Nobody should have to put up with that kind of abuse or bullying, but to think that this has possibly been directed at Kathy simply because she is a woman with an opinion, absolutely horrifies me.
It is inevitable, that by keeping a blog and putting your opinion out there that there will always be people who disagree with you. There will also always be people who may not like you, or you them.
Everyone is entitled to an opinion, but it is just that, an opinion.
If I was to put something on here that somebody believed to be factually incorrect, then I would expect it to be questioned/challenged/debated - in an adult fashion.
If somebody had a negative opinion about me or the blog because they didn't like me, or my opinion, or the fact that I'm female, or the fact that I have blonde hair (or any other thing from a list of which I'm sure there are many) then quite simply don't read my blog.
Go and find somewhere else to vent your negative energy.
To think that this kind of bullying behaviour has been carried out by an adult, and not some primary school kid, is disgusting.
In fact that makes it worse as the threats are of a violent and sexual nature, and not just having your hair pulled in the playground.
I hope that Kathy has the strength and support to overcome this, and that they find out who was behind it.
