That was the question asked in our psychology class today. The answers were evenly split.

What say cafemom?

People of Walmart was an example. Any site that encourages people to take pictures or videos of other people with the whole intent to laugh at them..does that send the wrong message to people?

No it teaches children that you shouldn't dress like a side show freak in public.

In a way it does.. if grownups can laugh at the way people are dressed and post nasty comments and captions then how are kids supposed to know it's not ok to pick on kid's inthier class dressed different ?

Perhaps. However, I don't think children should be on people of walmart. I think parents need to monitor CLOSELY what their children are looking at.

You're out in public, you're allowing people to look at you and judge you. It is even legal to take pictures without someone's consent. (scarily enough, I'm pretty sure it doesn't apply to minors)

Is it good? Bad? I'm neutral. It's like freedom of speech. It can be used for good or for bad.

People of Walmart was an example. We were talking about all sites that make fun of other people.
