Sep 11 - Trolls tell woman she's 'too ugly' to post pictures

If you've been on the Internet for longer than a few minutes, you'll know just how hurtful some people can be when they're hiding behind a screen. This is something that Melissa Blake, a disabled journalist and blogger, knows all too well. Blake, who writes about everything from relationships to her disability, is exposed to Internet trolls on a daily basis.

One of Blake's columns was recently mentioned on a conservative YouTube channel. Unsurprisingly, the appearance came with plenty of hate from commenters. Blake took to Twitter to share screenshots of some of the meanest comments. She wrote on Twitter: "Reminder that this is what it's like to be a disabled woman writer on the internet AND #ThisIsAmerica in 2019."

And yes, it is pretty ironic that none of the people making these mean comments are brave enough to use their actual faces as their profile pictures. But Blake doesn't seem to be letting the trolls get to her.

About a month after Blake posted those screenshots, she took to Twitter again to show that she hadn't been deterred. "During the last round of trollgate," she wrote in a tweet, "people said that I should be banned from posting photos of myself because I'm too ugly. So I'd just like to commemorate the occasion with these three selfies."


Blake's tweet included three beautiful selfies, which quickly went viral. As of the time of writing, Blake's selfies have picked up over 22,000 retweets and 250,000 likes. Alongside those were thousands of positive comments encouraging Blake to ignore the trolls and keep k*lling it.

When Melissa first spotted the mean comments by the tolls, she wrote on her blog: "The dig at my journalism credentials doesn't bother me, but you know what?? I'm getting so tired of people (read: men) thinking it's OK to insult a woman's appearance. Yes, my disability makes me look different. Trust me, I know that. I've known that my entire life."

"And people wonder why I've struggled so much with self-acceptance when it comes to how I look and our society's notion of what 'beautiful' is," she continued. "It's because of comments like these comments that dismiss me and deem me unworthy. This is just one more example of the type of ableism that people with disabilities face every day and it's something I'm constantly trying to change."

Evidently, there's far more accepting and loving people out there than the bad. One Twitter user explained: "The only ugly people are the ones that are trying to put you down. Ignore the haters, I can see youre rising above which is good to see. Post as many selfies as you like."

People take every opportunity they can to sh*t on someone (they don't know) in order to get some likes. It's a sick culture we live in right now. Really sick.

I'm all for cracking jokes back and forth, or roasting someone you're close to, but this type of stuff is just mean for no reason.

Folks are INCAPABLE of keeping their negative thoughts to themselves anymore.

Very true. Like, how much short lived joy does one get by making fun of someone they don't know AT ALL.

neurologically speaking the perpetrators of trolling have conditioned/been conditioned for quick dopamine hits. like 10-20 a day... its the equivalent of stopping at the gas station and putting in whatever loose change you have in your car.

The reasoning behind it.

is complex.

They dont have much more to strive for than that though. Laughter is a dopamine release.... and if nothing about your life is funny... you're going to seek out anything you can get and likely get hooked to it... Trolling didn't exist until the internet... it's escapism for people with no accountabilty



The internet is a breeding ground for non-developed enjoyment.

because it's more important for you to know about this story than it is of remembering 9/11 or that vaping is now illegal

Who cares about a bunch of anime avy peeps calling someone actually brave enough to show their face ugly.

You know every last one of them trolls ugly too - why you think out of the 100 bad comments none have pictures? hell most ppl ugly its not a big deal. When you actually nice to look at is when you standout. Chin up cowpokes
