A Swedish singer's joke about men who boast about the size of their manhood struck a chord with women after her Instagram post went viral.
Zara Larsson, 17, made the post by sticking a condom over her leg and pulling it all the way up to the knee and then dedicating the post to men who say they are too large to use a condom.
She wrote: "To all the guys saying "my d*** is too big for condoms" TAKE A SEAT."
But the light-hearted remark including a picture of her foot with a condom for illustration quickly went viral notching up tens of thousands of shares. Swedish, Norwegian and Danish media were quick to pick up on the playful jab to irresponsible sexual partners, with some newspapers even hailing Larsson as a feminist icon.
The 17-year old Larsson, who won "Talang", the Swedish version of "Britain's Got Talent" back in 2008, had posted the message earlier this week.
The massive attention has come as an overwhelming surprise to Larsson herself, she writes on her personal blog.
"I merely meant it as a funny joke. Since then newspapers have been writing about what a feminist genius I am!
"I don't see myself as some kind of holy Mother Mary of feminism. I am very well aware that there are many, many girls out there that are much better than me in so many ways and receive much too little attention," she writes.
Nevertheless, the young singer, who has released two albums since her quick rise to TV-stardom in 2008, has become a big viral hit. So far 51,300 people have liked her Instagram post.
