Melbourne:

'Toothy face' selfie has been trending on Twitter to ward off men who have the tendency to harass women on social media.

Tired of men's harassing comments on Twitter, a Brazil woman named Debora Adorno came up with the idea to scare off men by simply baring her pearly whites at them, giving a scary crazy lady look, News.com.au reported.

The 'toothy face' idea caught up instantly and women all across the globe are followed her lead, baring their teeth in response to sexual harassment with the hashtag #CaretaDoDentinho, roughly translated as "tooth grimace," to mark their efforts.

Adorno had also written a long post on Facebook about her experiences with sexual harassment in Belo Horizonte, saying that it had become difficult for her to even walk down the street as men kept leering at her.

Stating her discomfort in her native tongue, she said after she tries the tooth selfie, it seemed to give men an expression of some sort of deformity, and hence called upon the women to repel the 'perverted' lot with the "power of the tooth."
