Up the sisterhood? Solidarity forever? Beyond question, at the appropriate juncture, in due course, in the fullness of time? Up to a point?

We’re not going to name her because she’s too sensible to do the victim act, but for most of the month a Melbourne member of the media has been hammered by the vilest abuse on Twitter — death threats down — for simply doing her job.

It happened again today.

If you’re anything other than borderline psychotic, you usually want to delete the app and have a half-hour shower after even catching a whiff of the cesspool that is Twitter, but this truly proves that it’s not only vile, but a looking glass world.

Yes. We’re taking their remarks as literal. After all their constant carry-on like teenagers with Tourettes it’s not as if you could ever say the Witches have the slightest concept of irony, let alone touch.

They’re more into bludgeoning with a brick. Bludgeoning other women too — or so it appears.

Perhaps they should slightly rearrange their epithet. Not Mad Fucking Witches, but Fucking Mad.
