No one is saying men don't also get harassed online. 

But women are definitely disproportionately targeted by online harassment. They also often are the targets of misognyistic comments, sexual harassment, threats of violence, and threats of sexual violence. 

Trying to address this issue shouldn't be controversial. 


"Overall, men are somewhat more likely than women to experience at least one of the elements of online harassment, 44% vs. 37%. In terms of specific experiences, men are more likely than women to encounter name-calling, embarrassment, and physical threats."
