THIS RESEARCHER IS GATHERING DICK PICS TO TEST PENIS-DETECTING AI

On Thursday, a Twitter account appeared called “showMeYourD.” It had a simple request for the internet: send in a legal, consensual picture of your penis. It’s for science. They promise.

The goal is to use the dick pics to test an algorithm that can automatically filter out pictures of penises — a much-needed technology for an internet filled with unsolicited nudes, revenge porn, and other forms of sexual harassment.

A developer and internet harassment activist named Kelsey Bressler, formerly of anti-revenge porn group Badass, first put out the call for dick pics to test the filter.

“The ultimate goal would be to inspire Twitter and other platforms to give users the power to control what types of content they’re receiving,” said Bressler, who built the filter with a collaborator. “Currently the solution to not getting these images is closing your inbox completely but it’s not right that we should be expected to do that.”

At first, the account was begging for more phalli.
