Uproar Over Meghan McCain’s Tweet Pic…Over Reaction? Probably

October 16, 2009

US (ChattahBox) – Meghan McCain posted a picture of herself on tweet the other night, just a spontaneous picture of her in what was probably a pair of pajamas. The reaction it caused seems like it might have been just a bit of an over reaction.

The picture, shown above, has Meghan in a tank top, one that shows a great deal of cleavage. It looks like one of several tank tops I, myself own. I, like Meghan, wear them with sweats or pajama pants when I am lounging around the house. This is probably the case with most women in the Western world.

Yet, when the picture was posted, Meghan was forced to offer up the following Tweet:

“so I took a fun picture not thinking anything about what I was wearing but apparently anything other than a pantsuit I am a slut, this is.”

The anger at the photo apparently continued, and she said:

“when I am alone in my apartment, I wear tank tops and sweat pants, I had no idea this makes me a “slut”, I can’t even tell you how hurt I am.”

She has every right to be hurt. Being repeatedly called a slut because you posted a photograph of yourself in lounge wear is hardly appropriate.

I understand the position of the dissenters to an extent. Mainly, I understand that when something is posted online, it will be subject to criticism by anyone who sees and doesn’t like it.

I also understand that the photo itself is more than a little revealing, and given Meghan’s position as a prominent political commentator for the Daily Beast, she may have wanted to express some caution.

But that doesn’t make the ‘uproar’ any more ridiculous, or unnecessary, at least in this blogger’s opinion.

In the meantime, Meghan has taken down the photo, apologized to who she offended, and offering thanks to those that supported her. But not before the pic went far and wide onto the expanses of the Internet.

I suppose we should all look at it as proof of the petty insults that will be hurled for something as simple as a slightly racy photograph of a young woman. Those Tweeters should be ashamed of themselves.
