That distinction may simply be an expression of gender differences in mating and dating strategies.
The fact is, women are told that being sexually bold in such a manner is shameful and makes them a slut.
Women, and all people, should be able to have some safe spaces.
Unfortunately, safety on the Internet is hard to come by.
Many women have tried attacking such men, flaming and shaming them, both online and in personal communications. A tenet of psychology is that negative reinforcement is still reinforcement.
The more uproar, outrage and disgust that such pics get, the more powerful some men feel.
Ultimately, the answer here lies in greater dialogue with men and women, over what they actually want in sexual communications.
This reach some of these men, those who are genuinely not understanding some sexual differences.Any woman who has ever ventured into the world of online dating, or almost any form of modern electronic communication, will tell you that one of their main complaints is that men routinely send them unsolicited pictures of their genitals.Women understandably complain about this for two main reasons: "Men are GROSS" is the most common explanation that women have for this. Do they really think I'm going to magically want to have sex with them now, after seeing their penis?One issue is that men just aren't good at hearing, or responding to "No." I'm not excusing that.But this same dynamic, that men think women are sexually as excited as they are, is getting in the way of men hearing the "No, we DON'T want to see that!The shaming and suppression of female sexuality is part of the issue here, as men don't feel they understand what women actually want sexually, and women don't feel they can express it safely.
