it’s tough to be a girl on the internet

November 9, 2015

 

So I’m traipsing around the internet catching up on posts and whatnot and I find two posts under my IMDB profile. Which is surprising since it’s hard to find my IMDB profile in the first place unless you are seriously looking. [Dear IMDB, I’m sorry I won’t pay you money for a pro membership, but really, I should actually show up in a search since I am a produced screenwriter. Sigh.]

One of the posts is really nice about the book and I’d respond to Glen if I didn’t have to give IMDB my phone number or a credit card number to do it. Which I won’t do but, Glen, thanks, that was really nice, if you are out there. Write an Amazon review!

The other post says my picture should be next to “bitch” in the dictionary.

Jeezu.

Also there’s a post above that was deleted so apparently was so nasty even the IMDB people pulled it.

Here’s the screenshot:

 

bitch?

 

I was talking to a guy I know at Austin Film Festival and he was saying there’s a Facebook group that is all cool and whatnot and he’d invite me and then I heard the names of the guys running the show. And just said, No, that’s a boy’s club, if I go in there I’ll just get attacked every time I talk.

This is an ongoing thing on the internet. If I talk, my picture should go under “bitch” in the dictionary. If I write a book, my name should go under “bitch” in the dictionary. If I have a website, my picture should go under “bitch” in the dictionary. If I share information, my picture should go under “bitch” in the dictionary…

It’s an ongoing thing. It’s exhausting. And if I try to defend myself? Wholly fucking cats, then my picture should really go next to “bitch” in the dictionary. Because well how dare I, someone with a vagina, even try to defend myself?
