Catrin Williams, using the handle @catttttt___ on Twitter, tweeted two photos on August 19 with a caption that pretty perfectly sums up what fun it can be to be female on the internet.
The first photo is of a pair of headphones, helpfully labeled “new headphones,” that Williams dared to post on Snapchat.
The second photo shows a response she got from some rando about how sexy he imagined she’d be in the headphones and nothing else. Um.
Her tweet of the two photos side by side has been retweeted over 30,000 times, because it’s something women hear so often about posting pictures online: “Boys wouldn’t send weird messages if you didn’t put up such slutty photos.”
See? If only the headphones weren’t so HOT, this wouldn’t be a problem. Just stop provoking men into responding to you. Posting a picture of new headphones, wearing nothing at all, in a lascivious pose on top of a floral bedspread sends out a dangerous message.
A real lady doesn’t have ears, or a bed, or a body, or an internet presence.
