So The "Women Who Eat On Tubes" Facebook Group Is Pretty Creepy
Women eat. Sometimes they do it in public. And...?
For those of you who were blissfully unaware of the "Women Who Eat On Tubes" Facebook group, it's basically a group where people post photos they've taken of women eating on the tube.
The people behind WWEOT say they are "not judgemental [sic]" and that the group does not "intimidate nor bully" women.
Each picture usually includes the location, time, and line the woman was eating on, as well as a detailed description of how they were eating, plus multiple photos.
The women don't know they're being photographed, and if they appear to be aware of what's going on, the commenters will note that "she 100% knew" something was up.
Despite WWEOT claiming to "cherish" the women in the photographs, there's something very uncomfortable about people secretly photographing and even filming women in public.
And as Sophie Wilkinson described in The Debrief, if you're unhappy being on the WWEOT page, it's not that easy to get your photograph removed.
After discovering her photo on WWEOT, Wilkinson contacted the man who took the photo of her, and asked him to take it down. His reply?
Sure, WWEOT members use words like "majestic" and "art" to describe their "suspects" in the wild, but the women aren't in on the joke.
