I’m gonna go ahead and need people to stop posting pictures of a boring model in the Svetlana Zakharova tag.





Don’t even care if it’s her name, she doesn’t deserve to be in the same page as Sveta.

I’m gonna have to ask you to stop complaining that you don’t have an exclusive tag to one woman. Goodness knows that two people can’t have the same name, like god damn girl, chill.

Lol at someone responding to my post is telling me to chill.  Clearly it rubbed you the wrong way, but girl you need to chill.

I know some people prefer the dancer and some prefer the model. Some prefer neither. But I’m not out and about saying the Svetlana Zakharova tag should be exclusively the prima ballerina. Shit son, the model is fine, this happens in tags all the time. Music tags have tons of selfies with lyrics and the same damn picture reposted 10+ times consecutively. Ballet tags often times have the same gif tagged with “girl,” “pretty,” or “hipster” attached. Svetlana’s tag seems to have two people in it: the ballerina and the model. We just gotta learn to deal with it. Chill, and stop your hating.

mollypoppins, I think you are the one who needs to chill. if two people have the same name they’re gonna show up when you search for one of them. get over yourself. -Dor
