The other day I got a Facebook friend request. The name wasn’t familiar, so I checked the person’s profile picture to see if that would jog my memory. But instead of a picture of a person, there was a picture of an ultrasound. I don’t think I went to high school with any ultrasounds, so I should probably deny the request, right?
Plenty of my friends have kids. I like kids, as long as they’re not snotting on me or anything. But I don’t want to be friends with a fetus on Facebook. For that matter, I also don’t want to be friends with a couple making out with each other. I’m happy to be friends with two people who happen to be in a relationship with each other, but I really like individuals who each get their own picture. Posting a picture of your unborn kid and having it represent you on the internet is sort of like saying “Hi! I’m solely defined by my ability to procreate! What’s your name?”
Sorry! This poll is now closed.
