Woman gets back at online dating creeps by drawing them with tiny penises and posting to Instagram
When 23-year-old Anna Gensler, an artist, joined Tinder six months ago, she was hoping to meet guys. Instead, she was matched with a whole bunch of creeps. Their opening texts ranged in message and tone from "I have a long penis" to "Bet your [sic] tight." Gensler was—like most women on dating sites—put off by the dudes, who seemed to think these disgusting overtures would actually work.
Instead of just deleting the texts or writing back something angry, Gensler decided to try to "give them a taste of their own medicine."
"I try to use art as my weapon, even though that sounds so lame," Gensler told Slate. Using the men's profile pics as guidelines, she created cartoon images of them, but naked and with tiny penises. Alongside the drawings, she included their initial texts. Then she posted the art to Instagram and shared it with the guys."
