Interesting and sobering article about the consequences of online shaming. The person who shared this had some interesting things to say about it. How we underestimate the impact this can have. Also how we often aren't really doing anything about the systemic problems we claim to care about, instead we're just relishing the cheap, thrilling, but often empty victory. And they mentioned how there is often a component of sexism in shaming, where female "offenders" often get treated much worse than male ones (and also how there is a sexist slant to the criticisms in those situations, e.g., lots of "bitch" comments and the like).
