Fantastic. Well this certainly helps restore my faith in society. It's being hashtagged in social media sites and is a "Trending Topic" on FaceBook. How many underage kids are going to try to "be cool" and follow these trends?

www.gq.com...

This crap is being shoved down our throats. No wonder so many of my friends and family have separated themselves from social media. Crap like this is societal pollution, I have nothing wrong with human anatomy or sex or any of it, as long as it's 2 consenting people who are adults. But promoting these trends with hashtags and plastering it all over Facebook and whatever else is not sitting well with me.

Today, it seems like everything has to be sexualized and over-sold to us. The media is frickin disgusting. Looking at the direction society seems to be heading, I'm afraid to have children.

Yes, we can just ignore these things and move on, but this is absurd. I bet if we were to analyze the data, a nice percentage of the people using this hashtag/ "Trending Topic" are under the age of consent. The younger crowds are more active in social media and technology in general, AND are much more easily influenced. They often don't realize the level of impact decisions can have on the rest of their life. What if you have a falling out with the person you send it to, and now they are blackmailing you or embarrassing you with their friends? You might say "Shouldn't have sent it", well when you were 13 or 14 or whatever adolescent age like that, did you ever make a mistake you wish you could take back? They won't get that chance. This shouldn't even be a "National" day.

This is just sickening.

The "dudes" of today are wearing ponytails (I'm not talking about the Vietnam Veteran - style, if you know what I mean, I'm talking about the stupid man-bun), and the edgy chicks are shaving their heads. It's all very confusing, I'm sure there are reasons some of these trends and topics are being pushed to the forefront and being labeled "Trending Topics", even though they are only "Trending" because FaceBook is in bed with certain groups and wants to tend to their wishes.

Anyway, I didn't mean to digress talking about man-buns and women shaving their heads (nothing inherently wrong with it, I'm not hating on you if that is your style, but it goes to show how easily a trend can get momentum AND helps fuel the fire of the whole sexual identity-confusion thing we're seeing today.

Blood pressure through the roof, ending my rant here but looking forward to discussing this with my fellow ATSrs.

If I ever have a bun on my head, it'll be under a 1/2 of hamburger, covered with onions and pickles and ketsup.

Though why I would ever want to put a tasty hamburger on my head is a mystery.

We're getting older and society is changing. Things have moved quite rapid in the last ten years and things that are acceptable now would have offended the majority of people a decade ago.

As long as I'm not expected to join in these shenanigans or forced to wear a bun wig, then live and let live. Detach yourself from social media and advise friends of a similar ilk to do so as well.

To be fair, I didn't know anything about 'send a nude' day, until I read this thread. It isn't being splattered all over the mainstream channels.

Thanks for your comment - I've been more active on social media than I usually am because of MS804 EgyptAir tragedy and talking with friends on FaceBook. I guess I get personally upset about these "trending topics" because I have a little sister who is easily influenced and I worry. Anyway, I value your advice and think you are right about "live and let live". Thanks.

I love that show. Currently making my way through Netflix's season, which is only slightly less good that the original 3 seasons.

Apparently, facebook doesn't like breastfeeding boobies either.

Wonder if they're down with the blue-footed ones?

Just sent everyone I know a pic, #ankles, #wrists, #neck and they kept saying I am behind the times and a prude!

This day is a no-go for the fully clothed and I don't use social media so I won't be looking for any friends in their birthday suit, either!
If someone used this stupid day to send me a naked pic, I'd get a restraint order on them.

Oh, wow........how do the websites even allow this sort of thing?? Underage people are allowed to use them, so such shouldn't be acceptable. Proof, right there, that they want to corrupt the kids! SO glad mine aren't into that sort of nonsense! It's a real blessing to have teens that are modest, and actually know when something isn't appropriate.
