Anna Gensler’s process is perhaps best described in her own words:
How to objectify men who objectify women in 3 easy steps:
1. Man sends crude opening line via Tinder.
2. Draw him naked.
3. Send portrait to lucky man and enjoy results.
When Anna got tired of receiving obscene and sleazy messages on her profile on an internet dating website, the young artist decided to retaliate the best way she knew how: by drawing the men. Based on their profile pictures, Anna portrayed them as naked, fat, and not very well endowed. She then sent her portraits back to the men – as well as posting them on Instagram. Anna, aka Instagranniepants was an instant success on Instagram and soon had close to 35.000 followers. Her revenge: objectifying the men who objectified her − in public.
