Someone tried to doxx http://karamazov1989.wordpress.com/. What a shame, I really liked that site, despite Christian fundamentalism and anti-tattoo stuff. I have tattoos, but I like it when someone rips apart delusions or knocks chronically offended people with too much self-esteem down a peg. Even if he gets doxxed, the right people were hurt. If one’s feelings got hurt by an anonymous blogger and one doxxes him, such a person gets no sympathy from me. The right response is to either not care, or challenge their opinion, not to silence them. People act like one blogger with a handful of readers has a profound effect on their lives! It also happened on Vox’s site, where women’s hair length was discussed. He said men often don’t find short hair that hot on a woman. Many responses were angry, in the vein of “don’t fucking tell me what to do”, “women don’t live for YOU men”, and
“See, the thing is, your article just makes me WANT to cut all my hair off.If that’s a promise that it’s going to put guys like you off attempting to get me in to bed?Well hand me the clippers and goodbye Goldilocks!”
See? A single blog post can so profoundly cripple someone’s personal agency, that they will do something major to themselves because their emotional response to it was so great. But it’s a sign of internal instability and an adult shouldn’t be acting like that.
Having said, I wish everyone would just doxx themselves to the best of their possibility and render this technique useless. Bend the world to your will, rather than bending to the world.
