Marjie Grace wanted to express her love of mustard and OCR through a fun photo. She did not plan on the social media kerfuffle that followed.
She then wrote the following on her Facebook page.
“So recently I posted this photo to West Coast Spartans (which was then posted on to Spartan's page until too many complaints) and pissed off some of the ladies and men to the point every photo of my mustard consumption was removed for being sexual.
I’m trying to figure out how girls can pose half naked in some pics tits and ass out duck face which I find super offensive and it’s fine but oh no Marjie puts the mustard on the tongue and people can’t take a joke.
It started with me consuming mustard during races because it can alleviate cramping during a long run. Not to mention if I guy does it, it’s found all good but nope I went to far.. So what am I looking forward to Mustard Monday! everyone needs to STFU!”
This had us asking ourselves some interesting questions.
Where is the line in photos between “fit” and “provocative”?
Are pictures of athletes on FB and IG showing off their assets REALLY about their “progress” or is it chance for men and women to get attention by almost showing their naughty bits?
Is Marjie’s photo something you wouldn’t show your children?
Is mustard the new ketchup?
We would love to know your thoughts.
