While perusing Facebook I noticed my friends sharing and sharing and sharing this story about a gal named Kelly…
Victim? Yes, she is a victim to dumb ass meme creators on the internet. We’ve all laughed at them – they’re everywhere and some can be really funny. A cat meme- totally cool in my book but this?!?! I bet you don’t want women to get paid equally as men either – right? – - meme creators, look out – folks will rebel and you will look like the idiot.
It’s one thing to have an opinion, it’s another to be outright cruel – ahem, Paul Sherman – - “That’s also what a lifelong virgin looks like.” It’s cool, you just shared with the entire world your photo, name, and biggest personality downfall – - being an asshole.
Kelly was part of a university on campus campaign “This is what a feminist looks like.” - – similar to our Self Love Project.
Kelly says in her post, “The biggest miss the creator of my meme made was not realizing the point of the This is What a Feminist Looks Like campaigns; the point is to draw attention to the fact that feminists are not all the same. We are all different. ”
In a kick-ass response, Kelly started a tumbler- We Are What Feminists Look Like.
“This experience has taught me that while one cruel person can ruin my morning, I have an entire community of friends, family, and feminists to back me up.”
We are supporting Kelly’s Campaign! I submitted my photo today!
Our gal Shaina is participating too!
