I have another Facebook-related public service announcement, you guys. And I'm pretty sure y'all are reasonable adults, so just take this as venting and not as criticism of you all or anything.
I strongly object to people using "FML." The kind of posts that people end with "fml" are, in my experience, not exactly related to life-ruining events. The post that set me off was about an acquaintance leaving her ill-trained and hyperactive dog home alone for twelve hours and the dog destroyed something, which was related in very irritated language and ended with "fml." Really? A dog destroying some cushions on your tacky-looking-anyway couch fucks your life? How about some goddamn perspective?
Here are a few examples of posts I'd be okay with seeing:
- OMG, rebels are breaking into my home and killing my family in front of me. FML.
- I live in a country that still considers women property and I can neither vote nor own land. FML.
- I was raped and am now being threatened by my own family with an honor killing. FML.
What do you all think? Do you use "fml"? Do you object to it too?
