At the University of Wyoming (UW), feminist activist Meg Lanker-Simons was well regarded as a blogger and radio host. But now, she’s regarded by police as a criminal after she allegedly faked a Facebook posting threatening a rape against her. The posting read: “I want to hate f**k Meg Lanker-Simons so hard. That chick that runs her liberal mouth all the time and doesn’t care who knows it. I think its hot and it makes me angry. One night with me and shes gonna be a good Republican bitch.” Lanker-Simons then commented on the post and posted it to her own blog, labeling it “disgusting, misogynistic, and apparently something the admins of this page think is a perfectly acceptable sentiment.”
She then added, “Instead of focusing on how angry and turned on me ‘running my mouth’ makes you, perhaps you should listen instead. You might learn something.”
Unfortunately for Lanker-Simons, the police were called in. She was then cited after admitting “to making a controversial post on UW Crushes webpage and then [lying] about not doing it.” The University of Wyoming said the Facebook post came from her computer, according to police.
