Reddit Highlights The Rise Of Women Hating Content On Social Media. Trolls Have Unlocked A New Low!

Instagram and trolls share a very toxic relationship that we have been seeing for ages. Trolls on social media have basically taken it upon themselves to hate on people unnecessarily for posting anything and everything possible. We’ve seen many influential celebrities and personalities getting trolled on the internet. The idea of online trolling has taken a dirty turn, making people fear being themselves on Instagram. With that being said, Redditors feel that the amount of women hating content on Instagram has increased to a point where most women have just stopped putting out their opinions.

No matter how much you wish to keep away from the gender politics of social media, time and again women have been shamed about their decisions and their appearances over Instagram. From calling women ‘Fatherless’ to writing ‘Women (tea emoticon)’ every chance they get, it’s hard to understand what exactly is expected of women. In recent times, social media platforms like Instagram have become a breeding ground for diverse content, ranging from memes and entertainment to serious discussions. In a conversation on a Reddit thread, internet users are now talking about how content that puts down and makes fun of women is increasing. It’s like memes and comments saying bad things about women, making everything about women turn into a joke.

Here’s What Reddit Feels About Women Hating Content On Instagram

Users in the Reddit thread expressed their concerns about the rise of misogynistic content, citing examples such as memes and derogatory remarks that stereotype and demean women. There are phrases like “Ladkiyan to kaat ke chali jaati hai” (girls just cheat and leave), and general ideas that all women cheat and are just after money. The idea of women in the minds of most insecure men has been set up in a certain way. The obsession of men calling women ‘Gold diggers’ is insane. So they also fear financially independent women but are are the first ones to call women gold diggers? Koi sense hai is baat mein?

Influencers And Their Influence

Several users in the thread attribute the increase in such content to popular influencers, suggesting that figures like Bigg Boss OTT 2 winner Youtuber Elvish Yadav and Bigg Boss 17 star Munawar Faruqui have played a role in normalizing and perpetuating derogatory stereotypes about women. The impact of influencers on shaping opinions and attitudes is evident in the comments, with many expressing agreement and sharing their observations.

The Role Of Male-Dominated Spaces

Redditors also highlighted the prevalence of misogynistic content in male-dominated spaces on social media platforms, such as Instagram, Discord, 4chan, and Reddit. They argue that these platforms often become breeding grounds for derogatory content, and the sheer amount of free time among male users contributes to the creation and spread of such harmful narratives. The amount of times we have seen men comment demeaning things on women’s posts without any connection or idea about who it is is insane. Because let’s be honest, handling this kind of demeaning trolling isn’t the biggest issue in women’s lives. We’ve better things to worry about.

How Does This Content Influence Thoughts And Perception?

Participants in the thread talked about the impact of this content on the thoughts and perceptions of their friends and the broader audience. There is concern that the narrative being set is changing the overall view of women, contributing to negative stereotypes and reinforcing harmful attitudes. I mean, constant comments where you are being stereotyped? In 2024? Isn’t it too late for this?

Women Share Their Take On Women Hating Content On Social Media

Female users in the thread share their experiences of encountering offensive content, including blatant sexualization and victim-blaming. The discussion also touches on societal expectations and the unfair judgments women face for expressing personal opinions. I’ve had so many women telling me how they’ve stopped themselves from saying something or posting something on social media because they fear that people would say hateful things. I mean? This is just making me question the whole idea of freedom and how it works.

Counter-Narrative And Positive Spaces

While there’s awareness of some positive content about women, like what influencers like Rida Tharana share, people feel it’s not getting enough attention. They want more good and positive spaces on social media where people can share nice things instead of being mean. I think it’s high time that people get over the idea of trolling being funny, especially when it comes to women and what they post online.

Seriously, if I had a penny for every time I or my friends got unwanted comments online, I’d be rich. It’s ridiculous how some men feel the need to constantly say something to women. Whether it’s online shaming or mansplaining, men have made it their mission to keep women on edge. It used to be just on the streets, but now it’s on social media too. Isn’t it strange? When women seek freedom of speech, they just ask for fair treatment and equal rights. But when men talk about their freedom of speech, they use it as an excuse for saying mean things about women, calling it their ‘opinion’. Misogyny is getting old, honestly.

ICYMI, a recent reel from Hauterrfly’s Bangalore 2 A.M Stories showcasing incidents of eve-teasing also received a series of slut-shaming comments that are nothing short of women hating. It only goes to show the horrors of being an opinionated woman on social media.
