Simple string comparasons

I have some enumerated fields on creation and I don't want to display
them in the event someone has decided not to fill them out (ie leaving
them as the default). The above does not work sadly. How can I
appropriatly check for this. I also have some boolean values as well
as possible nils(Or blank space). How can I check for these and if
theres content display it. Otherwise skip that whole field ?

I figure it should be pretty easy but everything I try fails.

object.blank?
