As long as online feminists allow, or seek to have, these controversies dominate the media's picture of feminism, I think they may also struggle to popularise the sort of close vision or perceptive awareness that they say it takes to see the subtleties of the misogyny underlying various attitudes, tropes, etc. in different cultures. It's a bit like the media giving you an eye test: if you see that these death threats against women are wrong then your vision is just fine.

That probably won't prevent many traffic accidents.
