Selfie Apologetics

I will never cease to be amazed at how much anger some people – not all, just some – express toward girls who upload lots of selfies (they’re just designing/presenting their own image), but never toward the boys behind cameras who position girls like props (they’re objectifying human beings). It’s inane to condone or participate in the (male-driven) fetishization of female beauty (which is a narcissistic act) but then turn around and demonize female vanity.

if you like to, upload your selfies, gurlz, i like them especially the ones where you have that winged eyeliner going
