HEY GURLS by Dragimal HEY GURLS by Dragimal
Iíve been seeing this meme around lately, and thought Iíd put my thoughts out as well.

Being neutral me, I feel this is a good place to analyze both sides of the issue.

To look at the original side, the one pertaining to the very first meme (except it wasnít really a meme at the time), the girl is stating her opinion on this issue. There is nothing wrong with that. Everyone has their own opinion, and whether we agree or not, we have to just suck it up and accept that. She has every right to state her opinion.

At the same time, she has no right to be telling people what to do. Now, I canít really say sheís ďorderingĒ anyone to do or not do anything, but some people have interpreted it as such, so I feel I should put it out there as well. No one has the right to dictate someoneís life like that, and especially not on such a mundane level.

Now to move on to the opposing response (which could relate to either picture responses or text, it doesnít matter- they are all essentially the same. unless they are crack responses. then they are just plain funny. =D). They usually relate to being told what to do (already gone over above), or womenís rights. I can understand this side- I mean, it hardly seems fair that women canít show their boobs without being called a ďslutĒ, while men can flaunt their pecs while being cheered on into to sunset while riding a majestic white Arabian. Women want to let go, too. Those nudist colonies have got a pretty good point, in my opinion, but thatís my inner-hippie talking, and we ARENíT GOING DOWN THAT DARK PATH RIGHT NOW.

At the same time, I donít feel this is as much an issue of ďWe canít,Ē as much as, ďSociety thinks we canítĒ. Iíve heard that in a lot of places, itís perfectly legal for women not to wear shirts, itís just that women still feel the need to wear shirts.

Still, even if someone thinks that women should be allowed to go shirtless, he/she has no right to tell that original girl what to do, because it is her opinion, and if she chooses to not show her chest, thatís just fine. Likewise, she has no right to tell someone what to do, because if another girl wants to show her chest, thatís just fine.

Remember, guys-

We all grow up in different places, have different experiences, etc, etc.

Given that, we all come up with different opinions, and because of all this free will we are so kindly gifted, we are allowed to share these opinions, spark debates, share ideas, etc.

Itís what makes life interesting! Itís all really wonderful, when you think about it. The least we can do is respect everyoneís opinion, even if we donít agree (there is such a thing as a respectful debate).

If anyone actually finds this thing, he/she will probably have their own opinion about it, and maybe give said opinion, but you know what? Iíll be so happy, because they are expressing themselves!

Someone might even give me an art critique, because thatís just what happens sometimes. WHO KNOOOOOOWS~

Anyways, Iíll get off my soapbox now and go back to hiding in Homestuck. I just wanted to get this out there.

EDIT- Here's the original (it's the first one) [link]

EDIT 2- This is also great [link]

EDIT 3- OK, I'M SORRY, BUT THIS IS MY FAVORITE [link]

HAHAHAHAHA
That is hilarious :XD:
You are correct though, everyone has their different opinions, and different places of the world are going to feel differently about certain things.
