So I get this e-mail from another Kristen Alyce basically asking me to remove a photo on MY blog that she fears may be damaging to HER company’s image. It took me ages to reply because I honestly didn’t feel it was worth it, and plus I am not interested in getting into any back and forth with her over such NONSENSE. However, as I am slowly being possessed by the pre-menstrual spirit of Tracey, I decided to go ahead and educate her on her ratchetness:
Let me start off by saying that I am very pleased to hear about the success of your company. As a woman who too would like to venture into the fashion industry, it is always encouraging to see what others are achieving in the field, particularly as a basis for assessing my own potential for success.
However, I am equally disappointed in the fact that you felt it necessary to send me an e-mail basically asking me to discredit something I believe in simply for the sake of a Google search.
You have to understand, Kristen, that as awesome as your (our) name is, you do not own rights to it. If someone Googles “Kristen Alyce” and they see a photo of a banner that reads “God Loves Gays” next to a photo of a woman dressed in a newspaper, what they hoped to find in their search will dictate which photo they click on. If they happen to click on the photo of the banner, then they will be lead to my blog and I will have been successful in drawing someone to my thoughts and views. If they click on the next photo, they will be lead to your website and voila, another person has been made aware of “Garbage Gone Glam”. So you see, it’s really a win-win situation.
Please do not underestimate the intelligence of our friends of the World Wide Web. There is nothing on “The Personal Reflections of Kristen Alyce” that would link the two of us together; except for this e-mail which I will be posting as a means to further clarify our distinctions (for anyone who may Google our name, of course.)
But I do understand your concerns, Kristen, I do. If I did a Google search on my name and came across a photo that read “God Hates Fags”, I would be like “What the hell?” as well. However, what I wouldn’t do is contact the source of that photo to ask him or her to remove it in order to protect my precious image. It’s just out of line. What someone chooses to post online is a reflection of his or her morals and beliefs, and it isn’t something that we can control; no matter how desperately we may want to.
So to answer your question, no. I will not remove the photo although it may comfort you to know that the last I checked, it wasn’t shown in the images featured when our name is Googled. Still, for future references, I’d just like to point out that while you spoke about what is appropriate for your company, in all of your tactfulness, you came across as a bit arrogant and pompous, and these are traits that could potentially lead to your demise if you are not careful with where such energies are directed.
Be blessed, love!
“Now (may) the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.” Romans 15:13
Now I agree with what a friend told me; that she means me no harm. In fact, I am pretty convinced that she was fully unconscious of how rude and out of place she was for even contacting me with this mess but there is a lesson to be learned in everything we do in life and hope she thinks twice the next time she finds cause to assert her authority over “Kristen Alyce”.
In other news, as I resident of North Carolina I would just like to big up gay marriage! God loves gays! God loves gays!! :)
