If Appreciating a Kilted Rump is Wrong Then I Don’t Wanna Be Right!

Kiss THIS facebook!

I thought it was a good idea; instead of referring to Wedsnesdays as ‘hump day’ (the proverbial hill/middle of the work week), why not call it ‘rump day’ and show a man whose kilted cheek may be showing a little?   Most of the ‘Rump Day’ features on Outlander Fan’s facebook page were pretty tame, not to mention verra popular (and for the record my page has always had a setting of 18 yrs old & older).

We all looked forward to it, it really brightened up the midweek.

This past Rump Day wednesday (7-11-12), as I was sitting by my sister’s pool & checking facebook from my smartphone, a warning notice in red popped up;  it said something to the effect of  ‘we have taken down this photo for its  inappropriateness/if you wish to keep your page then remove all related content/visit this link for community guidelines.’   My first thought was, “Really?  Someone COMPLAINED?  Who in their right mind wouldn’t want to see men in kilts doing handstands (bums facing audience) on a stage?”  My next thought was “Oh sh*t” and I hightailed into the house to get on my laptop to see what was going on.

I couldn’t find the warning again but I immediately started moving the tamer pics (e.g.  a tattoo on a kilted thigh) over to a different album.  After maybe the 2nd pic was moved I was locked out of the rest of the pics!  I felt heartsick.  Not wanting the fb dictators to take down my page, I deleted the album.  I don’t really feel like I had a choice, I didn’t want to lose Outlander Fan on fb.  I’ll concede that full-on/someone-flashing-their-entire-bum pics are questionable, by fb standards.  But can someone please explain to me how a tatooed thigh is considered graphic nudity?!  I’m at a loss…

That being said, I want to say THANK YOU to all of you who banded together & supported me and Rump Day.  You really did lift my spirits- it makes me happy to know that there are so many other likeminded Outlander fans ♥

I have a little something up my sleeve, and a giveaway in the works to boot.  I’ll leave you to ponder this:  They may take our Rump Day, but they’ll never take our FREEEEEDOM, lol!  #CheesyBraveheartReference

    I am still appalled that someone would complain. I looked forward to ‘Rump Day’ pics every week. I cannot wait to see what you have in the works!

      Can you believe it?! Obviously not an Outlander fan, Jenna. (Who wouldn’t want to fantasize about what Jamie & Co. were hiding under their kilts lol?)

    Rump Day always made my day. I will miss it. If you want to keep posting “inappropriate” pics here … go ahead. 🙂

    A bare rump (and a nice one at that) is NOT like full frontal nudity! I’d like to meet the prude that complained.

    Will definitely miss Rump Day…But I can’t believe some of the other crap that is allowed…Guess it depends on the complainant. Pooh on you complainer!

    I saw a post the other day of a woman bending over fishing wearing shorts so short you saw everything but the crack – I think that is what people find offensive – the crack. As if the whole rest of the butt is okay and why are there completely naked pics of women (carefully hidden by arms or whatever) on fb but you can’t show a man’s rump? Ridiculous!!
