Today, I was at my girlfriend's house watching a home makeover show with her and her mom. The show's host had a giant portrait of himself on his wall and then I said, "I hate it when people do that, it's so stupid." Her mom stared at me and pointed to the portrait of my girlfriend on the wall. FML

Exactly, theres a difference. Having a giant picture of your self screams "LOOK AT ME!!! Aren't I amazing? Aren't I tacky and full of myself???" But having a picture of your beloved daughter isn't nearly as bad.

Perhaps it's too soon to be revealing opinions...It's not a bad thing that it did so, but perhaps you shoulda kept it under wraps. I once said that a BA in anything was about as useless as any award you get in Elementary school, and my new girlfriend said "Thanks" before walking away. Apparently, she was getting a BA in History. It's not really all that devastating since that's really how I feel, but in hindsight, I coulda held such info in a bit longer.

*waits for PM from random BA major expressing his or her anger towards me.*

For one thing, I'll agree with #21, a BA is next to worthless

and to #12, where does it say a picture, because OP clearly said a potrait of the daughter

I see two problems with that. One: The tone in which he said that he hated it was probably too strong for them to easily believe he was actually kidding. Two: Saying "I'm joking" only AFTER you saw her portrait on the wall decreases your credibility.

On another note. How long has she been your girlfriend for you to not have noticed that before? Or did you just forget?

So why can't OP have an opinion, really? I mean if he thinks it's stupid, he thinks it's stupid. End of story. He's within his rights to have an opinion.

YDI for blabbing. Likewise, YDI for having a facetious, egotistical girlfriend (unless said "portrait" was a painting that she herself or a friend made).

Well, to start, I agree with you.
I don't think you did anything wrong though...because you'd assume that the picture of your girlfriend would have been her mom's idea & for her sake.
Don't parents alsmost always have pictures of their kids everywhere?
