Australian model Emily Sears has begun telling the wives and girlfriends of men who send her pictures of their penises online about their behavior.
An Australian model tired of seeing her Instagram followers’ private parts has decided to shame the senders by letting their wives and girlfriends know what they were up to online.
Emily Sears, a 31-year-old beauty based in Los Angeles, has amassed an audience of more than 2 million people through a combination of selfies and shots of her enjoying the high life.
However, Sears’s snaps have inspired a constant stream of creeps to send in their own pictures of their pensises.
The model found one harasser’s loved one and said that “women need to stick together.”
“I usually receive at least one or two d*** pics per day, at minimum,” the Maxim model told Buzzfeed.
Sears has used the conversations ensuing after the unsolicited photos to speak to her harassers directly about their loutish behavior.
Sears and her DJ friend Laura hope that bringing attention to the issue will lead to a decrease in harassment.
But now she and her DJ friend Laura are giving the exhibitionist men some exposure they may not be comfortable with by finding and contacting their loved ones through social media.
“I think it provides an accountability that people seem to lose online; being behind a screen gives people a false sense of anonymity,” she said.
The Aussie tweeted one response from a thankful girlfriend who found out that her boyfriend had sent pictures to four other women and hit her after she dumped him.
Sears, who said that the explicit photos have slowed down after she began posting her responses online, pointed out that Internet harassment is something dealt with by many women, not just social media stars.
She told Baller Mind Frame that she is also regularly insulted via apps such as Instagram, with “minimum 100 slurs per week.”
“I am exposed to countless derogatory messages from strangers. As much as you can try and ignore it, there’s no measure to the long term effects of being exposed to this volume of verbal abuse.”
