Data Sources

The input data for these generators was obtained via the research projects outlined in The Random Rape Threat Generator Origin Story, The Cyberhate Project, and the Methodology pages of this web site. Clementine Ford and Sady Doyle were also generous enough to allow me to include the multiple examples of gendered cyberhate they have assembled here and here. Here, meanwhile, is a selection of some of the other publicly available texts used to source the input data for these generators:
