New Delhi : After 2 days , a tweet from a school girl of Delhi went viral on social media, along with screenshot of chats of a group on Sunday 3 May.
The girl tweeted, “A group of south delhi guys aged 17-18 types have this ig gc named “boy’s locker room” where they on, objectify and morph pictures of girls their age. 2 boys from my school are a part of it. MY FRIENDS AND I ARE FREAKING OUT THIS IS SO EWWW AND NOW MY MOM WANTS ME TO QUIT IG”
The group that called itself “Boys Locker Room” was operated on Instagram and were having several members nearby hundred and all of them were school going kids aged 17-18. This group was objectifying girls and passing the nudes with vile comments about their bodies while knowing that those girls are minors (as girl mentioned it several times) but there was no effect on the behavior of these young men. They were putting objectionable content about those minor girls and discussed illegal acts including rape
On Monday, 4 May Delhi commission of women affairs came in LimeLight after issuing notice to the police and Instagram over the group for being used to share an objectionable post about minor girls.
Then after on Tuesday 5 May, Instagram removed the objectionable content featuring on its platform.
The whole case reflects the sexual education system and gender sensitivity among children. It is necessary to teach parents about such concerns and ensure a positive environment at home.
