~ What the Hell Wednesday ~

When I was in high school ('89-'93) and it was senior portrait time we all had to go to the same place to have it done.  I actually have zero recollection of where it was or thinking about what I was going to wear or anything but I remember we had very little say about it all.  Now, apparently, schools allow their seniors to submit their own photos doing something which represents them - an activity they like doing, with their sports gear on, with their vehicle, whatever. 


I'm sure you've seen this story.  This girl at a high school in Denver submitted a photo which even her peers deemed inappropriate. 

Here's the picture:





  She's 18, I get it, but for your school yearbook?  This says, "My activites are looking pouty and gripping poles."

Now, on the flip side, they don't really need to be quite like this, either:



This says, "I like swinging, have no idea how to tame my cowlick, and haven't discovered mascara for my blond eyelashes yet."

C'mon.  Let's be honest.  You don't want to be remembered as the slut, do you?  Or do you...?

What the hell?

And in case you're kind of like, "I don't really see what's wrong with it", this is the second photo she submitted to the yearbook (which was also denied). 



WTH?  Amiright?

  2. I saw this pic posted on Huffington Post and couldn't believe this girl was serious and that her mother was supporting her. YES, she's gorgeous but it's for school not your own personal porn site. WTH indeed!

  3. This article basically sums up how I feel about this girl and so many young girls today. Time to bring back "pretty!" http://www.ncregister.com/blog/the-death-of-pretty
