Since Sunday, screenshots, and chats of an Instagram group of young teen boys and girls called, 'Boys Locker Room' have been doing rounds after some south girls leaked the same on the internet. The chats and images show a group of youth pass vile and derogatory comments on girls, after sharing their images on the chats, most of whom are underage.
There are also a couple of other screenshots from a Snapchat conversation the reveal one boy can be seen making suggestions to rape a girl asking others to join in while another guy tries to shut it down. In this particular case, the screenshots were shared by the one trying to put an end to those horrific suggestions.
Take a look:
This has caused a stir on the internet with people sharing their reactions on Twitter:
#boyslockerroom chats only reinforces the already known fact that we need to make people understand concept of consent & respect everyone's privacy from a young age. A comprehensive sex ed inclusive of topics like mental health, anti-harassment, etc is the need of the hour.— Chittajit Mitra ?? (@cjmitra) May 4, 2020
If anyone says that those boys are the "victims," then trust me you are the part of the problem. To be honest, YOU ARE THE PROBLEM!!!#boyslockerroom— Aayush Sharma ?️? (@JournalistWFH) May 4, 2020

Mentality like this when they're not even in the category of adult, normalizing r*pe, and thinking about this shit so easily, This is what India is becoming, girls should not be afraid of boys only, they should be afraid of girls too! Fxcking great! #boyslockerroom pic.twitter.com/XJX94CRJji
Ridiculous. Not revealing their identity so that the girls would keep on believing that their friends are trustworthy and on the other hand, the boys would continue disrespecting women fearlessly and for their parents to believe that their kid is a saint?#boyslockerroom pic.twitter.com/hqZuojXQ1K— nush ?

So there’s no stopping these rich ass fuckin disgusting boys. They are not even guilty and are labelling girls calling them out as “feminist r@ndiyaan”, offering ideas to circulate their nudes around!— blopbloopbleep (@vaishalivatsayn) May 3, 2020
And why do I see no outrage from men over this? #boyslockerroom pic.twitter.com/HGe22F8Ci5
If true, it is such a disgrace that young boys can feel so entitled and be so demeaning.— ️Ladeeda Farzana (@ladeedafarzana) May 3, 2020
This is so sad to see?? They're boys still in school!!
This is why it is so important to teach ours sons how to behave as well!#boyslockerroomhttps://t.co/75c1Bx113k
This is really sick. These boys do not know how to treat and respect woman. So there was a gc on ig which went public recently and teenage boys were in it. They were sharing pictures of girls (most of them are underage) rating them, body shaming them and what not+ #boyslockerroom pic.twitter.com/HE6FUZHTmv— G?☻ ⟭⟬⁷ (@gurveen29) May 3, 2020
Reports suggest that police intervention is sought in the matter after the leaked chats started doing rounds on the internet.
