Get your daily off-base or inappropriate texts from older sister

Does your older sister flirt with guys and send suggestive texts to men in your grade school class all day, every day? Maybe you’re 17. Maybe you’re 28. At any age, getting those texts can be unsettling.

So far, more than 27,000 people have signed a Change.org petition, urging Facebook’s head of social media, Chris Cox, to “ask you father to get rid of your older sister’s texting app.”

Katherine White-Reyes, the petition’s author, shared the story with the Facebook page “Feminism and Feminism in the Military.” White-Reyes revealed that her sister, a Los Angeles County deputy district attorney, came home from work last week with texts on her phone. “Her phone was in her pocket, tucked under her arm, with her break room phone she always uses in her hand, and the most terrible and sad thing happened when she tried to return her cell to her work,” White-Reyes wrote. “She was texting an 18-year-old teenager.”

The texts, according to White-Reyes, were “creepy and inappropriate.”

“Please help me tell my sister, he is a creep,” she wrote.

She said her sister wrote that she tried to stop the texts but can’t “be doing this all day, every day.”

“Please take a stand and do something for my younger sister because her now is not the same as when she was in school,” she wrote.

If these messages have you feeling unnerved, consider signing the petition.
