Oh social media. Sometimes it’s fantastic, and sometimes you get people giving unsolicited advice on how to live your life.
Recently the latter was the case for Instagram star and one half of the Swedish YouTube duo ‘TheLineUp’, Julia Dang.
One follower decided to offer her some “tips” on what she should do to receive fewer “d**k pics”.
- Woman gets ultimate revenge on man who sent her a rude text
- Nude Instagram page trolled by ‘perverts’ sending X-rated snaps
Apparently, the way to stop strangers from sending her unsolicited, explicit images, is for her to stop posting photos of herself to her own Instagram account.
However being the girl boss she is, Julia didn’t let the supposed “tips” slide.
Taking to her 130,000-strong Instagram following, the 21-year-old addressed the “misogynistic comment”.
Even better, she did so by posting some photos of herself not taking the commenter’s advice.
“Why do men assume they’re entitled to everything concerning a woman and especially her body?” she wrote. “Can I not post a picture wearing as much or as little clothing as I want, without having men blame me that it’s my fault I’m being DM’d [direct messaged] d**k pics?
“This logic is unfortunately still being used as argument for rape. Women should never be held accountable for a man’s sexist behaviours.”
The Swedish social media star pointed out it is, in fact, 2018 and women should feel empowered to “embrace our bodies”.
Julia further explained that this year has marked a turn in how confident she’s felt in her body, and if she wants to show that off to her audience who choose to follow her, she should be able to so without having a man “shame” her.
“If you’re a man and feel offended, stop sexualising women and check yourself,” Julia continued. “If not offended, please continue supporting women having the right to do whatever f**k they want with their bodies.
“And to women, Y’ALL ARE BEAUTIFUL. Wear your clothes for yourself, cause I’m feeling myself so much in my lingerie.”
We wholeheartedly second that message, Julia.
