There are females among the assaulters too because misogyny is the one thing that truly is gender-neutral.
“Presstitute”, that insult of choice online, is a gendered smear, no matter which way you slice it.
I have been called a whore, a ‘randi’, ‘c***”, bitch and ‘presstitute” on Twitter and other social media platforms so often that now I barely notice it.
