People! Stop Being So F*ucking Creepy On Social Media!

PSA: Stop Being So F*Cking Creepy On Social Media!

No, I don't want to "warm your ears," so just stop asking!

With my class schedule, keeping up with my friends can be really difficult. If I'm not in class, I'm doing homework; when I'm not doing homework, I'm sleeping; and if I'm not doing either of those things, I'm either working or siting up in bed at 1 A.M. After about eight weeks of this, I decided I needed to make a change and find some friends who were awake at the same times I was. After a few minutes on the Google Play Store, I found an app called "MeetMe."

Unlike Tinder, MeetMe was specifically advertised as a friend-making app, not unlike a reverse Facebook. People fill out their profiles, mark what they're looking for, participate in "discussions," and send messages to other users. It's pretty simplistic, but as a woman on the site, I was sure to both mark that I was in a relationship and mention that I was only looking for friends in my bio. I thought that I might be safe from sexual advances, but I couldn't be more wrong.

I mean, my profile picture was pretty simplistic!

Well, maybe that photo confused some people. The red lipstick could be misinterpreted by someone with the wrong idea. What about my bio? Maybe I wasn't clear enough with my intentions.

...Well, maybe I didn't mean that? Maybe I put in my profile that I was looking to date as well?

Raven Machie- MeetMe bio

No. No I didn't. Seems like a pretty simple profile if you ask me. I should be getting pretty platonic conversations, hopefully making some friendships, even meeting up with some people with a sleep schedule as odd as mine, right?

I wish. I got worse messages from men and women through MeetMe than I ever received from Tinder. Every third message was a comment on my looks.

A request for sex.

A comment on my breasts (because my showing even a half inch of cleavage is obviously an invitation to comment on them).

A request for other sexual acts.

Or a man one-and-a-half times older than me throwing around insults whenever I make a public post reminding others to love and care for themselves. God forbid I post something reminding people to reach out to their loved ones if they need support, right?

To put it bluntly, it was both surprising and horrifying. What in the world drove these people to act like this? Even if my profile was raunchy, even if it was filled with scantly-clad pictures of me and my friends, it is not an invitation to comment on my body in a sexual manner without my consent. Even if my cleavage may have been visible in a picture, a person has no right to say they want to have "fun" with my body. It's disgusting, and it needs to stop.

But maybe it was just me. Maybe I'm just doing something wrong. With this in mind, I asked my fellow Odyssey creators to see if they had any stories.

One person responded almost immediately. "Before I went to freshman orientation, a boy from [Boise State University] found me on Instagram through the Class of 2020 Facebook page and messaged me asking if I wanted to hook up at orientation. Terrifying."

Another writer remembers two experiences of people being... less than appropriate.

"A guys sent me [this] last night. The first part of the message was him saying 'you don't seem very interested in me but maybe it'll change your mind if you know I have a big c***.'" To be honest, her response was far nicer than what mine would have been.

Casey Wheat- Creeper on Snapchat pt 1

He even goes on to acknowledge that his actions were inappropriate, but hey! Social media, right?

Her second story is four words long, but every woman (and some men) on social media knows this pain.

So seriously people, stop being so f*cking creepy. Stop commenting on the way we look, stop making crude jokes about our bodies, stop being rude, and just act like a civil human being. It's really not that hard.

    Spring is coming and so is a new Instagram feed!

    Goodbye to the pictures with the stylish fur coats and hello to the pictures with the flowing sundresses or flowing ocean waters! Often times in New Jersey, I hear people talk about how there's nothing to do. While it may be hard to find something within walking distance, that doesn't mean there are no places to explore! New Jersey is a beautiful state with so much to offer, and if you're looking to spice up your Instagram aesthetic, looking for photography worthy places, or just looking for some beautiful locations to explore, you've come to the right place.

    1. Liberty State Park

    Jersey City, New Jersey

    Liberty State Park

    Known for its stunning view of New York City, Liberty State Park is the perfect place for the perfect picture. It has the perfect combination of city, bay, and greenery to let your imagination and photography skills run wild. It's great for any type of photo, or even beautiful enough for a nice morning of an afternoon stroll. We're lucky that we live so close to one of the most famous cities in the world - we should take advantage of it!

    2. Ideal Beach

    One of my favorite places to visit with friends is Ideal Beach, located in Keansburg. We've seen the sunrise and sunset there together. In fact, the day after a tough break up my friends took me here to make me feel better and its beauty really did take my mind off of things. The East Coast isn't known for the sun setting on the beach, so the Ideal Beach truly is.... Ideal. If you go on a day with clear skies, you may even get a glimpse of the city at the horizon. With smooth water, smooth sand, and beautiful views, what more can you ask for?

