To add to the kilometer-long record of Female-Specific Problems: Stalkers who target women because of their careers.

These scumbags aren't attracted to their victims and don't even know them personally; they harass women holding high-visibility jobs, bent on ruining their reputations and self-perceptions. Included in the Telegraph's story are a Member of Parliament who contemplated resignation after suffering seven years of mental assault, and a philanthropist who was forced to defend her charity when her stalker lodged a complaint.

What's most disturbing of all about this situation? The concern other women might avoid positions that put them in the public eye because they fear being stalked.

I'm Chelsea Peng, the assistant editor at On my tombstone, I would like a GIF of me that's better than the one that already exists on the Internet and a free fro-yo machine. Besides frozen dairy products, I'm into pirates, carbs, Balzac, and snacking so hard I have to go lie down.
