Gay and Bi Men More Often Fall Victim to Cyber Bullying

by our Editors in General , 23 februari 2016

Gay men (5.5%) and bisexual men (4.9%) are more often bullied online than heterosexual men (2.8%). Gays are confronted with online spreading of personal photos, clips or gossip three times as much, at 1.5%, according to a survey by Statistic Netherlands (CBS).

In the category women, there is no difference in victimization on the basis of sexual orientation, but they do fall victim to cyber bullying more often than men.

Women also know their bullier or stalker more often than men. Girls in the age group 15-18 are at risk most. Women also fall victim to slander more often - for example through the spreading of personal photos or clips in social media. More than one in six has been bullied online. On a yearly basis, over 400.000 Dutch people over 15 are confronted by this.

Cyber bullying is also more prevalent among youth, the study reveals. Another risk group are non-western born women. They are confronted with blackmail more often than native-born women. Non-native born women are also more active on social media. In the category men, there is hardly any difference between different origins in the encountered victimisations.

The CBS survey did not provide information on transgenders and cyber bullying.
