If Mad Men and Community have taught us anything (and they’ve taught us everything), it’s that you should always listen to Alison Brie. So, when she says, “Hey, fellas, please don’t send unsuspecting women pictures of your penis. Don’t send unsuspecting women pictures of your penis.” There was no “…or else” warning to Brie’s plea, but Emily Sears isn’t as forgiving.
The Australian model, who has 2.3 million followers on Instagram, told BuzzFeed that she receives “one or two dick pics per day, at minimum.” That is far too many dick pics, and she became “absolutely fed up with these kinds of disturbing and disgusting messages and comments online.” So, Sears came up with a simple way of stopping dudes from sending photos of their junk:
It worked so well that Sears’ friend, a Los Angeles-based DJ named Laura, started doing the same thing. She contacted the girlfriend of a guy who sent her a dick pic and called her a “slut” when she didn’t respond positively, because “I guess I felt really sad for her… but I thought she deserved to know how her boyfriend was behaving towards other women.”
Laura finds it “absurd” that men still send dick pics to women they don’t know. Not only is it inappropriate, but “I’ve never heard a woman say, ‘Really? I love opening my inbox to dick pics from random guys! It totally makes me want to have sex with them!’” She added, “And yet, they’re still doing it with an alarming frequency.” They get what they deserve until they learn.
