How to fight the assholes?

Recently I saw the article of VM Brasseur No, I will not "lighten up" and posted in on Reddit.

The immediate reaction was ranging between plain stupid to straight out misogynist.

Frankly I don't know how to fight these assholes. I keep swinging between "calling them out" as VM did, to disregarding them "not to feed the troll".

I guess, instead of continuing this rant, let me just try to build more things that will empower women, minorities and people who are being attacked in general.

Pay By Karma

At least once a day some ask me for free help. They usually send me an e-mail telling me the "found me on the Internet", in many cases the call me "Sir", but the fact remains the same, they ask me for free help.

They don't offer anything in return. Not money, not public recognition, and sometime not even a "thank you".

Just thinking aloud.

The problem is big, though it does not seem to be very sophisticated.
