Military Times: ‘Thirst-trap’ posts on TikTok raise questions about military social media policies

Military Times: ‘Thirst-trap’ posts on TikTok raise questions about military social media policies. “A few weeks back, a TikTok post of two female soldiers dancing to Cardi B’s ‘WAP’ made the rounds on Twitter, prompting heated discussions about everything from issues on moonlighting and poor conduct to misogyny and sexism. But these two soldiers were just a few of many — men and women — accused of posting ‘thirst trap’ videos to TikTok. For those who aren’t aware, Urban Dictionary defines ‘thirst trap’ as ‘a sexy photograph or flirty message posted on social media for the intent of causing others to publicly profess their attraction. This is done not to actually respond or satisfy any of this attraction, but to feed the posters ego or need for attention.'”
