The internet can be a risky place for women. If you’re a model on Instagram, for example, there’s a really good chance that random dudes will send you pictures of their dicks all the time.
Of course, the internet also allows said Instagram models to find the dick pic sender’s friends and family and tell them all about what a jerk he’s being, so sometimes it evens out.
“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 she decided to fight back in the most effective way - forwarding those pictures to the men’s girlfriends. “Terribly sorry to tell u that ur partner is sending pictures of his genitals to models on Instagram,” she texted in one case. “I’m telling you this because I’m a girls girl and I think women need to stick together.”
This inspired her friend Laura, an LA-based DJ also on Instagram, to use the same tactics.
"I know if the roles were reversed and it was my boyfriend sending that shit out, I would want to know,” Laura says.
Needless to say, the offending men usually learned their lesson in a hurry.
