Unsolicited d*ck pics are an unfortunate part of most women’s experience in the dating world. You’re innocently scrolling through a dating app or texting a guy you went out with once about how much you love McDonald’s fries when BAM! Your phone lights up with a photo of some dude’s junk that you didn’t ask for and certainly didn’t want.
Receiving these photos is a particularly terrible form of harassment, as there’s not much you can do to fight back besides blocking the pervert and trying to block the image of a near to total stranger’s genitals out of your brain forever. However, one woman decided to fight back and her response was basically the best thing ever.
This random guy somehow got my number off here and sent me a dick pic and I guess he didn’t appreciate it when I sent a picture of mine back ??♀️ worked like a charm pic.twitter.com/uzdluTH4hb

Faye Kinley took to Twitter this week to share screenshots of a text conversation she had with a guy who somehow got a hold of her phone number and, after throwing her a few cheap compliments about how sexy she is, decided to bombard her with a d*ck pic.
This isn’t the first time she’s been subject to messages like this, but it is the first time she decided to respond like this.
why is this so funny to me asdhkll pic.twitter.com/eY1x1NkuB7

You see, Kinley just so happens to be a trans woman, so after receiving the unwanted lewd photo, she decided to send back a photo of her own penis. This freaked the recipient out immediately and he decided to block her, despite the fact that just moments before he was coming onto her.
“What the hell? Why would you send me that?” the unnamed man wrote. “I’m blocking your number now.” He then ordered her to delete the conversation because, you know, he gets to call the shots (not).
Men really flip out when you treat them the way they treat you.

Kinley’s tweet soon blew up, receiving more than 297,000 likes and 64,000 retweets. Not only that, but her follower count climbed from about 200 to nearly 24,000. While she’s received some transphobic responses—”That’s a given,” she told Pink News—she’s found that most of the feedback she’s received has been overwhelmingly positive.
“The fact that these men want to clearly have sex with me before even knowing I’m trans and then act all appalled and transphobic afterward just validated to me that it has nothing to do with my gender not being valid,” she explained.
LOL he’s shook. Got his transphobia and homophobia vying for control. pic.twitter.com/qVnHpP3Px7

“After all they found me attractive, and everything to do with them being insecure at the possibility of being attracted to someone with a penis ‘making them gay.'”
yeah... a lot hahahahaha— faye (@fayekinley) September 26, 2019
Kinley will unfortunately probably deal with more harassment like this in the future, but one thing’s for sure: she has the best comeback ever if it does happen.
