Is The New “Cyber-Bullying”?

Do you feel “shamed” by other girls on the internet? I look into a new meme that some are saying is the new “cyber-bullying.”

I know this has been around for awhile but I just discovered the “Hey Girls, did you know that…” meme. I was looking at a few of the pictures and I will admit it, I was laughing.

I decided to keep searching and I found an article from Good Morning America that talked about this craze and how it is now being referred to as “slut-shaming.” I was stunned! I thought that most of these memes were immature and creative but there were a few that provided a positive message.

I began to feel bad because I HATE cyber bullies and I always try to encourage safe internet use but here I was liking this new trend. I thought I would ask you what you thought.

Are these pictures just another way for girls to “shame” other girls? Is it cyber-bullying or are these messages some young girls need to hear? Let me know what you think and we will talk about it on the show tomorrow!

  1. It’s whatever people want them to be, like all memes. Self expression?
    It could be negative or meaningless slut shame, a moral, a joke.

    I don’t like to tell guys I play x-box because most of the time they act like I pretend to like it to get them to like me..? Then my lack of shooter skill only “proves their point” somehow… So when I see things like that I get upset because games are for everyone.
