So, a situation just had a place that made me start to think where are we headed and how people get labeled.
Almost 4 years ago me and my close friend took these photos in his niece’s room when we were at the gym in his garage.
We thought it was funny for us grown men to sit in this pink and sweet room of his 6 y/o niece. We set these as our Facebook profile pictures, pledging to never change them because they’re funny and we like to laugh at ourselves. Mine stays while he changed his to this generic profile photo just yesterday. Well, not really he changed it, his girlfriend did.
I’m not salty about him changing it, just WHY he changed it shocked me and made me post about it here. He went working for the army just like two weeks ago and his fellow soldier buddies started to mock him for his profile picture, calling him a wimp, a namby-pamby, fag etc. They told him to change it because it looks bad. He didn’t really give a shit and just brushed them off, saying he doesn’t care about it, he’s had this picture for almost 4 years and he thinks it’s funny and it stays. Later that day his platoon, battalion leader or whatever it’s called, called him after his working hours giving him shit and telling him to change that profile picture to “preserve the soldier’s image” or whatever. My friend told about this whole ridiculous situation to his gf and she changed the picture to that one from the wedding. He said he’s not changing it back because he doesn’t want any trouble at work.
I dunno, I’m just shocked how some people treat this retarded social media and online lives in general. Like… really who cares if you’re a fucking furry (much love @scm97tl <3 ) or have a pink room in your house. Your duty is to do soldier’s duties when you’re on the job, right? I mean right? Not any of your supervisors should have the right to pull shit like that. Like what world are we living in… it’s just a fucking facebook picture for fuck’s sake. Nobody cares… or so I thought… Pathetic, really.
