Yeah, her brother is one of my best friends.
I'm not sure how she's taking the news, no one has talked to her yet. When I talked to her brother he said he found out on facebook.
Her immediate peers aren't that sexist because she's in better shape then most of them. She's a distance runner and top of her class, so it's really hard to talk smack to a girl who beats you on physical tests. She's the type to make things sound easy, so she might be downplaying what she deals with. When she told me she was doing this she left out most of the changing the world part and just said she was going for ranger training. She made it sound like anyone would do it, no biggie.
Honestly I'm handling the sexism worse then her right now. I found a post about her on r/theredpill (a very sexist subreddit) and for the first time in my life was very tempted to doxx someone and go full black hat. I'm a little horrified at the Internet she is coming back to and I'm not handling it well. How do you protect the people you love from the internet?
