Bree Wiseman, a 22 year old pastry chef and restaurant manager from Tennessee shared a photo of her dog on Facebook next to a plate of food. This photo is really cute but that isn’t the reason the photo has gone viral.
Wiseman used the photo to make a powerful statement about sexual assault. The photo of the dog and plate of food was used as a metaphor.
To the people that say women get raped due to the way they are dressed. This is my dog. His favorite food is steak. He is eye level with my plate. He won’t get any closer because I told him no. If a dog is better behaved than you are, you need to reevaluate your life. Feel free to share, my dog is adorable.
Over 270,000 people have shared the photo and thousands have left many comments supporting the message and the dog.
If a 4-year-old pit bull understands the word no,’ even though he is looking at something he wants so bad he is literally drooling, then adults should understand ‘no,’ no matter how the other adult is dressed… How is it that a simple-minded animal has the ability to understand better than a large part of the adult population?
That was a great questions! Even though some of us already understand that dogs are better than most people these days.
When people like Wiseman speak up and use this type of photo and metaphor to do so I believe it makes people think and drives the point home.
