The UK government has created an anti-trolling service that instructs the victims of online abuse on how to report the problem and where to seek help.
The Stop Online Abuse site is focused on women and lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people, who have suffered the most extreme online abuse since the appearance of the social media. The website explains how to identify abuse and get the offensive content removed.
The website in question offers help to people who suffer from harassment, revenge porn, hate speech and blackmail on the Internet, providing the victims with legal advice and practical tips on how to treat such comments. The site covers various forms of online abuse, from trolling to doxxing and cyberstalking.
The service sets out the line between free speech and abuse and explains that someone’s right to expression is limited with another person’s right not to be abused. One of the site’s sections is devoted to tackling online sexism, mostly in regard to women, where online abuse is the frequent use of threats of sexual violence and derogatory comments about their appearance and bodies.
The Stop Online Abuse website was created by the UK government following the research of online abuse experienced by women and LGBT people: for example, 23% of LGBT pupils experienced cyberbullying, while 5% of LGBT adults had been the target of online homophobic abuse or behavior.
Caroline Criado-Perez received death threats online after her campaign to get the face of a woman on a bank note. The campaigner welcomed the initiative, recognizing that there had been huge improvements in reporting abuse on some online services after she raised awareness of the problem. The writer added that at the time she didn’t know it was a police matter, or how to report it to the police.
Nicky Morgan, the minister for women and equalities, also appreciated the website, saying that it would provide practical advice for people on how to recognize abuse and what steps to take to get offensive content removed. Finally, Nik Noone, the representative of the LGBT anti-hate crime charity, revealed that over 1 million people in the United Kingdom annually face online abuse. The charity evidences an increasing trend, the impact of which can have far-reaching consequences. This is why the new website may ensure protection from harassment and abuse against women and LGBT people in the online world.
