A woman has taken to social media to expose ridiculous levels of hypocrisy from men who shame women for sharing nude photos.
29-year-old Lindsey is not your average keyboard warrior who writes lengthy essays online whinging about the issue – no, her method is far more direct.
You see Lindsey, who goes by the Twitter handle @CardsAgstHrsmt, screenshots posts from men slamming women for naked and half-naked selfies, and then contrasts those messages with half-naked images uploaded by those very same men, alongside the convenient hashtag #ShirtlessShamers2016.
The evidence is pretty irrefutable…
Speaking to BuzzFeed, Lindsey revealed that the whole thing started when she stumbled across a guy on Twitter bitching about how he ‘loses respect’ for women who post half-naked selfies online.
His own twitter photo? A topless image of himself.
A few searches later, and I’d come across lots of other dudes gleefully condemning women as ‘sluts’ in one tweet and flexing their naked chests in another.
They’re torn between wanting to consume women’s nudity for their enjoyment, and condemning it if it’s presented as self-expression or self-celebration.
And of course for daring to speak up in the name of equality Lindsey herself has become a target of online abuse.
It’s a good job she is more than capable of handling it, with a quality sense of humour.

If you want to share half-naked images online, no one is going to stop you, but just remember – nobody likes a hypocrite.
