"It's Like She's Eager to be Verbally Abused": Twitter, Trolls, and (En)gendering Disciplinary Rhetoric
Commonplaces about feminists, about women’s rights, bodies, and rhetoric participate in a cycle of violence and consciousness-raising. This paper articulates the particular way in which violent anti-feminist engagement in social media functions as disciplinary rhetoric. I contend that the goal of this rhetoric is to silence the women participating in public as feminist.
