Believe all women? When they can be this cruel, heartless, petty and shallow? Pfffft.
Imagine this, you find an engagement ring in your partner’s nightstand but you don’t like it. So you go to social media. That’s what one woman did. In fact, she posted it to a Facebook page completely devoted to criticizing engagement rings. On top of that, it’s becoming a popular trend.
It’s becoming more and more popular on social media.
“I think it’s extremely hurtful and it’s something that should not be going on,” says NDSU Student, Olivia Hammerschmidt.
And you’ve probably never heard of it before.
“I just heard about it today,” says Hammerschmidt.
People are angry at this woman who found her engagement ring and bashed it on Facebook
But you’d hope that if the relationship is right, even a less-than-glorious ring will be celebrated. It’s about love not diamonds, right? That was not the case for one couple. There’s uproar on Reddit in response to a woman who decided to ‘roast’ her engagement ring online, posting a photo in a Facebook group with the caption ‘Ewwwww’.
‘Self shame Friday here I come,’ wrote the mystery woman, along with a photo of a sparkly ring. ‘Found this in the BF’s nightstand. Not a fan. ‘Please roast and then tell me how to tactfully say no you need to go get something different.’ (Picture: EvilCowEater/Reddit) At least she wanted to be tactful. That Facebook post was shared on Reddit, where it quickly racked up criticism. ‘This is the saddest thing I’ve seen on this sub,’ wrote one Redditor.
‘It’s one thing when it’s a total stranger, but when someone that’s supposed to love you unconditionally acts like a grifter it’s just plain sad.’ ‘I hope he sees this, and then RUNS,’ wrote another.
Some women will not be able to see the connection I’ve made between #MeToo and ring shaming.
If a woman can humiliate the man they ostensibly love, in public, what else are they capable of?
