Synchronized randomness.

There’s been a lot of buzz in Sweden lately, because of a documentary recently showed on tv about “internet hate”. It’s about female journalists, feminists, tv personalities, bloggers, and the hate mails that they are receiving. Often threats about murder, rape and the most terrifying sexual assaults you could imagine.
I don’t know what my point with this post is. I just don’t understand how anyone can do such a thing to someone. How anyone can be so ANGRY at someone they don’t even know, because of something they write? How can someone elses opinion affect them SO MUCH? HELLO? AGREE TO DISAGREE?
I really don’t understand. Of course men are over-represented in all this. I’m ashamed of our society. That people actually could think it’s okey to write a letter/mail to someone that they wanna rape them, cut them into pieces and fry their boobs and eat them or someone similarly horrible. You could think that the person writing this must be sick. But it’s so common. All these bastards can’t be “sick”. I mean it must be just regular people, who are really really angry. Gah. I don’t know. I’m just baffled.
