I was flipping through some of my aunt's pictures on Facebook today and I came across a cute one of her two boys working on a gingerbread house at my parents kitchen table. In the background you can see my Mother's back as she finishes up the dishes. I'm off to the side drying...
The issue is a comment underneath... "Cute boys... and the woman in her proper place".
I do not know the commenter and I did not post the picture, so I have no way of taking it down. What I want to write is in no way ehell approved, but goes along the lines of "That's MY MOTHER you're talking about!"
Sure, it could be a joke that my aunt and this person have going but I just find it completely offensive and I know my mother would as well if she had a facebook account. I plan on telling my aunt about it asap, but we've just lost my great grandfather... I don't want to trouble her with it now. The only reason I came across it was because I was trying to find a picture of Pa to use at the service on Thursday.
Would I be justified in Private messaging the offending commenter? Should I just leave it until Auntie can take down the comment? What would you do?
