Woman responds to unsolicited explicit pictures from man by sending them to his mom

 Rebecca McGregor had grown frustrated with the number of unwanted x-rated pictures of men that were sent to her on a daily basis. Earlier this month the 21-year-old lingerie model and photographer decided to do something about it and found one of the perpetrator's mothers on Facebook, forwarding the picture.

Along with the explicit picture of her son, McGregor sent a curt message: "I think you need to have a chat with your son on how to approach women." 

She subsequently posted her revenge on Facebook. 

 The model from the Aberdeen, Scotland then posted a longer response to the unsolicited explicit pictures.  
"It's great people are supposed to just accept this just because it's online," she started the post which was posted June 21. "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," she continued.

"No one is 'ASKING FOR IT," she stressed before lamenting the expectations set by the social media environment. 

"I was told 'what do you expect' 'you shouldn't have Snapchat' 'you're on social media' by people, weather 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," she said.

 In an interview with the Irish Mirror June 23, she said that she receives unwanted photos multiple times a day without any conversation.
"I receive them at least three times a day unsolicited and mostly, they will just send them and not even try to say hi," she said. "Some might try and make conversation, but generally they just send them out of the blue and they appear in my inbox."
"It's not like they are getting to know me first and think 'she might like this,'" she added.

This is not the first time that McGregor has stood up about the differences between posting nude pictures and pornography. In May she posted a post on Facebook where she argued that nudity is "not synonymous with pornography." 
"Over the last few weeks I've had so much trouble with Instagram, (before anyone starts with the "1st world problems" no I'm not just a 'teenage social media addict', I use Instagram as a means of income, be it advertising for brands or exposure of my photography to get further business/shoots done)," she posted.

"Celebrities/brands that are supposed to be role models to young girls etc (Kim Kardashian, Beyoncé, Nicki Minaj, kylie/Kendal Jenner, Calvin Klein, Victoria's Secret, Ann Summers, just some of the celebs/brands that post more NUDE images/sexually explicit/sexually suggestive images but some how their accounts get kept up?" she wrote.
"I do not objectify the females I take pictures of, so why should my accounts be taken down?" she questioned.
