Florida Man Fired After Facebook Post Saying He Wants To Marry His Dog

Ryan Uhler thought he was being funny when he took to Facebook to compare marrying his dog to same-sex marriage, but he quickly found himself in the doghouse at work.

Uhler, 32, a resident of Cape Coral, Florida, posted the following message the day after the Supreme Court’s June 26 ruling that gay marriage is legal everywhere, according to TheBlaze.com.

”How is marrying a dog different if you love them? Today I hope we can focus on doggy-style love. I love my dog Rocco, and he loves me. Hopefully one day we can be married.”

On Tuesday, his employer, Grace Investment Group, fired him from his position as a digital marketing specialist.

“I was blindsided,” he told The Huffington Post. “I didn’t think anyone there knew how to use Facebook.”

Uhler told The Huffington Post he didn’t mean anything derogatory by the post, and has no problem with the Supreme Court’s decision.

However, he also admits being aware that likening same-sex marriage to an animal wedding is a cliche often used by critics of LGBT rights.

“I’m very neutral about politics. Sometimes, I will try and get a reaction to spark comments and responses.” Uhler told The Huffington Post. “I really didn’t want to offend. I have gay people I know and love and I wouldn’t want to offend them, but they know my sense of humor.”

He said he simply likes to go on Facebook and “stir the pot” sometimes in “either direction,” he said, according to the Palm Beach Post.

Uhler said company officials told him the Facebook post was the reason he was being fired and claimed they told him they were uncomfortable with the connotations of bestiality.

“It wasn’t about that at all,” he said. “It’s about loving a dog. People have told me, ‘I have a dog and I’d make that joke too.'”

Grace Investment Group hasn’t confirmed whether the post was why Uhler was canned, but it doesn’t have to: Florida is an “at will” state, which means employers can fire workers for any reason and without notice, according to WTSP.com.

Uhler, a married man, may be out of work, but he joked to NBC-2 that he would indeed marry Rocco if he were allowed.

However, he’s not laughing about being unemployed.

“The reason I’m coming forward about this is that I don’t want anyone to make the same mistake I did about posting jokes like this on Facebook,” he told HuffPost.

Birthday Wishes in the Facebook Era

I recently celebrated another birthday… thank you for your well-wishes. In the week since my birthday, I’ve received over a hundred “happy birthday” messages, many of them from people I haven’t spoken to in years.

Isn’t it funny how people seem to come out of the woodwork to wish you a happy birthday? Don’t get me wrong, I think it’s great! It really makes you feel special to be inundated with well-wishes on your birthday, but the contrast is striking. Where are most of these people the other 364 days of the year? Some are like your great aunt Sue, sending a mass “happy holidays” message in December and a unique “happy birthday” message on your special day. Others are school friends who haven’t interacted with you since graduation day. There are the people you’re vaguely friends with, and those whom you’re surprised they know your birthday; but of course they do – Facebook told them.

There, I said it. The number of people who actually know when your birthday is, or have a sense of what month it’s in, can probably be counted on your fingers and toes. But thanks to Facebook, hundreds of people get reminders that prompt them to send the two words “happy birthday” en masse. Don’t believe it? Try changing the date on your Facebook account and see how many birthday messages you get on your listed fake birthday. (You’ll also see who actually knows when your birthday is by the few messages that say “I’m confused, I thought your birthday is in April” – go buy each of them a present, they deserve it.)

But are these prompted well-wishes bad? No. Everyone wants to feel loved on his or her birthday, and getting a plethora of birthday wishes reinforces that you are special. Remember, even with an automatic reminder, your friends and acquaintances are still choosing to send you a message. And let’s get real, we all have senior moments, no matter our age; even your closest friends who know when your birthday is need reminders sometimes – I’ve sent numerous belated birthday wishes to childhood friends whose birthdays I’ve known for decades but I forgot on the actual day.

Indeed, one of the most amusing things to me on my birthday was, amidst the onslaught of “happy birthday” messages, to get a text about something unrelated from a good friend who’s forgotten my birthday. Seems odd, no? It was an amusing variation from the theme of the day’s messages, and if someone is my friend 364 days of the year then I don’t mind if he or she forgets my birthday.

