Hey fellow viewers! Viola’s the name, you can call me Vi and say hello to my absolutely awesome page with lots of great content.
Sorry that I haven’t blogged in a while, I’ve been up to my neck with revision – being in Year 11 and all. However I have finally managed to make room to talk to all you guys and to make my 4th blog on my page #TheChicWithBlueHair.
Today, as you can see from the title, I want to talk about this new recent trend that I’ve seen all over my screen on what everyone knows as Facebook. It seems that people are taking a picture from two of their friends, putting them side by side and writing “Who is prettier, A or B?” and people comment who is prettier than the other.
What the heck is this shit?????????????
It’s an utter outrage! I can’t believe Facebook is allowing this to be plastered all over their website, it’s down right SICK. That’s what it is. SICK, SICK, SICK.
Is this what society and humanity is reduced to now? That we have to say that someone isn’t as pretty as someone else? People don’t know what these girls go through, and guys as well. What if A gets 25 people saying that she is prettier and B only gets one person, and that person is her mum? You don’t know what she goes through.
What if she has starved herself and has lost 30 pounds to look what she she thinks is half decent? What if she has never had a boyfriend or girlfriend and she feels that no one likes her because of it? What if she thinks that a personality isn’t enough these days and she puts loads of makeup on to hide her imperfections because she isn’t comfortable looking at her own face in the mirror everyday? What if she is suffering from depression and has all the scars in the world to prove it? What if she has no parents and is living with her grandparents? What if she is poor and can’t afford to buy makeup and a new pair of shoes every week to make her self look “hot”? What if she was going through those things? What if?
How would she feel after seeing people’s comments that are supposedly her “friends”. For some people, that is enough to tip them over the edge. This is more wrong than anything that I’ve ever seen.
The previous trend was “Don’t Judge” where there were two shots of people, one where society refers to as ugly and the other where they have loads of makeup on and styled hair. Now Facebook has gone from saying not to judge people to judging them to see who’s the prettiest.
I am ashamed to be friends on Facebook with people who think this is the slightest bit okay. I am the type of person that can take a lot of things without getting offended but if anybody dares to involve me in this crap I swear to Christ I will go mental because this bullshit needed to cut the hell out. I would never turn to my friends and say that one of them is prettier than the other because that’s not what friends do. It would make the other feel like absolute crap.
Thanks guys for reading my blog, leave a like a comment and I will talk to you next time.
Stay swagalicious guys! Viola over and out xxx
