Refrigerator Raider? Amazing woman responds against bullies by viral photo

How scary can this be? Receive an email from a friend who says, "You're famous on the Internet!" When this was not your intention at all. For Caitlin Seida, writer of 24 years, was the wake up call that forced her to rethink their social media habits. In an essay entitled My embarrassing picture went viral ("My picture went viral shameful"), Seida told how he dealt with a row of bullies who made fun of her when her Facebook photo inadvertently spread online.


Seida discovered that the photo was broadcast in January, accumulating thousands of comments, but only he was speaking out of the picture after. The photo on which alerted her friend was taken in 2011, that year Seida had disguised for Halloween Lara Croft: Tom Rider. "I could not remember if I had put my private photo, but was now circulating on the Internet, and someone had written the words 'Fridge Raider' in it," said Seida to Yahoo Shine.


Initially, Seida thought the photo was funny. "I am a plus size woman, and had been a real shot, but not very favorable," he said. "I have also been treated with bullying all my life because at 14 I was diagnosed with polycystic ovary syndrome, a condition that causes weight gain." However, after reading the comments accompanying the photo, your laughter faded quickly.
"People wrote things like, 'Wow, she's fat" and "Why do people like her do not stop to exist?'" He said Seida. "In many ways, I understood the humor we all laughed at a funny photo online, but we seldom realize that the subject is a real person appears. At the same time, was totally destroyed."


After scrolling through hundreds of comments mocking his body, Seida called her friend Terri Jean, one photographer with legal knowledge, and between the two hatched a plan. Locate and confront the worst bullies, it was pretty easy task, considering that many had mentioned on Reddit, Tumblr, Twitter and Failblog using your Facebook account, making them easily identifiable. "I asked them why they were doing this and please stop share and comment on the photo," he explains.
Seida was surprised by what happened next. "While responding to my email, none of them apologized," he said. "One is surprised that his comments were traceable. In a way, it was confirmed that people were not as malicious as much as thoughtless."


Seida is just one example of how people are beginning to confront cyber bullies. In September 2012, Balpreet Kaur, a woman belonging to the Sikh religion, with a scraggly beard, had his picture taken in the Library of the Ohio State University without their knowledge. When Kaur found that the image was posted on the social networking site Reddit, spoke with his own comment: "Hey, guys, I'm Balpreet Kaur, the girl in the picture, I'm not embarrassed or humiliated by the attention (negative and positive) that drew that picture, because that's how I am. " His response urged many to reconsider their words and the person who initially posted the photo Kaur apologized. That same month, dtelad11 Reddit user discovered that a photo of him sitting on the floor of the subway with a computer in the legs accompanied by a caption that called it 'workaholic'. Dtelad11 commented on the matter, explaining that rarely given time to work on his doctoral thesis with a newborn at home, and then apologized for the inconvenience, beating his critics.


Seida has also secured the support of Internet helping to make peace with the photo and adjust their social media habits: she now regularly reviews its privacy settings Facebook account is aware of the pages you are given a " I like ", and does not accept friend requests from people you do not know. "I've also learned to speak up when I hear people making fun of the photos of others," he said. She is using her newfound fame to help others avoid the same fate. "I'm creating a website called I Feel Delicious (I feel delicious), an open forum where people can feel good without judgment," he said. "I chose the word 'delicious' because, unlike the word 'beautiful', conjures up images of diversity (flavors, textures and flavors), like people."

Tikker, the clock that tells the time of your death

If you were told that you're going to die tomorrow, what would you do in your final hours This question we sometimes make between jokes or just give flight to our imagination could be very present in our day to day if we wear a clock with counting down the time left.

"The life of each one of us does not have an expiration date and although they tend to avoid the argument, death is not a surprise to none and although not negotiable, it is life itself. This is why we must learn to love and seize every moment, following our hearts, "says Colting.

A questionnaire

However, before starting the clock, its future owner will have to answer a series of questions with no scientific basis on your medical and family history (cases of allergy or chronic diseases) and about their consumption habits (alcohol, smoke, diet), physical activity practice and the weight. After counting points the user will get the date of his death and the tikker will consume the remaining time.
'More than a deathwatch I consider it a sort of apparatus of happiness
"The idea of developing this experiment came after the death of grandfather, who made ​​me think about the frailty of life and made ​​me understand the importance of enjoying every moment, because if we were all aware that we would realize our end approaches certainly better choices. This is why more than a deathwatch I consider it a sort of apparatus of happiness ", as has the 'Daily Express'. For now, the only countdown is underway is the crowd funding website Kickstarter, where "tikker Team" - consisting Colting next to Gustaf Wollin Swedish designer and marketing expert Rebecca deRosa-expected raise about 18,500 euros before November 1 with sales of these watches. The price of each is 43 euros and offers the possibility to consult also the normal time, so that the holder can be secured better at what time it is and not how much time is left to die, but occasionally could use not bad take a look to realize that we must try to enjoy every moment of life. If the end is just a "gadget".  content7 the blog for you
