On selfies

Why are selfies tacky?
Selfies are tacky because tacky people take selfies.

What’s the difference between a selfie and a self portrait?
An artist.

what’s your problem with selfies bitch?
My problem is their ubiquity and pervasiveness. The selfie phenomenon reflects a certain kind of crass self-absorption that I find repulsive, and I’m tired of staring back at legions of shirtless duckfaced morons posing under the florescent lights of their own bathroom mirrors.

what about the selfie as a way for women to be photographed the way they see themselves instead of as objects of the male gaze?
Don’t use feminist theory to make excuses for your narcissism.

I take selfies and I’m not tacky!
Fine. You’re the exception. You’re special. Whatever.
