I never thought that I’d talk about furries, but here I am. These… Degenerates… Have launched (and successfully) carried out a harassment campaign against a legendary NASA engineer and author – Homer Hickam – driving him from Twitter and forcing him to delete his blog. He politely reminded a furry named “Naomi” who had just received an internship at NASA that she had to watch her language. This caused her to respond “Suck my dick and balls I work at #NASA”. His retort? “I work on the council that oversees NASA.” She lost the internship, not because she was being a shit to somebody in the industry, but because NASA got wind of the exchange (through their hashtag). Hickam chose to come to her aid, and tried to get her a better or equally prestigious position.
However, before this “community” knew all the facts, they started to dogpile Hickam:
What I think is interesting is that since this was an old white man being driven off the internet is strangely silent. Just some food for thought.
