Selfish parents

Today, I asked my parents to stop posting pictures of me and my ex-girlfriend on Facebook. They said no because “she’s still nice to them”, despite the fact that she cheated on me and sexually assaulted me. FML

Sounds like it's time to consider whether you want to keep your parents actively in your life or not, given that they clearly don't respect you in the slightest.

That's awful, I'm sorry your parents aren't supportive especially considering the trauma you went through. If I was in your shoes I'd unfriend them, and if they asked why you did it then the answer is obvious.. They're choosing your ex over you, regardless of how horrible she was.. So what if she was nice to them? YOU are their child, and she wasn't kind to you (That's putting it mildly of course). If that's too much drama you can always unfollow them so you don't see their posts, but then you'd still have the knowledge of what they're doing. Either way, this sucks and I hope you find a way to heal.

Maybe they don’t want everyone knowing this stuff. Here, we don’t know who they are. Also there, it’s people they know irl. And most don’t want sexual assaults aired on Facebook.

which part? That the parents would still be friends with his ex despite what she did? I believe it unfortunately. Especially if the OP is male as the indicator suggests; sexual assault against men isnt taken as seriously, especially if the perpetrator is a woman.

This! @OP you can report the pictures to FB and they WILL remove them from the timeline. Just be persistent and eventually the parents might get the idea that those pictures are NOT their property and need to stop posting them.
