Exactly! And it's been really, really great to see how many men (or, rather, people with male-sounding names) have been taking on the job of pushing back against the Women Are Too Sensitive commenters; the conversation has shifted away from being (mostly) Men vs (mostly) Women and more towards Everyone vs Assturds. In most of the posts I've read this week, the comments have been surprisingly less full of fail than they usually are: the assturds are still there, but they are not dropping their turds unchallenged.

It still sucks that the incidents happen in the first place, but the responses have definitely felt like we've shifted that boulder a little further up the hill, if you know what I mean.
