She Was Bullied at School Because Her Aunt Worked in Adult Entertainment, So She Started Treating Her Aunt Like Dirt

A woman had recently been present during a family photograph, which included her 14-year-old daughter Emily, her sister, and other family members. However, little did she know that this family photograph would soon lead to Emily having her world turned upside down. 

The Aunt’s Profession

The woman’s sister, who was Emily’s aunt, had a somewhat unconventional profession. She worked in the adult entertainment industry, primarily appearing in adult videos.

Emily and her family loved the recently taken family photo. To share it with her friends, Emily decided to post the family photograph on social media. 

The Unwelcome Message

One day, Emily received an unexpected message from a boy at her school. “He recognized Emily’s aunt from an adult film and messaged her about it”, the woman explained. “He sent a video to her as well, and before this, she had no idea her aunt was in the industry.”

A Spreading Rumor

The boy from school proceeded to spread rumors about Emily’s aunt’s profession around the playground. When Emily’s mother caught wind of this, she immediately contacted the school to address the situation. The school assured her that they would investigate the matter and take steps to educate students about online sexism.

Mixed Feelings and Blame

Emily’s reaction to the situation was complex. “She is directing all her anger and blame towards her aunt”, the woman explained. “She unfriended her from social media, and when she comes over, she ignores her and just hides in her room playing video games.”

Attempts to Educate

Emily’s mother recognized the need to address this situation with empathy and understanding. She tried talking to Emily about the importance of tolerance, the perils of shame, and the existence of sexism online. Unfortunately, Emily seemed dismissive of these discussions, making it challenging for her mother to get through to her.

Aunt’s Hurt Feelings

Emily’s aunt was deeply hurt by the entire ordeal. Not only did she feel that her privacy had been invaded, but she had also lost a once-close relationship with her niece. The situation had created a chasm between them, causing emotional pain on both sides.

An Unpleasant Encounter

Things took a turn for the worse when Emily’s mother attempted to reunite the family. “Last weekend, I went upstairs to my daughter’s room to try and talk to her”, she explained. “She got angry and called my sister a misogynistic name, before labeling her husband “a pathetic loser” along with other slurs I don’t want to repeat.”

Emily’s Punishment

In response to Emily’s offensive language, the mother took action. “I grounded her for three months and took away her internet”, she recounted. “My husband thought this was too much. He admitted that he too struggled to accept my sister’s career path at first. He thinks she just needs space and will come around eventually because her aunt is family.”

Reflecting on Her Actions

The woman became conflicted. Emily had said some awful things about her aunt, but she understood that it came from a place of confusion and school conflict. She wondered whether grounding her was too harsh, and if she should have simply let her deal with the situation gradually. 

An Online Verdict

The woman confessed her actions to an online community, asking for the opinions of strangers regarding the matter. To her dismay, she was berated. “Stop and think for a minute what sorts of disgusting things those 14-year-olds are saying to your CHILD”, someone demanded. “Have some compassion, Emily’s done nothing wrong.”

One reader pointed out the rampant misogyny in schools. “Schools are a literal breeding ground for misogyny, it is disgraceful and needs addressing but the teachers seem to feed into it instead of stopping it. Girls in my class were called slurs for wearing skorts for PE, just ridiculous.”

A disgusted commenter chimed in. “Also, how much adult entertainment was this young 14-YEAR-OLD boy consuming to come across the aunt in the first place? The odds of that is crazy so it sounds like there is an addiction here that needs to be addressed by the school and his parents.”

Flipping Her Perspective

Many commenters expressed their belief that Emily’s mother was looking at this all wrong. “Your sister’s privacy was NOT invaded, she gave it up for money”, someone pointed out. “I’m not judgemental about this, she’s an adult. However, your kid is NOT an adult, she doesn’t get anything out of this except for being bullied in school.”

Lazy Parenting

Overall, it was clear that the internet did not approve of the woman’s disciplinary action. “You need to try and have a conversation and really understand what she’s going through”, one commenter suggested. “Just grounding her without even having a conversation is pretty lazy parenting and can lead to issues down the road.”
