All this is fine, including compliments on appearance as long as it is genuine and persons limit themselves. Some say it repeatedly. Sometimes you get people saying “Hey Babes”, or “You are hot and sexy” without any preamble. Of the two categories I prefer the second I think, because you can tell them off directly, report and block them. Some of these are in my young son’s age group! It is offensive, and in my book it qualifies as sexual harassment! No less! Some ask for a hug, some for a kiss, via emoticons. Yes this happens. Some ask you to attach a webcam to flash at you! In a society where crime against women has peaked, this is scary!
Some well wishers tell you not to be so active. Not to make bold remarks, not to put up your pictures. I refuse to listen to them! I have every right to speak my mind, and every right to share thoughts with genuine like minded friends. I have very interesting discussions with quite a few of my social media friends for whom I have developed great affection. I like sharing my pictures so I will continue to do so!
Think I am a Narcissus incarnate? Maybe I am. Think I will meet Nemesis? Maybe I will. And when I do, I will take her head on. I am what I am, I love myself; and sick men and women will not stop me from doing anything that is not unlawful!
Moralistic self righteous persons can just deal with my attitude!
Nothing in this post applies to my close and dear friends on the social media; I am sure they know who they are. I have met genuine, warm, kind, wonderful people out there for whom I have great regard, respect and even love!
It is indeed sad that women are so vulnerable. All of womankind forms a sisterhood, a sorority. Sisters help and support one another! And we are strong! Better believe it! If by mischance we are wronged, we will help each other stand up, recover and continue.
I feel blessed to have men in my life who are supportive of their women, who love their women, who can’t live without their women. There are men who are decent, kind and good. I love them, each in a special way. This includes my social media friends.
That is all I have to say. I needed to vent. It’s my personal blog.
