SELFIES BECAUSE FUCK YOU

Criticizing young women for taking selfies is misogynistic. Selfies are a way for people to take charge of their identities. You may not enjoy taking them or posting them, but you certainly don't get to call women names for doing so. Add your selfies! I won't call you narcissistic OR prey on women 20 years my junior!

    PS I worked on a project with the rape crisis center I worked with where women took selfies and captioned them with how it felt to look at themselves, and be the ones taking the photo.
    It was powerful. If you believe this is narcissistic, you are a bad person.

    Oh here's me! I actually really like myself.
    But maybe I'm just narcissistic?

    Believe it or not I just cut about 6" of hair and I still can't stop wondering where my ponytail is?!
    Also, every time I get my hair cut they tell me "Oh if you do a few more inches you can donate!" But I can't. I'm afraid of losing what is essentially my security blanket and I feel so selfish every time.

    SE Asia has opened my eyes to a whole new world of selfie culture. No matter how ridiculous the selfie might be to other people, they DO NOT CARE. They do it because they want to and nothing will stop them.

    This is me sitting in my living room watching CNN at 10:30 a.m., acknowledging that I don't have a consult until 5:00 p.m. tonight. I do not like the way I look. I have been told that I look like Drew Carey or John Denver my entire life. It is not flattering to me whatsoever. I play it off as a joke to avoid uncomfortable situations, but I hate it.
