I had a really amazing experience today on Google+. In the comments of the post where I announced I wanted to have a hangout later in the day to discuss how people use Google+ Profiles, someone said "Dear Frances, I'd like to request a more intimate hangout with you. Thanks. :)" and another Google+ user ( ) commented back to the original poster and publicly said "That's highly inappropriate...". Which was awesome.
Many men don't appreciate how many seemingly civil places on the internet degrade mystifyingly fast into really hostile places for women. Prominent women bloggers frequently get sexual comments on their posts or even threats against their physical safety. I felt so incredibly proud for the Google+ community when I saw James prompting to the poster that it wasn't appropriate to say something like that about me.
Would this have happened in a place that didn't try to encourage people to interact like they would if they were talking face to face? In place that didn't associate people's names with what they said? Who knows. All I do know is there was clearly a sense of "this is a place where civility manners" because others were willing to speak up and make it a place where I could be comfortable being me.
And for that, I <3 you Google+ users!
