an actual headline deemed worthy of adorning an equally shitty article on jezebel today: Selfies Aren’t Empowering. They’re a Cry for Help

deep heavy frustrated sigh

the entire article is full of gems like:

  • “selfies don’t typically contain job offer letters, successful grant applications” (oh you’re right, i forgot that 100% of my online activity must be directly related and applicable to future potential success. better delete my steam account because logging 91 hours in saint’s row iii will never teach me how to )
  • "They’re literally just pictures of a woman’s face not talking" (guess it doesn’t count that a woman took agency in taking it herself, or that you know, we don’t live at hogwarts and pictures….don’t….ever….talk)
  • "In real life, walking up to a stranger, tilting your head downward at a 45-degree angle, duckfacing, pushing your tits together, and screaming "DO YOU THINK I’M PRETTY!" would be summon the authorities. On the internet, it’s just how people operate.” (because there’s no documented cultural and behavioral division between “real life” and the online sphere. guess i forgot i have to act exactly the same in every aspect of me life, and take pictures of myself in none of them)
  • "I kind of hate all of them. ‘Hey guys, I’m by myself!’ my selfie says, ‘Can you please somehow indicate that other humans are out there so that I do not collapse into my own loneliness????? LOLOLOL’" (god forbid someone use the internet as a way of connecting with people who feel the same, occasionally using pictures of themselves as a vehicle to do that)
  • "Young women take selfies because they don’t derive their sense of worth from themselves, they rely on others to bestow their self-worth on them." (or maybe we just looked really cute today and wanted to show our friends, you sack of horse shit)

never trust anyone who tells you that selfies are intrinsically disempowering. never let anyone make you feel bad about having the power to document your life and present yourself in a way that you can control.
