Girl Tired Of Slut-Shaming Meme Shares How Naughty Her Great-Great Grandmother Was Back In 1890

A Tumblr user from Colorado has sent the whole Internet rolling on the floor laughing, and has challenged the message behind a popular meme with a family story that is not to be missed.

Over the last few years, memes have been popping up everywhere that show a photo of a woman seeming to be from the early 1900’s juxtaposed with a modern-day Instagram shot. The captions describe the older photo as ‘pics of your grandma that you find in 2016,’ and the latter as ones you would find 70 years from now. The point, arguably, is to demonstrate that the women of days gone by were more ‘respectable’ than those of us living today because of their supposed modesty, and that kids of the future will be ashamed to see viral photos of their grandmother in nothing but her Calvins.

If this all sounds a little backwards to you, you’re not the only one. Tumblr blogger ‘gallusrostromegalus’ shared the following anecdote about her great-grandmother’s past to prove a much-needed point, so scroll down to read it, and let us know what you think in the comments.

Every generation thinks they invented sex without considering how they came to be.

I'd love to know the awkward trying of the very first humans to have sex, or people that have been solitary isolated for years. How would they come up with that?

My grandfather once said "Girls are the same nowadays as they were 40 years ago. The only difference is that the girls in my time had to lift their skirts up farther."

He sounds like a class act.

I found the unused Titanic tickets far more interesting than the nude photo finding! Not only they are really worht a fortune now, but it's astonishing how fate can work - a silly disease saved 4 lives from quite imminent death. They must have had the most surprised and thankful look on their faces when they saw the news and knew it could have been them there... *gulp* Quite frightening.

Measles is NOT a "silly disease". Measles kills. It causes neurological damage that can lead to deafness, blindness, and can change a happy toddler into a mental potato. Not vaccinating for measles is child abuse. NEVER forget that.
