EMILY SEARS IS an Australian model that currently lives in LA – and she’s taken a stand over the last month against unsolicited dick pics.
With a following of over 2.4 million on Instagram, Emily has to put up with quite an amount of unwanted and unnecessary arrivals into her inbox.
So she has a tactic to hit back – messaging their girlfriends
She told Buzzfeed that she receives on average of two photos per day to her DMs on Instagram:
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 now when she receives one, she just casually messages their partner instead
She has also been sharing her conversations with the perpetrators
She says that since she started this practice in January, the number of dick pics have “been significantly lower.”
Her story has gone global, with many praising Sears’ stance on it – which is similar to actress Debra Messing’s excellent call out on Twitter last year.
She’s now a bit of an icon in the anti-dick-pic movement
And people have been getting in touch to applaud her work as well
It’s a new tactic, but it seems to be working.
