Such pictures can be a form of sexual harassment when they occur in a work/professional environment.
I empathize with the women who are offended and grossed out at receiving such images.
Many women are genuinely bothered by receiving such pictures and view it as an unwelcome intrusion.
Some feminist writers have described this as a form of sexual assault, and a way in which men assert the dominance of their sexuality over that of women.
She was surprised that overwhelmingly, men loved it, found her boldness both sexy and fun, and wanted to meet her.
So, again, we have evidence that men are sending such pictures because they think others will like them, as much as they do.
" There ARE men who've gone to jail and been put on sex offender registries for sending such pictures to persons they didn't know, who turned out to be underage.
This behavior is sometimes much more serious than we may know.
Unfortunately, I don't think such dialogue is happening, or even possible right now.Many women have tried attacking such men, flaming and shaming them, both online and in personal communications. A tenet of psychology is that negative reinforcement is still reinforcement.The more uproar, outrage and disgust that such pics get, the more powerful some men feel." As silly as this issue might seem to be, it offers some genuine opportunity for insight into the ways that modern technology reveals interesting aspects of sexuality and gender.This definitely appears to be more of a male thing.But, for some reason, whether biology, psychology or social suppression of female sexuality, women don't enjoy this the way men do.In a clever twist, one woman started sending men pics of female genitals.At least, in terms of sending the pictures unrequested.Both males and females are commonly sending nudes of themselves to people they meet online, but women tend to wait until asked.Women, and all people, should be able to have some safe spaces.Unfortunately, safety on the Internet is hard to come by.
