A woman with one leghas been targeted by vile trolls

Cherie, from Melbourne, participated in a harmless game on Twitter asking people to state their age and 'something they can't do'.
The 27-year-old told her 2,400 followers she 'can't cross her legs'.
When asked why she couldn't cross her limbs, she shared an image of herself standing in front of a mirror with crutches.
The snap showed she was missing her right leg but it sparked a flurry of sick responses, mostly from men.
Some of the vile comments included how it would be 'less effort to rape her', with one man saying she could borrow their 'third leg' - a reference to his pe nis.

There were also hundreds of comments rating her face and chest, with her legs attracting a score of '1/2'.
There were also disgusting comments from people wondering how she engaged in certain sexual positions.
'The internet can be a disgusting place,' Cherie said in response.

One man suggested she should have expected the reaction because she posted 'something sexy and half naked' to the internet despite being fully clothed.
Cherie had her leg amputated when she was six years old after being diagnosed with bone cancer osteosarcoma.

'I think I'm just disappointed that I couldn't make a lighthearted joke without it turning into a barrage of men commenting whether or not they'd have s*ex with me,' Cherie told FEMAIL.
'That some think it's a compliment that they would still be interested in me even though I'm disabled, as though that should be some kind of deal-breaker.
'And that I would even get comments saying how it would be easy to rape me because of my disability.'
Cherie, originally from New Zealand, states in her Twitter biography that she had an 'external hemipelvectomy' - an amputation from the pelvis - and is a fierce advocate for accessibility.

Cherie said she was not naive in thinking the post would not attract any crude comments but she was frustrated by the sheer amount of negativity.
The post from October 27 has since been retweeted 9,300 times.
'I guess just the sheer volume that I received was surprising, usually you may expect a few, but not hundreds,' she said.
'And most of these weren't hiding behind faceless troll accounts. They'd have very obvious identities and be very comfortable with tagging their other friends, and me, in what they were saying.
'None of this is new, I've had comments like these all my life. And not just on the internet. Men on the streets have come up to me and said all of these things before.
'But just because I'm used to it, and don't get upset about it, doesn't mean I understand it.'

This woman very nice, and i hope she find a real man for relationship and true love feelings, too.


Можно быть похитрей и посдержанней
(Нынче модно ходить в холуях),
Называть дурака проповедником
И топить свою совесть в рублях.
