Logan Lynn Opens Up About Online Abuse and Harassment in People Magazine This Week

“It’s been my experience that nothing triggers this type of toxic masculinity culture more than a gay man who isn’t afraid,” Lynn says, “and I can’t think of anything I am less afraid of than a bunch of fragile dudes who can’t deal with my existence.”

…and here’s some backstory:

Back when all of this super intense homophobic trolling started up again a few months ago, it was worse than ever before. Since my time on TV back in the early days of Logo I’ve been a target of this disturbing trash, but I’ve always found ways of using it as a motivator, and it has fueled my queer activism.

A lot of it has turned scarier than usual since the last election when I put out that Satanic puppet video where I put Donald Trump in jail (where he belongs), but this past January I finally made a deal with myself (and my mom) that I was just never going to look at what poison strangers are saying about me ever again — not even for the sake of comedy or advocacy — and I haven’t.

Anyone who follows me has watched me spend years taking screenshots and mocking the truly endless hate I get as a punchline, but I’m fucking tired and homophobia has completely lost its charm. Even with a team of people working with me on managing it all, the bigotry is still painful, and the content of the trolling is so twisted and personally triggering, it can be really hard to find a punchline.

Whether you are a 24 year old comic in Portland attempting to make a name for yourself by publicly dragging mine through the mud, or you don’t like someone famous that I’m connected to, or you are an Evangelical murderer who wants to burn my house down because you hate gay people, or you are one of the 26,000 MAGA dudes who listen to the Opie and Anthony Radio show and insist on creating and distributing violent memes about me, or you are just mad because you think my songs suck, I really, truly have stopped caring. I literally CAN’T care, and haven’t cared for some time.

This is what wellness looks like in 2019: Blocking your own name on the internet. Read the rest of this entry »

Feature Story on Logan Lynn, Online Harassment and Anti-LGBT Bullying in Gay Star News

Gay Star News picked up this story about Reddit’s irresponsible corporate practices and everything that’s been happening with me by way of their shitty, abuse-supporting platform lately.

Logan Lynn, Online Bullying and Harassment Featured Today on Towleroad Blog

Thank you to Andy Towle for helping get the word out on Towleroad about what’s been happening with all of this insane homophobia and online abuse.

This shit is wild, and I feel like people have no idea how complicit Reddit is in perpetuating hate and violence against queer and trans people. Make no mistake: THIS IS THEIR BUSINESS MODEL.

When I was a kid and bullies would call me a fag, knock my books out of my hands, or slam my head into the lockers, I always kicked, screamed, and fought back — even if it meant that I was suspended from school or got my ass kicked worse.‬

‪AND I HAVEN’T CHANGED A BIT. 🌈✊❤️‬
