While I’d like to think that I have a pretty good sense of humor, I don’t see how this photo is funny at all. Maybe it’s because I’m a mother to a young little girl or maybe because I’m also a woman who lives in the year 2015, but I don’t see how taping up another woman or girl’s mouth can be seen as a joke.
Well, that’s exactly what the case is here as this Louisiana family is being SLAMMED for this supposed comical holiday card. Hannah Hawkes Photography, a studio based in Rosepine, Louisiana, shared the controversial image on Facebook which has since gone viral.
The picture sees a mother and her two daughters with their arms bound and their mouths covered with green tape while the father of the family holds up a sign that says ‘Peace on Earth’ and his young son gives the camera a thumbs up. The photo has since been removed from Facebook after thousands commented on how it perpetuates violence against women.
