A Girl Is Over This Slut-Shaming Meme and Shares How Naughty Her Great Grandmother Was Back in The Day

A Tumblr user was tired of seeing this slut-shaming meme and decided to share how naughty her great grandmother was back in 1890.

Memes revolving around this topic have been circulating the internet for a while now and this girl is totally fed up with it. It’s always a picture of a very reserved and proper looking woman, with a caption saying something like, “*current year* I found a picture of your grandmother.” Then next to it, there’s a picture of a woman wearing minimal clothing posing in the mirror taking a selfie with that same caption, except now the year is about 70 years in the future.

I guess the creators of these memes are trying to say that women have become less “respectable” than they used to be. But Tumblr user ‘gallusrostromegalus’ claims this is entirely false! Read her post below:

See I’ve seen like 600 variations of this meme and I gotta tell you a Story.

The year is 2012. It’s Christmas. It’s the first year my sister and I are both home from college, and we’re feeling kind of nostalgic, so we take out the old family photo albums to remember everyone from times past. We’re all on the couch or the floor with hot chocolate and the Dog is curled up under the tree. It’s all very Normal Rockwell.

We’re going through my Mom’s side of the family, laughing at the pictures of Grandma putting wrapping paper on the dog, and grandpa pulling faces at the camera, when we find an old brown envelope.

“The f***? says my sister, because she’s been in to Great-Aunt Liz’s Rumballs, and I open the envelope. Inside are four tickets to the titanic, unused, and Mom tells us the story of how her ancestors ALMOST came over on the Titanic, but Great-Aunt Liz got the measles and forced everyone into quarantine, thus saving their lives.

The OTHER thing in the envelope are seven Photographs, dated 1890. They are my Great-Great Grandmother.

They are nudes.

They are NOT tasteful nudes.

Like, these are Violating-Terms-Of-Service-On-Most-Platforms- OBSCENE.

GGG had these taken waaaaay back in ye olden days, in order to convince her wayward husband to move back to England after he ditched her to party it up in Chicago.

I CANNOT TELL YOU HOW F**** HARD WE LAUGHED. Like, I think I passed out I was laughing so hard.

So yes, people have ALWAYS been like this, and your nudes will make for a hilarious family Christmas someday.
