I don't need to see the picture of what you had to eat tonight
I don't need to see the picture of your new born baby
I don't need to see the photo of your day out
I don't need to see the photo of the latest crafts you've made
I don't need to see the photo of your family pet
But I like to see the above
I like to see what you ate and where
I like to see the photo of your new born, I asked after all
I like to see the photo of your day out as I'm considering going there myself
I like to see the photo of the crafts you've made as I might like to make them myself
I like to see the photo of your family pet as I post numerous photos of mine
But I don't need to see
A photo of a woman's period stain
A woman breast feeding
A child being abused by their nanny
Someone being shot/raped/beaten to death
An animal kept in cruel conditions
Because I don't need to see images that either cause distress or are purely private moments, no matter how cruel or beautiful it is.
We've already had beheading videos and images doing the rounds, we all now you can access people have sex on the internet, both child and adult, but those images aren't considered appropriate for social media sites and are blocked, reported and removed.
I don't block or report the latest photo that so many are raving about (period stains) but I choose to remove it from my timeline. I'm not offended, I am a women, it happens to all of us, but I don't need to see it.
I know what is going on in the world, but I don't need to see endless images posted by endless people without any explanation as to why they've shared it, their reason's behind it, their thoughts and feelings on it and it's actually quite OK to talk about it and mention 'that picture' of the women with the period stained sheet and pants, discuss how the image makes one feel, the purpose of posting the photo but we don't need to keep posting the photo or do we?
Skid marks in knickers/poo in the toilet? is that beautiful? it's natural but I don't need to see photos of that either.
