Online Bashing

Online Bashing

You can put people down online, but you can’t be tough enough to do it in person?

Whoever made the nursery rhyme, “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me” was obviously not born in the 21st century. Words can most definitely hurt someone's feelings.

Just because you don’t like someone doesn't mean you need to point it out to the whole world. You aren't going to get along with everyone. Everyone isn’t going to be your best friend. You aren’t going to have commonalities with everyone you come across. Everyone has their differences, their own beliefs and their own ways of doing life. Who are you to sit there and judge someone for being themselves? What kind of person are you?

If you think someone is ugly, it does not mean you have to comment on their Instagram. Just because you don't agree with someone's political post on Facebook doesn't mean you have to comment some smart alack comment about how stupid you think they are. (You shouldn’t be posting about politics anyways.)

You are only belittling someone when you say hurtful comments over the internet. You are making that person hate that part of themselves. They are now trying to change themselves even though who they are right now is perfectly fine. You make them feel like who they are now, is not who they are supposed to be. You make them feel as if they don’t fit in with everyone else.

If you make fun of someone online, whether it be about their appearance, their personal life, their sexuality, or their beliefs, you are a bully.

If you are going to talk crap about someone, at least tag them on Facebook, Instagram and @ them on Twitter. Don’t be a wuss about it.

You know what is even better? You can be an adult about things and confront them in person about what has been bothering you.

Don’t hide your ugly attitude behind some cheap computer.

To those who are being bashed and bullied online:

Do not be afraid to stick up for yourself. You do not need to conform to what people say you need to be. You can be whoever you want to be. You have every single right to be yourself.

Haters are always going to hate.

I'm A Woman And You Can't Convince Me Breastfeeding In Public Is OK In 2019

Sorry, not sorry.


Lately, I have seen so many people going off on social media about how people shouldn't be upset with mothers breastfeeding in public. You know what? I disagree.

There's a huge difference between being modest while breastfeeding and just being straight up careless, trashy and disrespectful to those around you. Why don't you try popping out a boob without a baby attached to it and see how long it takes for you to get arrested for public indecency? Strange how that works, right?

So many people talking about it bring up the point of how we shouldn't "sexualize" breastfeeding and seeing a woman's breasts while doing so. Actually, all of these people are missing the point. It's not sexual, it's just purely immodest and disrespectful.

If you see a girl in a shirt cut too low, you call her a slut. If you see a celebrity post a nude photo, you call them immodest and a terrible role model. What makes you think that pulling out a breast in the middle of public is different, regardless of what you're doing with it?

If I'm eating in a restaurant, I would be disgusted if the person at the table next to me had their bare feet out while they were eating. It's just not appropriate. Neither is pulling out your breast for the entire general public to see.

Nobody asked you to put a blanket over your kid's head to feed them. Nobody asked you to go feed them in a dirty bathroom. But you don't need to basically be topless to feed your kid. Growing up, I watched my mom feed my younger siblings in public. She never shied away from it, but the way she did it was always tasteful and never drew attention. She would cover herself up while doing it. She would make sure that nothing inappropriate could be seen. She was lowkey about it.

Mindblowing, right? Wait, you can actually breastfeed in public and not have to show everyone what you're doing? What a revolutionary idea!

There is nothing wrong with feeding your baby. It's something you need to do, it's a part of life. But there is definitely something wrong with thinking it's fine to expose yourself to the entire world while doing it. Nobody wants to see it. Nobody cares if you're feeding your kid. Nobody cares if you're trying to make some sort of weird "feminist" statement by showing them your boobs.

Cover up. Be modest. Be mindful. Be respectful. Don't want to see my boobs? Good, I don't want to see yours either. Hard to believe, I know.

Donald Trump Shutting Down The Government Is Just Like A 5-Year-Old Child Throwing A Temper Tantrum

Donald Trump's political actions are shockingly similar to those of a small child.


"Mommy I'm going to hold my breath until I get what I want" was a quote you could hear me saying when I was around five years old. However, unlike President Trump, I outgrew throwing petty temper tantrums when I was a child.

On December 22, 2018, Donald Trump issued a government shutdown until he was granted $5 billion for his U.S.-Mexico border wall. This shutdown, lasting for a total of 35 days, devastated 420,000 federal employees as they were required to work without immediate compensation.

In this case, instead of Trump holding his breath until he gets what he wants, he withholds the paychecks of thousands of people with families to support. In response to this shutdown, GoFundMe launched a campaign to help financially compensate government workers, raising over $90,000 for over 1,000 people in just two days.

Pictured above is just one example of the many GoFundMe's created to help those Trump victimized with the government shutdown. Donald Trump's temper tantrum affected parents, children, friends, and family of government employees in a range of departments which are the Department of Treasury, Agriculture, Housing and Urban Development, Transportation, Commerce, Justice, as well as the Department of State, Department of the Interior and Homeland Security.

While I wholeheartedly agree that immigration into the United State's is a very pressing issue, I believe there are better ways to tackle this problem than simply building a wall. However, whether you are a supporter of Trump's Border Wall or not, most can agree that throwing a petty temper tantrum is not the way a politician, let alone a President, should act. Shutting down the government until they agree to build a U.S.-Mexico border wall devastated over 420,000 people and there is no excuse for it.
