As every single person knows, navigating through the minefield that is dating in the 21st century is no easy feat. Whether you like it or not, apps that are meant to make dating easier, such as Tinder and Bumble, sadly also carry the risk of unwelcome and distressing interactions.
Random and unsolicited sending of sexual images or videos from men to young women, notoriously referred to as “dick pics”, is all too common. Even if you haven’t unwillingly received a picture of a man’s genitalia, then you most probably know someone who has. In fact, with technology infiltrating every aspect of our private lives, this unwelcome input from male strangers has become so normal that – just like wolf-whistling on the street – it is frequently ignored and brushed off and, in some cases, even laughed about. But sending unsolicited sexual images is not a joke. It is violating behaviour that cannot be tolerated and should never be normalised.
Tits are also sexual objects. So, tit pics should be banned by law? And how much cleavage is it that should be banned?
