women’s rights advocate killed by a stalker

I’ve been following the horrible news about Johanna Justin-Jinich, a woman at Wesleyan University who was recently shot by a man who was stalking her. The man who allegedly killed her, Stephen Morgan, had been stalking her for quite some time. (It seems he had some anti-semitic motivations as well.) This story is harrowing:

As the investigation unfolded, the police focused on the only known point of connection between the victim and the assailant. It was a six-week summer program, in June and July 2007, at New York University, called Sexual Diversity in Society. [...]
The two lived in student housing, but not in the same residence hall, said John Beckman, an N.Y.U. spokesman. On July 17, as the program ...

Black Woman Murdered by Stalker Who Had Been Using Youtube and Facebook To Threaten Her.


*Trigger Warning*
A young woman in Detroit, Asia McGowan, was shot and killed by someone who had been leaving her nasty comments on her Youtube account and also had been stalking her on Facebook. This was someone she knew in real life-it was one of her classmates.
This story is really upsetting me, but I am trying to keep my head straight about the issues at hand. It is stressing me out for two reasons. One, almost every woman I know that has an internet identity has received some sort of threatening, stalker-ish, troll-ish email, comment, forum posting, death threat, blog post or shit even a vlog. This story is chilling and it is important to remember ...

Fox News Producers Stalk and Harass Amanda Terkel.

In light of Bill O’Reilly’s upcoming speaking gig with the Alexa Foundation, an organization that supports the rights of victims of sexual violence, Amanda Terkel at Think Progress exposed O’Reilly’s victim-blaming past. In the past O’Relly asserted that the rape and murder of a woman was partially her own fault based on what she was wearing. Strange that Bill O would be speaking at Alexa.
This odd match becomes more apparent because due to the frustration by the O’Reilly camp, Terkel was stalked and harassed by the producers of Fox News. In her own words, Terkel writes,

This weekend, while on vacation, I was ambushed by O’Reilly’s top hit man, producer Jesse Watters, who accosted me on the street ...

Marketing to stalkers

Apparently LG is trying to appeal to dudes who like to use their cellphone as a stalking device. (How convenient! A phone for men who don’t want to bother with Maxim’s DIY stalker tips.) Engaget calls this ad “creepy” and “early-90s softcore voodoo porn.” I say it’s stalkerrific:

Ugh. Hey, buddy! That’s your mom calling to remind you that stalking is illegal. Real women don’t appreciate strange dudes standing outside their window and recording them on a cameraphone.
(Thanks to Courtney’s pal Christopher for the link.)