Try something new for a year: commit to reaching out every three months to each person you send a birthday wish to. That’s just four times a year, once a season. (Space them out so you don’t have to send all 200 messages on the same day.) But how will you remember if Facebook isn’t reminding you to message them? The same way we did before Facebook: Set a reminder in your calendar. (And how convenient, your phone or computer can automatically repeat the reminder every three months!) I assure you that if you do, at least a handful of these acquaintances will reply and a few will blossom into great friendships. And then on your birthday next year, they can be the ones who obliviously give you a laugh by forgetting it’s your special day!

11 Aunts Wanted For Crimes Against Facebook

Aunts: they keep their friends close, and their nieces and nephews closer.

Do you or someone you know have an aunt friend on Facebook? Of course you do, Facebook is like 75 percent moms and aunts now. There’s no escaping the fact that our mother and father’s sisters are the new queens of the news feed, and if you’ve spent more than 10 minutes on the social network recently, you’ve probably been affected by one of these rogue relatives.

It’s not too late to do something about the awkward comments, constant game invites and shared links to news stories about a secret the government is hiding. Keep an eye out for these aunt-based crimes against Facebook and speak up so we can all stalk our exes and check up on old high school friends in peace.

Can You Really Know All Your Facebook Friends? This Photographer Tried to Find Out.

This post originally appeared on Slate.
By David Rosenberg

tanja

Willow & Foris Williams, Gorham, Maine, 2013. Relationship: friends, family friends, met through Toby and Lucky Hollander. Years known: 25-30.

Like many Facebook users, Tanja Hollander realized that when she was sharing information on the social network, some of the people reading her posts she was in constant communication with, while others she barely knew. Some, she didn’t really know at all. She wondered: “Am I really friends with all of these people?”

That question would evolve as she traveled through 43 states and five countries, averaging two weeks of travel per month, to photograph every one of her Facebook friends for her project Are You Really My Friend (she didn’t include people she added since beginning the project in 2011). She is currently trying to figure out how to translate this project into a March 2017 show at Mass MoCA that will include all the portraits plus accounts of her experiences both on the road and via social media since she began the ambitious undertaking.

“That’s what I’m obsessed with right now, trying to visualize all the data,” Hollander said about the intriguing connections that come up when meeting people for the project. “All of these experiences I’m having to me are almost more important than taking the picture of the people. So how do I visualize all of these experiences besides saying go to my Instagram feed or let me tell you this cool story?”

All of the portraits for the project have been shot on film, which in some ways might seem like a paradox for a project that delves deep into the modern, digital oriented virtual world. For Hollander it’s the only thing that made sense, although she does bring along an iPhone and digital point and shoot camera for backup.

“It’s not like I’m going back to film,” she said. “I never left film. I went from records to an iPod. I’ve always shot film and it’s funny because I’m doing a super tech project—I’m not a techie at all—I came kicking and screaming into even using Photoshop.”

Most photographers will tell you that shooting film also slows things down. To keep things casual and less intimidating for her subjects, Hollander travels by herself with no light kits and no assistants, armed only with her Hasselblad camera, a couple rolls of film and a tripod. Not only does it bring down the tension for her subjects, it has also affected Hollander.

“I’m a much nicer person now because you have to be,” she said about making the portraits. “You can’t be a jerk when you go into someone’s house to take a picture.”

Working on the project has also reshaped Hollander’s definition of what a friend is, although she isn’t convinced there is much difference between online relationships and those based in “reality.” She said friends have always represented different roles from those you might only run into at an art show to those with whom you share more intimate details of your life.

“The word friend is hard because Facebook took it and corporatized it,” she said. “I’m a person who loves meeting people and I’m always introducing people … I would say I definitely have a connected network of people and I think Facebook just mimicked what I already had and made it easier to connect with people.”

So far, the majority of people Hollander contacted about participating in the project have agreed to sit for her. Her sister and her wife liked theirs; her parents, not so much (“I don’t think they really understood what I was doing and it was the first time they’ve seen themselves portrayed in this way.”) Hollander said she tries reaching out to people few times about taking their portrait and if they don’t have the courtesy to respond to her request, she unfriends them.

She made a conscious decision to shoot her exes last, something she might end up changing. “I’m starting to think that’s not the best idea to save all the people I don’t want to see,” she laughed. “It’s going to suck the last six months!” She added that simply going into each home is emotional enough.

“The emotional part is hard because I never know what situation I’m going to walk into, even with close friends. You never know what’s happened in the last couple of days—and when I’m there, I’m in it!”
