Stop saying the Threat was a Hoax

I really need people to stop saying that a “Threat was a Hoax”.

The threat was real, no threat is a hoax.

A threat is when one person/group targets another with the intention to intimidate or coerce them. The targeting happened. And whether photos or acts of violence were released or committed or not, the threat was real.

Emma Watson had a group or person choose to attempt to intimidate or coerce her. Don’t minimize that a woman was the target of intimidation and coercion designed to punish her for speaking her mind. And no one would threaten a man this way – which just proves her point.
