It all started with the photo above, which I uploaded to my Facebook page. Shot on my mac in photobooth. Nothing special. Just shining the pearls for the camera as I go about my daily routine at work. I uploaded the original photo in its original mirror-imaged format with everything flipped horizontally.
And then, Miss Catherine -a friend of mine- took it and ran with it, creating a meme she called “The Romantic Activist”, which was inspired by the feminist Hey Girl Ryan Gosling memes floating around the internet.
I never imagined anyone taking a photo of mine to create a meme, much less one that pictures me as this romantic (m)activist. HA! That smooth mofo ain’t me! But you know. It certainly beats ending up on a meme like Bad Luck Brian.
Below are all the images she created, which I found hilarious. Hopefully y’all get a kick out of ‘em too.
