First, let me say that I am creeped out that I am putting this dude's picture on my blog.
But, there is a purpose, even a lesson that goes with it.
I am a former teacher, so there is always a lesson.
If you don't know who this guy is, he WAS a Representative in the U.S. Congress until this married father decided to post this bathroom flexing picture on Craigslist looking for a date.
He recently resigned and didn't get a date.
And is now most certainly in the dog house with his horrified wife.
When I saw this story this morning, it reminded me of a conversation I had with my sister a few weeks ago. She has a teenage daughter and is very close with a lot of teen girls.
Apparently, this taking your shirt off and taking a picture of yourself thing is pretty popular with the young adult crowd.
(From our former Rep. up there, maybe it is popular with the adult crowd too.)
It is very common for a boy to meet a girl and then text her a picture of himself after they exchange phone numbers.
And guess what the most common photo that these high school and college age boys are sending?
It is just like the creepy guy above.
They apparently get out of the shower, do a few push-ups (total guess there), fix their hair and then take a shirtless flexy pose.
I am sorry but- Ewwwwwwwww!
Even if you body is perfect boys, that is just creepy.
So, fellow moms of boys- if your boys are in this age bracket, let them know that every other guy out there is posing like our Representative and it would be better to be original and charm the girls with personality and smarts instead of a creepy photo.
