Understanding Online Serophobia
To mark World AIDS Day, we’ve partnered with Brandwatch to analyse 239 thousand online conversations globally to understand how serophobia has evolved online between 2019 and 2021. The report examines how hate speech targeting people living with HIV and AIDS online has changed since the pandemic began, where the conversation about serophobia is happening globally, and how advocacy efforts have helped.
Uncovered: Online Hate Speech in the Covid Era
We looked at 263 million online conversations around hate speech online to see how it has changed since the start of the pandemic. We looked at social media, forums and blogs to see how racism and other topics have evolved between 2019 & 2021. Unfortunately, sparked by celebrity comments and attacks, we have seen a devastating surge in internet-based hate speech in this time period.
The Wireless Report 2021
The Wireless Report is one of the UK’s most comprehensive reports into the ways in which young people aged 13-25 are currently using smartphone technology.
This report gives valuable insight into not just how young people engage with the internet and social media, but illustrates its mental health impact and what young people wish would be done differently by social media platforms.
The Annual Bullying Survey 2020
The Annual Bullying Survey is our flagship study of bullying and associated behaviours, produced in collaboration with schools and colleges from across the United Kingdom on an annual basis. 2020 is our 8th edition and this year, we delve deeper into the mental wellbeing of 13,000 young people; exploring issues such as loneliness, poor mental health and revealing the biggest contributors to issues such as depression and anxiety in young people.
The Annual Bullying Surveys
The Annual Bullying Survey is our flagship study of bullying and associated behaviours, produced in collaboration with schools and colleges from across the United Kingdom on an annual basis. 50% of our survey features the same questions so that we are able to measure long-term trends and shifts in behaviours and attitudes. We reserve the remaining 50% for research on a specific topic.
Exposed: The Scale of Transphobia Online
Did you know that each minute in the UK and US, 8 transphobic posts are published online? Ranging from insults and harassment to calls for the genocide of transgender people and their allies. At Ditch the Label, we’ve become increasingly alarmed at the climate of online hate, with a particular emphasis on transphobia, so we felt compelled to act.
In the first major report of its kind, we worked with Habbo to explore the nature and extent of bullying within online gaming environments. We believe that everybody should have freedom of expression wherever they socialise and spend their time – regardless as to whether or not it is online or offline.
What 12 Million Conversations About Mental Health Teach Us
Working with Brandwatch has given us a unique opportunity to analyse 12.9 million conversations surrounding mental health in the United Kingdom across a period of four years. We are jointly passionate about understanding the current climate and narrative of mental health and collectively will be using this research to influence culture – not just internally within our own organisations, but globally.
The purpose of this research is to explore the attitudes that society has towards those who wear makeup; exploring the extent to which pejorative attitudes exist. The campaign from Sleek MakeUP, My face. My rules. has been created to positively recognise and stand up for everyone’s right to define their individual beauty, without boundaries. It is a celebration of individualism and uniqueness, with a true love for makeup at its core.
The Valentine Study
In the mainstream, sexuality is seen as a binary construct but our latest research proposes a new fluidity scale – as young people increasingly move away from labels. Our research of over 1,000 also explores the impact of technology on modern relationships and the exploration of sexuality.
Cyberbullying and Hate Speech
people experience racist, homophobic and transphobic insults online? When are people most likely to experience abuse? These are some of the questions that we have answered in our latest report, Cyberbullying and Hate Speech. Produced in collaboration with Brandwatch, we analysed 19 million Tweets over a 4-year period to produce this cutting edge report.
Masculinity and Misogyny in the Digital Age
What does it mean to be a man? Who are the biggest culprits of misogynistic language? What are some of the current challenges that modern men face? These are some of the questions that we have answered in our latest report, Masculinity and Misogyny in the Digital Age. Produced in collaboration with Brandwatch, we analysed 19 million Tweets over a 4-year period to produce this cutting edge report.
The Gender Report 2016
This research covers the topic of gender and how it can enable and disable young people aged 13-25 throughout the United Kingdom and internationally. We were particularly interested in the definition of gender, gender roles and the bullying and discrimination young people experience as a result of not conforming to societal standards.
