    http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show....php?t=4120457Doesn't hurt to see if there's already a thread

    Sorry mate, I didn't see it on the front page of News and Current affairs so I kind of assumed no one had posted it.

    Mods should be able to merge mine with yours(?)

    I really don't find it strange, in my experience it's more common to hear girls call each other ****s and whores

    Also women are statistically less likely to receive abusive messages online than men, according to Pew research. But of course, the narrative is always "poor women, life is so much harder for them on the web. They're the main victims. Men are so awful." Most cyberbullying is committed by girls against other girls, too.

    This is very much my experience too.
    Hardly surprising though is it. Most lads are more than happy to make the acquaintance of a ****s or whores whereas for most girls ****s and whores are giving away their most attractive asset (to lads) for free.
