I deleted this because of anon hate, but you know what? I dont care.
This is my boyfriend. Hes a Marine heading to Afghanistan.
Sometimes hes my reason for sanity.
Sometimes hes the reason for my insanity.
And im immensely proud of how happy we look (even if the sun is blinding us) because the past few months, with him going through predeployment training a million states away, and me going through my daily stressors and mental/physical health concerns, have been so difficult and we’ve stuck through it together despite all odds.
you didn’t earn that cover,TAKE IT OFF.
Okay, I was going to ignore this, but it seriously bothered me so let me make a couple points:
Hi, if you would have taken the time to read the little thing I added with the photo, you would have learned that I previously posted this but had to delete it because I got a lot of hate. That said, don’t you think its incredibly rude to reblog my photo and add hate onto it, or tell me what to do?
Which brings me to point two: You do not know me and I do not know you. You do not know my relationship with my Marine, and likewise, I don’t know your relationship with yours.
Your Marine may feel its completely wrong for a significant other or non-Marine to wear any article of uniform, hey, that’s fine, I understand that completely. The thing is, I wasn’t impersonating a Marine or trying to portray myself as the same rank/status as my significant other, I was just having fun. I put the cover on for a split second to take a few photos. Then I took it off.
Point three is really for any MILSOs following me: Don’t be this girl. Don’t be the woman that is so bitter about everything and so stuck up and up tight that she has her husband’s EGA lodged so far up her anus she cannot seem to function. Don’t rain on other people’s parades. You don’t know their story or their situation or the relationship they share. Don’t be rude. My Marine and I are happy. This photo shows it. When other people are so bold as to reblog it and tell me to take his cover (that’s his hat, for all you non-military followers) off, it’s not only taking away MY happiness, it’s making you look like a complete idiot.
Newsflash, You’re completely right, I am not a Marine! I didn’t earn a cover, or an EGA!! But guess what sister, neither did you, so stop acting like you’re the MILSO Police and lighten up. It’s a photo on the internet of a couple you’ve never met. My gut instinct tells me you wouldn’t tell a girl at the birthday ball to take off a Marine’s cover for a photo op, so why are you telling me? (And hey, if you actually would, you have balls, congrats, but still see above where: YOU AREN’T THE MILSO POLICE.)
In conclusion: This photo is for fun. My relationship is fun. You don’t know me. Stop being pretentious.
Lolololol your “Marine.”
“My Marine,” is my husband. I do not call him “my Marine.”
That is the huge difference between you and I, I do not reference him to being my “Marine,” or hero or any other reference. He is my husband. I do not have my husbands EGA “stuck up my ass,” because I respect him that he chose to go through 3 months of hell to earn his title. He is extremely proud of himself and what he has gone there, I am no way shape or form taking that title away from him using his cover, or anything else, to “look cute” in a photo.
Whenever I see couples wearing their SO’s uniform, I can’t help but laugh. It is so disrespectful. I am definitely not alone on this one. I am not the MilSo police, I do not go looking for these photos. I follow a couple military SO’s directed blogs and occasionally I see photos such as this. I cannot even fathom how some one thinks this is cute.
Knowing someones relationship or story does not retrain to any of this. That does not count as a “excuse” for such a disrespectful photo.
The guts to tell someone to take the cover off? Lololol. I wouldn’t have to tell that person because someone else would.
Its not cute, its not adorable, its not fun. Its pathetic and extremely disrespectful.
You took this photo off for hate, and put it back on. Expect to get hate, it is the internet. You are basically asking for it.
I dont have the time or energy to fight you on this because ive made myself clear in the previous reblog, and i feel everything ive said still stands, so ill say this and then walk away: Im agreeing to disagree with you. Have a great life, please refrain from reblogging anything else I have to post or say.
