I am an 18 year old girl who gets 50 dm requests a day that are nothing but objectifing.
-Can I be your daddy?
- Do you like older men?
- How much to see you naked
- *sends an unsolicited picture as the very first message*
Every single day. I have gotten stalkers. I have received more rape threats than I can count. Including some saying they would rape me in front of my boyfriend, and then proceeded to try to find my location via my name (which is why I use an alias).
And yet when we speak up and say, this is an issue.. all we hear is,
Well just block them.
Why don't you just go private?
Blocking them half works because most of them have multiple accounts. And me blocking them doesn't help other girls being exposed.
And I should not have to go private, because you can not properly moderate your app and keeping girls safe.
Fix your app Instagram. Or I will find a different service to use.