    3. Grounds for Sculpture

    Hamilton, New Jersey

    https://jenniferlarsenphoto.com/blog/julia-scott-grounds-for-sculpture-engagement-session-hamilton-nj/

    This place is like a dream. Grounds for Sculptures gives off fairy tale vibes, and is often times a place couples go to for engagement photos! If you're not quite there yet, don't be alarmed. Grounds for Sculpture is perfect for any type of photo, or even just a relaxing day. If you're in the mood for a place with beautiful gardens and sculptures in one, this is definitely a place to check out.

    4. Stairway to Heaven

    Vernon, New Jersey

    https://www.pinterest.com/pin/387380005430937827/

    Not as famous as the Led Zeppelin song, but it'll do. This hiking trail in Vernon is about 2.9 miles long, with beautiful flowers and grass surrounding it. If the beauty of it hasn't convinced you to check it out yet, I know what will. Dogs. Your best bud can come along for the ride, and if you don't have one you can still get lucky and possibly run into a cute Golden Retriever along the way. If you're more of a cat person, the climbs, waterfalls, views, and rocks should be enough to make this one of the best hikes you've been on.

    5. Botanical Gardens 

    Ringwood, New Jersey

    http://www.jasminegardeninn.com/1933/garden/incredible-new-jersey-botanical-gardens-nj-botanical-gardens-ringwoood-nj-3-things-to-do-see-in-nj/

    Botanical Gardens are a dream, and one of New Jersey's finest are located right in Ringwood. This is another place known for wedding photos, or even weddings themselves, showing how it really is the spitting image of a fairy-tale come to life. If you're looking for even a cute day date, this is definitely the place to go. Walk around and enjoy the beautiful flowers, water, rocks, and just overall nature of these gardens.

    6. Verona Park

    Verona, New Jersey

    For a more casual day, try Verona Park. It has perfect grass space for a nice picnic and beautiful scenery for the perfect picture. You can also rent little boats to use in the lake for a bit, including ones that look like swans. This is the perfect park to go to when you just want to unplug from reality for a bit and enjoy what New Jersey has to offer.

    7. Round Valley State Park

    Lebanon, New Jersey

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WIJsYmkMhEg

    This place is great for a number of reasons. For one, there's a hiking trail that leads out to this beautiful scenic view. There are also picnic areas for relaxing, and a "fake" beach nearby to swim in! It's great for any type of day - whether you want to take pictures, spend time with friends, go on a date, or have a nice family day.

    8. Duke Farms

    Hillsborough, New Jersey

    https://www.flickr.com/photos/quintanomedia/14814264272/in/photolist-oz5YDw-ovUjsk-y17RhK-xLwPJs-sF23M-aotsnQ-3Zadx-KSrH4-hDSoZ-aeJmiB-aeJnLc-aeMbXE-aeJmac-aeJmrv-4R7Vaw-is4PM1-4R3KdV-2k7DnZ-75rMns-phQpAU-aqxVgu-dkST3L-8MMgMz-oKQsQL-8pntkL-frWWJA-fwScvd-frX6DY-xMo5BP-frRtER-frGTPt-frGPEV-frXaZ9-xNmpUe-53KkZ-fiFECL-5AEjZ9-xDRG7d-5AYmGE-rBSCFA-xwCNvR-5ayNTt-8pjhrx-8pntfb-8pnth9-92X2e-frGDpe-6Ng99s-frX1mU-frGFRi

    Duke Farms is another great place where nature captivates you enough on its own. While sunflower season is around mid-August, Duke Farms offers plenty of other treats such as gardens, lakes, wildlife, and more! You'll be sure to rack up the likes after a day here.

    9. Colonial Park 

    Somerset, New Jersey

    http://www.somersetcountyparks.org/newsReleases/june/RoseDay.html

    Clearly, I seem to love gardens, but this is the Garden State after all! Colonial Park in Somerset provides beautiful landscaping for you to stroll through and pose through. It also displays historical sculptures and is on the Delaware and Raritan Canal as well as the Milestone River. With beauty and history, this place is essential for any New Jersey resident to visit.

    10. Lambertville

    Lambertville, New Jersey

    https://theculturetrip.com/north-america/usa/new-jersey/articles/eating-out-in-lambertville-nj-top-10-local-restaurants/

    Lastly, experience a good old fashion downtown. Lambertville offers a lot of aesthetically pleasing shops and restaurants, giving any picture a cute suburban feel. The best part is that it's only two minutes away from New Hope, PA. It may be no New Jersey, but New Hope is another beautiful downtown area that you definitely need to spend a Saturday afternoon exploring.
