A 22-year-old law student at Melbourne University was mortified after her peers accidentally added her to an outrageous group chat objectifying her.

The men added Eleanor Henry to their message thread apparently by mistake and quickly removed her, but they didn't realize that she could still access everything they had said up to that point.

What she saw was more than enough to make her shudder in horror and take to Facebook to make herself heard.


Let's all wave hello to my fellow peers at Melbourne University. This is why I'll die a feminist. It's 2016.. Let's get back to that conversation on equality.

Oh and for those asking, they accidentally added me to their chat group without realizing I could read everything prior.

Henry told the Daily Mail Australia she wouldn't "publicly name and shame the men."

Her restraint, and compassion, is even more impressive considering what they wrote.


All that and they also said, "Bring her to Thailand. We need a bike."

"Aside from this contact, I have never really engaged with them on a social level," Henry told the Daily Mail. "The other two boys in the chat," she explained, she had never even met before.

After feeling physically sick reading the messages, Henry's sister suggested she expose the "kind of rape culture" in the messages by posting them to Facebook.


Apparently after Henry posted the messages, one of the men involved begged her to take them down:

On her decision not to name the people involved, Henry explained "it's not particularly relevant in achieving the outcome I wish to pursue on a larger scale, which ultimately is to bring awareness about the issue and have people understand that it should not be merely written off as 'boys being boys.'"

Just more proof that locker room talk has nothing to do with the locker room.
