Online humor targeting women on Turkish digital media platforms : An intersectional approach to digital violence

This article examines online violence disguised as humor on Turkish digital media plat-
forms. Online conversations from Sour Dictionary , a pioneer dictionary platform, reveal how class,
politics and gender inequalities intersect to reproduce power relations in digital media against non
paid domestic workers (housewives) being visible in Facebook . Drawing from the theoretical
framework of intersectionality, the study shows that women are exposed to violence not just
through the category of gender, while at th e same time, the criticism and the violence interchange
dynamically through the instrument of humor.
