Well, yesterday, I unfriended someone. And this was the post that did it:
|His comment is at the top of the post. I cut out his face/name to keep it anonymous.|
I almost commented. I almost called him out. But I decided to just hit that "unfriend" button instead. I have absolutely no room in my life or Facebook feed for someone like this.
Even if you object to the change because you think Jackson should stay on the $20 bill, the comment is completely ridiculous.
"No one will want to look at that ugly face!!!"
Since when did someone have to be attractive to be on money? Last I checked, individuals were selected based on their achievements and contributions to our nation's history. Harriet Tubman lived an extraordinary life and accomplished much against great odds. She deserves to be recognized for her contribution to our society.
Who cares if she doesn't have model looks?
Let's be honest, it's not like Andrew Jackson is that much of a looker either. And he was kind of a terrible person when you get right down to it. But apparently we can over look that because (at least in the pictures above) he's deemed more attractive than Harriet Tubman. Then again, it seems women's value hinges solely on their looks. We've been told that for decades. It hasn't changed yet.
As you might be able to tell, I'm still angry about this whole ordeal, and it's hours after I first read the post.
What makes you "unfriend" or "unfollow" someone?
