Vi Hart on shootings, stalkings, and Internetting While Female

Like many youtubers, the incomparable, fast-talking, sharpie-doodling mathematician Vi Hart (previously) was stunned by the Orlando shooting of Christina Grimmie, a Youtube singing star who broke out into the mainstream, and who was murdered by a man who attended her public appearance.

Hours later, she — along with us — learned about the Pulse nightclub shooting.

Now, in a heartfelt, wrenching monologue about being female, queer, and internet famous — featuring screenshots of her stalkers' voluminous emails — Hart nails some emotional truths every bit as nuanced and complex and clear as the mathematical lectures she's so beloved for.
