Being a girl really isn’t easy, much to many people’s surprise. After all, only girls would get harassed just for posting a picture or two.
He wrote, “That’s it. I’m too scared to edit my face as a girl anymore.”
After posting the images of himself as a girl, he allegedly received a series of uncomfortable messages from a man asking Hyekal if ‘she’ does phone sex.
After not receiving a response, the man then proceeded to offer ‘her’ money in exchange for sex.
“If you want payment, I can pay you,” the man said.
The man’s behaviour is certainly disgusting but sadly very common. Netizens took to the thread to voice out their concerns and opinions.
This comment goes, “If we men already feel creeped out by this, how would girls feel about guys who constantly DM them. Can you feel it?”
This comment says, “Now you understand how girls have felt this entire time?”
As according to The Malaysian Centre for Constitutionalism and Human Rights (MCCHR), women experience double the amount of online sexual harassment compared to men and obviously, any sort of sexual harassment towards anyone is just plain wrong.
Hence, if you are being sexually harassed, here’s what the All Women’s Action Society (AWAM) suggests you do (and we’re saying this regardless of gender).
- Inform the harasser that their advances are not welcomed.
- Gather as much evidence as possible on the harasser’s details and actions. This can include screenshots of the harassment, the harasser’s identity, a time and date as to when the incident happened and so forth.
- Make a complaint or report.
- Reach out to organisations such as AWAM for assistance.
- Demand to be informed of the development of the case.
- Seek emotional support from friends, family and loved ones.
Such disgusting behaviour should not be overlooked because even though your harasser may eventually leave you alone, the harasser can always find other victims.
We’re not entirely sure if the man was just trolling Hyekal but if he wasn’t, we genuinely hope the man who sent those repulsive messages is brought to justice as a lesson to all sexual harassers out there.
