The Internet can be a great place, but it can also be a terrible place for women.
Emily Sears, a model based in LA, has opened up the opportunity for her 2.3 million fans to interact with her but, with that cam unsolicited dick pictures.
“I usually receive at least one or two dick pics per day, at minimum,” Emily told BuzzFeed News. “It’s just been consistently happening for so long. I became absolutely fed up with these kinds of disturbing and disgusting messages and comments online.”
So, Emily decided one day to let the girlfriends and wives of the men who send these photos know what their partner is doing on social media.
“We send the photos as a reminder for them to have respect for women,” Emily said. “I think it provides an accountability that people seem to lose online; being behind a screen gives people a false sense of anonymity.”
“I have noticed since posting my responses as a warning that the number has been significantly lower. I think my followers are slowly getting the message.”
