'It's A Disgusting Act'. Russian Feminist Pours Bleach On Random Men Because She Doesn't Like How They Are Sitting

Date September 27, 2018

A law student is going around pouring bleach on random men in trains because she feels the way they sit is intimidating. And people are not happy. 

The fight against "Manspreading"

20-year-old Anna Dovgalyuk said she's determined to bring an end to 'manspreading" because she considered it to be a form of "gender aggression" in Russia. In her opinion, the country should be doing more about the situation.

In a now-deleted video, Anna can be seen pouring a mixture of water and bleach on the crotch area of men's pants because they were spreading their legs too far apart.

She explained that the solution she poured on them was a bleach/water mixture that was "30 times more concentrated than the mixture used by housewives when doing the laundry."

Anna added that this mixture will basically destroy the men's pants by eating the fabric colors within minutes and leaving stains that can never be removed.


Этот ролик — мой второй видеоманифест. С его помощью я хочу привлечь внимание к проблеме мэнспрединга — отвратительного явления, с которым борятся во многих странах. И которое до сих пор умалчивается в России. Для меня крайне важно привлечь внимание людей к этой проблеме, вызвать обсуждение. Потому что публичное неуважение к женщине — это позор для общества! Снять ролик мне помогли друзья, полностью разделяющие мою позицию. This is my new video manifesto, dedicated to the problem of manspreading. The disgusting act that is being fought with around the world and it is hushed up in us. Men demonstrating their alpha-manhood in the subway with women and children around, deserve contempt. If you publicly show what kind of macho you are, we will publicly cool you off! This video manifesto was created in assistance with friends who share my position.

According to her, manspreading is "a disgusting act that is being fought around the world - but hushed up here." Anna insisted that she was acting on behalf of women who have had to "endure the manifestations of you declaring your macho qualities on public transportation."

People are slamming her video

Not many people considered Anna's agenda to be a worthy cause. In fact, her video, which got over 3 million views in a couple of days, has received more than 62,000 dislikes so far.

"You're a despicable human and should be ashamed of yourself," one commenter said while another added, "Its called assault. No matter what country."

Many people felt that she could seriously be harming these men considering the fact that the bleach could come in contact with their genitals. "Bleach on the skin can cause a chemical burn, irritation, swelling, permanent tissue damage," a YouTube user warned.

In general, most of the commenters disagreed with Anna's methods and even the topic she claimed to be fighting for. Some were also women who believed that this was taking feminism to a ridiculous level.

She once protested upskirting

This is not the first time Anna has been in the news for her protesting methods. Last year, tired of a practice known as 'upskirting', Anna made a video of herself raising up her skirt to show her panties in public places.


A post shared by Anna Dovgalyuk (@anna_boni_lu) on

Upskirting referred to an act where men choose to film under women's skirts in public. She felt angered by this and basically wanted men to see exactly what was under a woman's skirt since they are so curious. 

So take a look at what we have under our skirt and don’t come near us anymore.

Many people have accused her of simply seeking attention as they felt she was not really solving any problems but only succeeding in encouraging people to talk about her.
