Today I have no cheery greeting to begin this post. Today I’m completely disgusted. Today I stubbled upon a completely shocking petition through people on Facebook, a petition that should not have to exist. This petition is attempting to have a Facebook page “Tortabilly” taken off the internet. This page is dedicated to putting the vintage culture into negative, a page dedicated to mocking those who have worked so hard to embrace themselves, a page that has taken people’s photos and posted them with derogatory comments, the photo to the right is just one example of this.
This is cyber bullying, and no one should have to suffer this horrible treatment, it is completely unacceptable that Facebook allows this to continue being online. While this has not directly effected myself, I know women from Australia who have had their photos stolen, and used on this offensive page, and it angers me so much, that it has hurt them, and hurts so many others who see this.
I love the vintage culture because its so accepting, you can be who you want to be without judgement, and learn to be the best version of you, that you can possibly be, and someone has taken this happiness and destroyed it for so many women. We cannot allow this to go on any longer, we should not allow this to go on. If you feel strongly about this, I urge you to sign the petition, and also report this horrid page.
