Her article re stalkers and trolls is horrifying

Jean, if you are reading, I think you are wonderful for starting the petition for the Ched Evans' complainant and for all the work you have done. Please know that I am thinking of you. Stay strong

Xenophile Sat 29-Oct-16 13:33:56

She is a wonderful woman, I'll let her know how you feel, thank you!

Bloody hell, it's disgusting that some men will go to these lengths to abuse women that they don't even know based entirley on the fact that they have the cheek to have a voice, an opinion, and a feminist one at that.
I'm pleased we have women like Jean who won't be silenced.
Sorry you had to leave twitter Jean, you don't deserve this shit. There are a lot of women behind you, we support you x

Can anyone tell me if it actually not possible to identify someone from their social media accounts or whether to do so is just a breach of rights ?

Datun Sat 29-Oct-16 13:42:51

And yes, thank you Jean. Your updates on the go fund me page were moving and strong.

Terrible, terrible to read that.

She - and all those who stand up to these shits - are awesome.

ChocChocPorridge Sat 29-Oct-16 13:49:51

Jean (or Ms. Hatchet - since well, I don't know you and you have enough men crossing the line, without women doing it too), I'm sorry you have to put up with this. I hope the CPS can get it together and prosecute a man who is clearly a danger to women.

I hadn't donated yet, but I have now, on the back of that article.

Bon Chance.

ChocChocPorridge Sat 29-Oct-16 13:51:52

Bah. Foreign language fail... that's what I get for posting enraged.

venusinscorpio Sat 29-Oct-16 13:58:47

Jean, thank you so so much for what you do and what you have done with the gofundme for the victim in the Ched Evans case. It's incredibly brave. I am looking forward to donating on Monday when I get paid.

I am sorry you have had to leave twitter due to the actions of misogynist bullies.

SpeakNoWords Sat 29-Oct-16 14:19:26

Thank you, Jean, for being stronger than me and being able to take action in the face of these vile misogynists. You are a hero to me.

Xenophile Sat 29-Oct-16 14:45:39

Datun, doxing depending on what information is released can be a crime, unpleasant or extremely dangerous to the person who has been doxed. Is that what you meant?

HillaryFTW Sat 29-Oct-16 14:50:18

I think Datun meant can twitter tell the police who the wrong doers are...?

Thanks Jean.

Datun Sat 29-Oct-16 15:03:32

Hillary's right.

Can the police identify Jean's trolls? And if so, why wouldn't they?

Cockblocktopus Sat 29-Oct-16 15:31:39

That article. shock

Why, why do men hate women so much?

flowers for Jean. Keep your chin high.

FreshwaterSelkie Sat 29-Oct-16 16:33:47

That article is chilling.

We're behind you, Jean. The world needs more like you.

Xenophile Sat 29-Oct-16 17:35:56

They can and they sometimes do, but the enormous number of them right now is worrying.

OrdinaryGirl Sat 29-Oct-16 17:42:17

I love Jean's campaign! Her updates have been so touching and warm-hearted. Xenophile if you are in contact with her please do pass on my warmest wishes and tell her she is held in^^ high regard.
So sorry for the egregious behaviour from some of the obviously very disturbed seventh circle of the internet. She deserves better - lovely pies and cashmere socks and a sedan chair.

Going to brave reading the article now.

OrdinaryGirl Sat 29-Oct-16 18:46:48

Oh goodness. That was worse than I could have imagined.sad

MidLifeCrunch Sat 29-Oct-16 18:53:03

I support you Jean Hatchett

BigChocFrenzy Sat 29-Oct-16 21:00:33

You are a great feminist hero, Jean
So sorry to hear about the horrific harassment you have suffered, especially from your main stalker

Thank you so much for fighting to support vulnerable women flowers

I just don't understand why these men are so full of hatred and bile towards someone they have never met. I almost feel sorry for them and their sad little lives. Then I remember their victims and I just feel disgust towards the trolls.

I support you, Jean Hatchett.

I'm aghast, of course, at the nastiness of the 2-year troll. I think any sane person would be! But I also have to wonder, what kind of a shit spends so much time doing that? Does he not have a job, friends, family, anything to otherwise occupy him?

And such long-term dedication to making one woman's life hell (or trying to - I adore Jean her resilience). (I'm assuming just her, because if he stalks further women, again, where the hell does he get the time?!?!?...)

I was just re-reading Thud. And just got past a part (mind, Pratchett says it often): if they want to kill you, you're doing something right.

LyndaNotLinda Sun 30-Oct-16 11:12:26

I'm so sorry you're getting all this misogynist bile thrown at your and your daughter Jean. It's absolutely despicable and it terrifies me how much some men hate women.

You are a brave woman and an inspiration to the rest of us. Thank you flowers

I support you too Jean.

You are an inspiration.
