In the first of a series of interactive debates, So So Gay is asking its followers on Twitter to contribute to a discussion on the rights and wrongs of using photos of other people on social media without the subject’s prior consent.
How many of us have logged into Twitter only to see ‘Hottie or Nottie’ posts? Often taken on public transport, the post features a photo of an unsuspecting member of the public and asks followers to cast judgement as to whether the person is ‘hot’ or ‘not’.
So So Gay wants to know what you think about ‘Hottie or Nottie’. Is it just a bit of harmless fun? Or does it represent an unjustifiable violation of a person’s privacy? Does it represent a worrying gay obsession with physical perfection? Or is it just reflective of society’s preoccupation with aesthetics in general?
Whatever your views, tweet us at @SoSoGay, using the hashtag #ssgneedsyou. We will then compile the best responses into a feature, which will include the views of two of our writers.
This is your opportunity to actively contribute to So So Gay. We can’t wait to read your responses.
By taking part in this debate, you agree to your Twitter username and profile picture being published on our website.
