Everyday Victim Blaming, an online project “set up to challenge the blame culture associated with domestic and sexual violence, rape and abuse against women and children,” is now being used to harass lesbians and feminists with a critical view of gender. This signals mission drift, a concerted effort to silence dissenting voices, or the fact that transwomen have appropriated the original project for their own agenda.
