BJ'S BLOG 07/26/13 "Texting Nude Pictures"
Earlier this week, we received a message from a Rock-A-Holic named Mandy who was very angry over something her boyfriend of four years did!
He recently admitted to her that when he was hanging out with his two best friends, he showed them naked pictures of Mandy that she had texted him. She was furious but he didn’t see what the big deal was because he didn’t forward the pictures to them! His excuse was that after a few drinks his buddies showed him pictures of their ladies and they pressured him to show some of Mandy.
She is so embarrassed that she doesn’t even want to see his friends now that they have seen her naked but her boyfriend keeps telling her it’s not a big deal. Mandy wanted to know if she is overacting or if she is in the right.
I do think there is a double standard when it comes to this because if it was a woman showing off naked pictures of her boyfriend, men would be expected to brush it off. Also, this is a good example for other woman and even men as to why it’s not always a good idea to send naked pictures of yourself to anyone because once they are sent, they are out there forever. At least use Snapchat!
However, I do think her boyfriend was acting like an idiot for two reasons; one he show a picture of the person he is in a serious relationship with in a vulnerable position to his friend, then his second mistake was to tell her about it.
I know I talk about being an h-hole but I’ve learned that some women don’t really want to hear the truth about certain things. If you’ve done something that you know is wrong, either don’t tell them or be accountable. Don’t try to make an excuse for your dumb behavior, own up to it.
