Adapted summary: “Rape threats online are just the digital version of pervasive street harassment,” said Soroya Chemaly, a blogger and activist on issues regarding gender, hate crimes and misogyny. She added that “It seems to me that boys behaving this way is only more apparent because of the nature of the Internet.” In some cases, she could find the young man’s mother’s contact information by reviewing their Facebook profile. As the above tweet demonstrates, she’s had at least one successful case where the mom has agreed to speak with her son. Sexual harassment often starts at an early age and -- for young men engaged in that activity -- there are intervention strategies that can sometimes help re-direct and rehabilitate the young man. While sexual harassment, including rape threats, is never OK, one should not assume that the person committing the harassment is beyond redemption, especially if they are young.
