Controversy over at Pinterest

I guess I wasn't surprised a few people would be offended by this or this. I lost about 500 or more followers after posting- to which I replied to myself,  "That's one way of weeding out the naysayers!"  (I look at the followers number because it is right there when I open my page and I am mildly curious only).

There were a few others that created even more of  spark but when I went to get them to post them on this blog they had "disappeared"  (presumably deleted by Pinterest).

I started my Pinterest account for the simple facts that it was taking up too much space on my computer to store all the photos I fell in love with online and my blog was not user friendly (It is here but I'm not posting to it anymore).  I thought it would be fun to have a "circle" of people with similar interests also.  For the most part it has turned out that way but every once in a while I am surprised by the brutally negative comments (which ironically mostly involve God or religion, Christianity, in particular).

Just recently I lost a couple of hundred followers over this photo.  Shocking, really. To me, it is a beautiful photograph of two people in love.  Iman has a wondrous, statuesque body.  When I look at it I do not think of pornography in the slightest.

Someone asked me why I don't reply to the negative comments or delete them.

I don't believe in fighting fire with fire.

Be hopeful. Change is coming. The next generation is SO much more open minded and accepting of the many differences in others. I believe that if we keep spreading love and joy more people will appreciate and accept differences in people rather than cast them out. 

Treat others the way you want to be treated.  Even on Pinterest.  

Love will always win!



  1. yeah,... treat people equally as well...

  2. Another major determinant of the registered nurse salary in Maine is the employment location of an individual. Individuals residing in Bangor earn an average annual pay of $59,320 with the highest quarter division making $70,712 and the lowest quarter division gets $49,043. Employees in Portland receive a median salary of $66,628 per annum. The highest quarter division makes $79,424 while the lowest quarter division earns $55,085.

  3. I often see things on Pinterest that are from google and there are some things on google that I want to pin on my boards on Pinterest and I was wondering how to do it or if you even could when there was no "pin it" button on the website. I've seen the captions under a post say google images as a reference from where the picture came. Is it possible?

  4. I think it's so funny when people say that people shouldn't pin controversial stuff on pinterest, apparently we shouldn't be worrying our pretty little heads about stuff like that.........

  5. How long does the pinterest waiting list take?
    I want to join pinterest but I've been on the waiting list for days already! How long does it take for the request to be approved?

  6. I ridiculous! You would be shocked by the negative comments I've received. I think it's borderline bullying! I think people say whatever they want online because they don't have to face the person. It's like their true character comes out.


I love comments! Please share your thoughts...
