Going to get me equal rights? How is having pictures like these –
or this –
Going to help me be treated equal to anyone?
“Women should be able to express their rights not just in the workplace but socially…there shouldn’t be a double standard.”
” This isn’t just each girl, it’s for women as a whole”
I’m ok with a double standard here – I do not want to be held as an equal to some D.A.G. or Guy who believes this is acceptable ..
Don’t include ME in your “women as a whole” .
(Before the people who know me think I am being hypocritical – yes. I have knelt before the porcelain throne, I have passed out….a couple times even as an adult – a few more than I would like to admit or ever thought I would as an adult – doesn’t mean I want pictures of myself in these situations TAKEN let alone posted on line for the world to see. I have learned my lesson, I hope, and believe me, these lessons were hard.)
There are so many who don’t realize that the internet is forever. You can delete it, but there is, somewhere, a record of it. There is someone who saw the picture…the post… copied it and decided to make a meme out of it and now – LOOK! There you are on some bored housewives blog about drunk girls… where do you think I got these pictures? I copied them from the internet.
I admit, I do have pictures of myself out with friends and a beer or some sort of drink in my hand on Facebook, so I am not completely innocent in this. However, I would hope that a potential employer, etc. would not equate a beer in my hand the same as he would a picture of me drunk and throwing up in the bathroom of the local Three Dollar. I hope.
Before they put this kind of thing out there…I wish they would think – do I want my preacher to see this? My teachers? My mom? My father? My children?
I am so thankful that my children do not do this…
