I was personally messaged that my video had been posted on Overly Sensitive Military Wives, a group on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/#!/Dependopotomus
Since my video made it on a site to be ridiculed and judged, I thought why not then state the site. Although I never mentioned the specific site in my video, so many followers from Overly Sensitive Military Wives from facebook decided to attack me for making the video. BRAVO! Do you all feel a sense of satisfaction now?
Some of the comments that were posted on the video basically defended the group as a place to vent because of the stresses of being a military wife. I am sorry but sending the message that talking about others to relieve stress is acceptable, is completely wrong. Others stated that it is ok to post and comment on that site because after all they are only making fun of themselves...lol. Not really... then post your own pictures and leave those alone at the PX or Commissary. I now understand why some military wives choose to stay in their homes and never leave, because of people like them.
I stand by my video and SO what if I use "LIKE" and "UM" in my video and my teeth are not perfectly straight!! I made the video to prove a point. BULLYING exists among Military Wives. It isn't about rank or anything else you all assumed it was about.
**I admit I was a fan of the site until it started to cross so many lines**
OSMW fans write:
Dear OSMW creator, I did not ask you to post my video on your page to be ridiculed by your cult of negative and rather ignorant people. As you saw, your SITE was never mentioned in my video and it was not MY FAULT that you assumed it was YOU!
By the way you function since you are very predictable:
You sat there, wrote an abstract about what the video is about and asked your followers to make comments, but making sure they all post valid arguments so that you don't sound uneducated. But what you really got was a bunch of people posting ridiculous comments about how they are not wives who sit in pjs all day putting others down. I am sure you posted things about what I looked like and sounded like, TYPICAL POST ON YOUR PAGE. Thank you for proving my point, you continue to bully wives. Making statements about overweight people, "frumpy wives," and people who carry or wear military inspired clothing and purses. I hope you watched the spoof at the end because this is really the image you are setting forth by your site. Military wives who have nothing better to do with their time.
OSMW Rules: No hate speech or slang. Instant banning. Singling out a specific person is not tolarated if the intent is meant maliciously. (Someone you know that you want to get even with.)
Isn't this what you are doing on your page????
Singled me out with no reason!
All this talk about how we are supposed to "REPRESENT" the military because afterall our husbands are wearing the uniform....is looking a little grey at the moment. Many of the followers who commented on my video stated that because we are military spouses we should be held at a higher standard, translation: We should not look like a "hot-mess" at the commissary because God forbid the fashion police is going to fine us and tell us to get out! But since I am representing my husband in uniform, it is ok to join pages like this to talk bad about overweight people and how they dress? THIS is how you represent your man in UNIFORM?? Afterall, all of your names appear on that site, even when you post a picture or a rude comment!
This tornado of events will not end because I am sure someone will post below how wrong my blog was and defend the site saying it is something positive. It is a site that helps people get through deployment, really? It is a page that represents military spouses today, really? It allows women to vent, give me a break!
As for another comment made about how military spouses do not have busy lives, I laugh at you. Not all military wives have time on their hands, some of us work, go to school, take care of our children, or are in the military themselves. To assume we don't have hardships if we are stay at home moms, blows my mind. Do you know what goes on in everyone's lives?? How about hardships outside of our immediate families?
Stand up for what you believe in always, even if you are the last one standing. Thank you for reading!!!
To think that the CREATOR of this site is a MEMBER OF THE U.S. MILITARY....this is the representation of the MILITARY?? GOD HELP US ALL.
FURTHERMORE here are their warning labels:
"To the misguided souls who believe this is a bashing site: Consider the bigger picture. Its not just about fat people, but big people in small clothing. Its not just about cheaters but exposing multiple offenders. Its not just ACU purses & bumper stickers but rolling around town with a target on your shoulder or car. Its all about seeing some of these things within ourselves, and laughing. Don't be hurt, move on.
Be aware that there will be swearing and people will make fun of others. It's all in good fun and thats the end for warnings :)"
To have to post a warning label on the site, just proves that they had to make an excuse to act like ignorant people.
IT IS ALL IN GOOD FUN UNTIL SOMEONE GETS HURT.
Disclaimer*** I am a U.S. Military Spouse and proud of it. I never stated that I wear my husband's rank. I choose to not wear ACU patterned accessories and I am quite fit. I am not perfect and I am happy that I am not. I am currently a STAY at Home Mother and PROUD OF IT.
Judge me for NOT JOINING THE MAJORITY, make false claims if it makes you feel better!! IF YOU CHOOSE to post my picture, make sure to get one where I am having a bad hair day. It will at least get you to talk about me.
