Being a parent seems hard, especially when there's no official guidebook to lay out the rules for you. But luckily there is Reddit, a website where so many people turn to in times of great ethical confusion. Recently, a conflicted mom turned to Reddit's "Am I the A**hole?" page to ask for some parenting advice after her teenaged daughter sl*t-shamed her sister-in-law.
The saga started when the teen got teased by her classmates after she posted a photo of her family online and a classmate recognized her aunt from an "adult film."
My daughter (14yo) posted a picture of a family get together on social media. A boy from school recognized her aunt from an adult film and messaged my daughter about it. I believe he sent a video to her as well. Before this, she had no idea her aunt was in the industry. It appears that boy spread this around the school and my daughter is being teased for it. I notified the school and they are looking into it and will plan to educate the students about sexism online.
