han was responding to my question.
On closer inspection it does indeed appear that that’s our dear Brittney. What a relief. For a second I thought there was a friend pathetic enough to aid Brittney in her attempt at relationship suicide.
Dammit *my* question.
In an attempt to post my anonymous two cents in another post without getting too personally involved on the issue of dog sizes, I got too clever for myself and forgot to swap back. Apologies :S
Public is the new private. When in human history have more people eased their interpersonal angst by shouting into a megaphone. Somehow our collective judgment is what consoles her. Sensical? No. The new norm? Yes.
While she’s an idiot to publish this on facebook (particularly before telling her boyfriend), it’s endlessly amusing to me that so many people write comments here as if she’s a slut who sleeps around. Wake up and join the 21st century, people. Making unwise facebook posts and having an unplanned pregancy does not = sleeping around.
You’re anonymous whether you change your screen name or not…?
You say “so many people write comments here as if she’s a slut who sleeps around”? Firstly, by calling her a slut it means she’s sleeping around, no need to define the meaning of a word you’ve already used, you’re effectively saying slut slut. Secondly, there are only THREE out of 40 comments insinuating this girl is a slut. You’re an idiot.
Besides, I think we have every right to make any assumption we want to about someone stupid enough to post a picture of a positive pregnancy test for the world to see before they’ve even told the supposed father.
Dirty pirate hooker, you’re wrong. ‘Slut’ implies somebody who has sex thoughtlessly/often, whereas ‘sleeping around’ implies sleeping with a large number of people. You can be a slut without sleeping around.
You have every right to make whichever assumptions you choose, but I have an equal right to point out that this particular assumption is without any merit at all in this case. And – as a frequent reader of lamebook – it seems to me that any post which implies that a woman has sex is invariably followed by comments suggesting that the woman is slutty. There are some cave-dwelling lamebook readers, without doubt.
Arguing a point without calling people names is a valuable grown-up skill: look into it.
It would appear that you find it hugely satisfying, given your evident appetite for it. You may need to admit, at some point, that urbandictionary.com is not necessarily the final authority on language. You might also consider that people use words differently to you, and that this isn’t necessarily the end of the world.
In any event, your desire to nitpick over semantics really doesn’t diminish my initial point: that sharing a pregnancy test online (and before telling the father) does not mean that the woman in question is promiscuous, despite what some lamebook readers might think.
For God’s sake, people. Any female who posts her positive pregnancy test to the world before telling the father, who will obviously find out now in any case, should not be breeding. That’s the issue, not whether or not she’s promiscuous from a sexual or attention seeking perspective. Who cares if she’s single or married, slut ot not, she’s incredibly moronic.
