If you’re familiar with Reddit, you may be familiar with the site’s creepiest subreddit, aptly named “Creepshots”.
It featured candid photos of women, sexualizing them and posted without their consent. Despite being hugely popular, Creepshots was eventually banned for obvious reasons.
But the degrading forum has somehow wormed its way back into the Reddit community under a new name: CandidFashionPolice.
Sure, it sounds innocent enough — but upon viewing the forum, it’s clear that CandidFashionPolice is almost exactly the same as what Creepshots used to be. It features candid photos of women in revealing clothing, and totally objectifies them under the guise of fashion.
When clicking on some of the posts (which we won't re-publish here for obvious reasons, like not inflicting more pain on the victims), it immediately becomes clear that the whole “fashion” angle is just a thin disguise for the creepier draw of female (and occasionally male) T&A.
Then the real kicker is the link at the top. It reads:
“If you want to post to this subreddit, but have a hard time finding new pics [Click here]”
The “Click Here” link leads to a long list of creepy Twitter pages and websites that are oddly similar to the original Creepshots, as can be seen in the photo below:
Is it just us, or do the forum's claims of being about fashion when it's not make CandidFashionPolice even MORE creepy than Creepshots??
At least the original was honest about its intentions!
