This is a deflection. No one here (as far as I’m aware) has even hinted at support for de-platforming, social media attacks, harassment, or anything similar, and at least some of us have been actively involved in struggles for women’s rights for many years. But all of the evidence offered by Whitmore et al — as unfortunate and even objectionable as some the reported behaviour may be — is still essentially anecdotal, and there’s been no acknowledgment at all of the overwhelming *statistical* counter-evidence. So this is just a continuation of the argument-from-moral-panic, with a dollop of ad hominem and identitarian moral policing thrown in for rhetorical good measure.
