Photographer responds to unsolicited nude pic by sending it to the man’s mother.

“I think you need to have a chat with your son.”

One of the most disturbing trends ushered in by the era of social media and smartphones is the unsolicited nude pic. A survey by Match.com found that among female millennials, 53% had received pictures of a man’s member, and 49% of them hadn’t requested it.


A photographer in Aberdeen, Scotland, was so fed up with the unsolicited pics that she fought back in the most diabolical way possible. Rebecca McGregor claims that since she started her boudoir and lingerie photography business three years ago, she’s received about three pictures of men’s genitals per day. Earlier this month, she took things to the next level when she found one of the men’s mother and texted her the picture. “Hey doll, I see you’re listed as Glenn’s mother?” she wrote in the text. “I think you need to have a chat with your son on how to approach women – see attached xx.”

McGregor hopes her act of vengeance will help curb Glenn’s naughty behavior. “I hope she would understand why I did what I did and would explain that he shouldn’t just send images like that,” she told The Scottish Sun. This wasn’t the first time she has shamed a man for an unsolicited pic. McGregor frequently shares the nudes she receives on her Facebook page. “People who are friends with me on Facebook will know that I repost these on my wall quite often to give out the message that this isn’t okay,” she said. “Some people seem to have taken the hint.”

After news of McGregor’s act of rough justice hit the news wire, she wrote a lengthy Facebook post on the problem of sexual harassment on social media. Here’s an excerpt:

“It’s great people are supposed to just accept this just because it’s online:))))) and if you don’t agree with being sexually harassed by strangers you’ve never spoken to you’re a ‘man hater’ ‘deserve it’ or just have to ‘block them’ ‘like everyone else’ and let them know it’s ‘acceptable’ to start on the next stranger :)))))) love this rape culture we all condone :))))))

Would it be different if you went swimming with your mum in bikinis and a creepy ald random manny started groping your mum right in front of you?

No one is ‘ASKING FOR IT’ I was told ‘what do you expect’ ‘you shouldn’t have Snapchat’ ‘you’re on social media’ by people, whether you’re on social media or your accounts are PRIVATE or PUBLIC it does NOT ‘give the right’ to someone to expose themselves to you unwanted. Social media Is used by MANY BUSINESS’ to advertise their business, be it Snapchat, Twitter, Facebook, tumblr, Instagram etc it does NOT mean because they have a social media account they want to have people expose themselves to them.”

Tonight's Democratic debate is a must-watch for followers of the 2020 election. And it's a nice distraction from the impeachment inquiry currently enveloping all of the political oxygen in America right now.

For most people, the main draw will be newly anointed frontrunner Pete Buttigieg, who has surprisingly surged to first place in Iowa and suddenly competing in New Hampshire. Will the other Democrats attack him? How will Elizabeth Warren react now that she's no longer sitting alone atop the primary field? After all, part of Buttigieg's rise has been his criticisms of Warren and her refusal to get into budgetary specifics over how she'd pay for her healthcare plan.

The good news is that Joe Biden apparently counts time travel amongst his other resume-building experience.

This election cycle, six women threw their hat in the ring for president, but is their gender holding them back? Would Americans feel comfortable with a woman leading the free world? Based on the last election, the answer is a swift no. And a new study backs this up. The study found that only 49% of American men would feel very comfortable with a woman serving as the head of the government. By comparison, 59% of women said they would feel comfortable with a woman in charge.

The Reykjavik Index for Leadership, which measures attitude towards women leaders, evaluated the attitudes of those living in the G7 countries as well as Brazil, China, India, and Russia. 22,000 adults in those 11 countries were surveyed on their attitudes about female leadership in 22 different sectors, including government, fashion, technology, media, banking and finance, education, and childcare.

Only two countries, Canada and the U.K., had a majority of respondents say they would be more comfortable with a female head of state. Germany (which currently has a female Chancellor), Japan, and Russia were the countries least comfortable with a female head of state.

If you are totally ready to move on from Donald Trump, you're not alone. According to a report last April from the Wason Center National Survey of 2020 Voters, "President Trump will be the least popular president to run for reelection in the history of polling."

Yes, you read that right, "history of polling."

After three years on the sidelines, Colin Kapernick will be working out for multiple NFL teams on Saturday, November 16 at the Atlanta Falcons facility.

The former 49er quarterback who inflamed the culture wars by peacefully protesting against social injustice during the national anthem made the announcement on Twitter Tuesday.

Kaepernick is scheduled for a 15-minute on-field workout and an interview that will be recorded and sent to all 32 teams. The Miami Dolphins, Dallas Cowboys, and Detroit Lions are expected to have representatives in attendance.

"We like our quarterback situation right now," Miami head coach, Brian Flores said. "We're going to do our due diligence."

NFL Insider Steve Wyche believes that the workout is the NFL's response to multiple teams inquiring about the 32-year-old quarterback. A league-wide workout would help to mitigate any potential political backlash that any one team may face for making an overture to the controversial figure.

Kapernick is an unrestricted free agent (UFA) so any team could have reached out to him. But it's believed that the interested teams are considering him for next season.

Earlier this year, Kaepernick and Carolina Panthers safety Eric Reid reached a financial settlement with the league in a joint collusion complaint. The players alleged that the league conspired to keep them out after they began kneeling during the national anthem in 2016.

Before the 2019 season, Kaepernick posted a video of himself working out on twitter to show he was in great physical condition and ready to play.

Kaepnick took the 49ers to the Super Bowl in 2012 and the NFC Championship game in 2013.

He has the 23rd-highest career passer rating in NFL history, the second-best interception rate, and the ninth-most rushing yards per game of any quarterback ever. In 2016, his career to a sharp dive and he won only of 11 games as a starter.
