A 22 year old feminist was left horrified after she was added to an X-rated Facebook group chat about her by her own university class-mates only to find them branding her “a bike” and describing how they would throw her on a bed.
Eleanor Henry, from Melbourne, Australia then shared the post on the social media website, fuming:
“Let’s all wave hello to my fellow peers at Melbourne University.
“This is why I’ll die a feminist. It’s 2016. Let’s get back to that conversation on equality.”
“Oh and for those asking, they accidentally added me to their chat group without realizing I could read everything prior.”
Eleanor, who said she had only spoken to one of the young men “on a social level” but not crossed paths with the others, said she was unable to write her comments in the chat group because she was removed from the conversation, but she was able to view the chat history.
A friend then urged Eleanor to send screen grabs of the obscene comments to the men’s parents, adding:
“I bet they’d be real proud of their offspring.”
“No one should have to deal with that.”
