I’ve written before how disgusting guys can be when hitting on women online – especially when hidden behind a computer screen. Crude sex talk, inartful come-ons, sordid imagery, violent threats. It’s all in a day’s work for women who choose to engage with men on dating apps and sites.
Enter Ms. Gensler, an artist, who received so much of this aggressive unwanted attention that she chose to fight back.
Anna Gensler is a brave badass of a woman.
She would draw the sexual harasser naked, add on a tiny penis, and post it on her Instagram feed. Talk about fighting fire with fire.
I’ll admit, I have no understanding of a man who writes to a stranger to tell her he’s going to rape her and cum on her face. But I also have no sympathy for him either.
In the words of my daughter in regards to my son: “HE started it!”
Yes, he did. And Ms. Gensler is finishing it. I’ll be the first to acknowledge that an eye for an eye leaves everyone blind.
Talk about fighting fire with fire.
But what IS the proper way to handle men who strike fear into the hearts of women from across a computer screen if not to give them a taste of their own medicine?
