They came at me via email, Twitter, Facebook, telephone and the U.S. Postal Service, attacking my looks, intelligence and parenting skills. They suggested multiple ways my child could be killed other than by guns and liberally used the f-word, b-word and c-word (at least once misspelled with a k) for emphasis. "Special kind of stupid" was a favorite put down (though I kind of liked "trollop" — you just don't hear that much anymore), as was questioning whether I was on my period (Hey Trump fans!).
