why worry about being recognized when you're not closeted (i assume you're not)? i just have my face pic on all the time lol. everyone whose on it are all LGBT as well so i feel like it wouldnt matter if they recognize you. but then again im 0L, and maybe things are different when youre in law school. do you need to be more careful?
Yea but you wouldn't think you'd see someone with an important post on there.. They have guys showing their stuff out in the open in some pics and it sometimes feels like half a porn site. It's hard to see how someone who wants to be taken seriously and is looking for a really professional, influential post can be on there. If I saw Anderson Cooper on there, my view of him would definitely change lol.
oh youre talking about a website? i was talking about smart phone apps like grindr/jack'd. but still, i dont think it would be that much of an issue. i mean most of us probably used these things at one point or another, and even if someone perused a porn site, whats the big deal? dont most men watch porn? and again if someone were to recognize you on these, they would also have to be LGBT, and we as a group do not tend to be prudes. i for one would not think less of anderson cooper if he was on these apps
i would find him more relatable haha
I would too. He's be more awesome then. But the whole "being ethical" thing about lawyers makes me nervous at times. If they asked us all those questions about our criminal record (squeeky clean here) and stuff like that on the app, I don't wanna have to explain why I was found (if I am doing it and I'm not saying I am) sending smiles to people on a website that has members showing their crotch lol ... I don't see a problem with it if it's done appropriately, but you know how mainstream in-the-box people can be... it can be a reason someone loses their job.. But, I'm not really out and don't know too much about it so I might be wrong.
