From the creator of the viral Instagram account comes an empowering guide to navigating the hazards and horrors of online dating.
In an online world increasingly filled with harassment and trolling, women mostly bear the brunt of hostile sexual messages. Over half of young women say they've been sent explicit images that they didn’t ask for, according to Pew. After one too many of these hostile encounters, Alexandra Tweten created the viral Instagram account @ByeFelipe, which calls out men who turn hostile when rejected or ignored. Taking examples from her new book, Bye Felipe: Disses, Dick Pics, and Other Delights of Modern Dating, Alexandra will lead a workshop on the best online dating safety tactics, clever responses to the trolls, and what we can all do to curb online harassment.
Alexandra Tweten is the creator of the Instagram account @ByeFelipe and has been called a "Feminist-Tinder-Creep-Busting Web Vigilante." She has been featured in national media outlets including The New York Times, Huffington Post, The Guardian, and Cosmopolitan, and has recently appeared on Good Morning America and Nightline. Tweten co-hosts the V Single Podcast on iTunes and has been a guest speaker at universities, the L.A. Museum of Broken Relationships, and the Sexting Art Fest in NY.
