Hey look, another person posting a heavy leaning "article" without fully understanding the whole story. This is such a huge problem on both sides and is so damn misleading. It's really a shame and largely why we are where we're at and why social media and hard leaning media can be so damaging.

Any other articles? Follow up? Its a dumb story about dumb people. Maybe there's more to the story though? How much harassment was going on? Seems both party's are snowflakes and thin-skinned.

Trans is a mental disorder that we now fully embrace. Personally I dont give a fuck about these people but this is when it starts to become a problem.

The "victim" Stephanie Hayden seems to be harassed a lot.

The BASIS of the harassment has little to do with the reported fact that it was ongoing and online. This seems to be far more about HARASSMENT then gender-identification. That particular slant creates a bunch of clicks

Just to play devils advocate, but if the gender issue wasn't present would the police have acted. The reason i say this is that the "victim'' seems to have a penchant for complaining to the police when her feelings get hurt.

Maybe I'm out of touch, but his whole twitter social media thing escapes me. If someone is saying something about you on twitter don't read it, block them or disable your account....but to go running to the police and press (press hard from what I am reading) for charges sounds like school yard shit.

It's almost time for my hot tub soak and rum.....maybe a cohiba too.

You are lucky enough to be insulated from this sort of abuse, although we could make our best efforts here

The numbers of people who DO take it seriously as an affront/bullying, includes those fragile enough that they take drastic measures as a result. Surely you remember how strong general peer pressure could be. Cyberbullying now rises to the level that people are convinced to commit suicide. It's a side of the dark interwebs that many don't fully understand yet.

I'm certainly not saying the lady isn't perpetually offended. I'm simply saying the headline appears to be intentionally downplaying the details in order to spark outrage (and traffic to their website). Sadly, this tactic works, which is why we see these headlines so often.

"Local woman arrested for online harassment" is a lot less sexy. Right?

Even though I don't agree with most of his views (from what I've read about him), reminds me of this....

Vancouver woman suing Twitter for not allowing dead naming Trans people

I know the story shows the complainant in this suit as being a right wing activist but the story seems on point with the thread and it should be interesting to see where this goes.

I have no issue or question that some folks identify as a gender that is different than what they were born. However forcing folks to abide by that decision causes me concern. I'm of the belief live and let live, but if we're going to litigate then a simple DNA test should resolve the fact of sex not gender.

It's so obvious this is all about some sad troll that got arrested for being a troll. And all the trolls here defend that troll because they think trolling is OK. The not troll ppl here think this story is dumb click bait because they aren't trolls and see how dumb it is.

I like how the trolls somehow found a way to insert muslims into this thread, there's no connection here but you can't be a legit troller without throwing that in the mix for no reason...

I think it's kinda cool that they are going after trolls over there, it could be an interesting experiment to see how things play out in 20 years. Is their way better or our way better? This is a good way to find out. Stay tuned for another 20 years lol
