Girl on the Net

Girl on the Net

Speaker

Girl on the Net has been blogging for four years about sex and feminism. In that time she’s been called a ‘bitch’ more
times than she cares to mention, had a fairly large emotional breakdown, and received numerous emails
from enthusiastic fans who have threatened to ‘come and find’ her.
Despite this, she maintain a relentlessly cheery outlook, with only occasional breaks to weep copiously
in the dark. It’s partly because she has developed a few strategies for dealing with negative feedback,
and have some rules of engagement that help stave off the worst negativity in blog comments and
online discussion, so that the better stuff rises to the top.
