Friday follow: @feminist_tinder documents harassment and outs misogynists

feat
If you swipe right on Tinder, you’re bound to be matched up with sexist dudes, and for whatever reason they think it’s okay to be jerks because they’re protected by their phone screen.

@feminist_tinder took advantage of these guys’ brazenness and turned it into a hilarious Instagram account that now has over 87,000 followers. The woman behind the account, Laura Nowak, included “feminist” in her Tinder bio, and boy-oh-boy did that piss off the misogynists.

She features her own messages and submissions from others who are experiencing the same thing on the dating app. The first time I came across it I spent 20 minutes looking through old posts. It’s addicting for two reasons: first, the comments from men are ridiculous; second, Nowak’s responses are on point.

Here are some of our favourites.
