Net neutrality does not exist. Women are often victims of online sexual harassment and sexist hate speech, particularly those with intersecting identities. Worse still is that this discrimination is programmed into the tech that we love, in the form of a “toxic technoculture”. Recently I decided to build a tool to avoid this abuse and give victims of sexual cyber abuse back their agency, to opt out. The tool comes in the form of a simple browser extension, but I hope that the protection it will eventually provide is extraordinary.
