A woman who shared a picture of her 'fine' dermatologist got herself in hot water when the tweet went viral - and even faced accusations of 'sexual harassment' from furious social media users who slammed her for invading his privacy.
The woman - a hairdresser from Clinton, Maryland, who is known as Purple Godesss on Twitter - made waves when she shared a picture of her dermatologist on Twitter.
照片中的这位↓就是今天的男主角——Imran Aslam医生~推特Po文时，Purple Godesss还配上了一句话：我的皮肤科医生帅爆了！
Purple Godesss uploaded a picture of Dr. Imran Aslam, but in the shot, he doesn't seem to be aware he's being photographed, which led many to believe that the picture had been taken and shared online without his consent.
The now-deleted thread was seen more than 1.6 million times and gathered more than 900,000 interactions, according to Twitter.
However, some people began to question if the whole thing wasn’t just a little bit creepy. What if a guy had taken a sneak pic of an attractive woman at work, just doing her job?
眼看着网友们在评论区里针锋相对，Purple Goddess 却没有停手的意思。
Purple Goddess wasn’t finished yet though. Determined to see her dermatologist go viral, she continued to share information about him, even going as far as sharing his location.
“My first reaction was just pure anxiety,” Dr. Imran Aslam said. “I am a very low key individual so when I first heard that I was trending on Twitter I was kind of freaking out, like “oh my god what is happening.” I started getting texts from friends all over the country, some of whom I hadn’t spoken to in years, telling me that I’m the top post on Twitter.”
“Once the anxiety settled though, and I realized that most people were receiving my picture favorably, I started to find the whole situation pretty funny.”
“Regarding the discussion of sexual harassment and double standards: I thought that the Reddit discussion was quite interesting and that many individuals made excellent points. By definition, many of the comments on my picture would be considered a form of sexual harassment, and I can totally understand how people consider this to be a double standard in light of the #metoo movement. And that if those same comments were made about a woman there would an uproar.”
“From my perspective, I would be remiss if I didn’t acknowledge the fact that I never felt that I was a “victim”. As I reflect more on this sentiment I realize the reason for this is undoubtedly because of my “male privilege.” I have had the privilege of never once feeling threatened or intimated by a woman in a sexual manner, I have had the privilege of never being catcalled, and I have had the privilege of never experiencing what it’s like to be followed home by a stranger that was a woman.”
“It is because of these liberties that we enjoy as males that I think the sexual harassment discussion may have to be interpreted differently in my situation.”
