Woman gets revenge on Tinder creeps by drawing them naked
Anna Gensler, a 23-year-old artist, got sick of unsolicited, creepy messages from guys on Tinder, so she decided to get revenge in one of the best ways possible: By devoting an Instagram page to drawing all of these jerks naked.
According to her page’s bio, it goes like this. “Objectifying men who objectify women in 3 easy steps: Man sends crude line via internet. Draw him naked. Send portrait to lucky man, enjoy results.” Some of the crude lines she’s received include things like “Bet your tight” [sic] and “If I was a watermelon, would you spit or swallow my seeds?” All this, before even saying “hello.” And thus, both of those men were drawn with micropenises.
As Gensler explained to Slate,
When someone does something I think is rude, I always want to give them a taste of their own medicine. I’m an artist, and I try to use art as my weapon, even though that sounds so lame. So I thought, “What is something I can do to make me feel the way that they’re making me feel?” Obviously, I couldn’t just send them back a sexy message, because they would love that. They would be like, “Yay, it worked!” So I just started doodling how I would imagine them naked … except sad-naked. It was the most immature thing I could think of, because their pickup lines are the most juvenile, basic things, but also still oddly offensive.
So, if you’re an adult male who lacks the basic respect and decency to treat someone else like a person, you might be drawn “sad-naked.” For justice.
