Saturday, August 17, 2013I've seen some debate online about "selfie culture"
The people in favor of it are in favor of it because young people (mostly) are in control of how they are being portrayed to the world.
The people opposed to it are opposed to it because young people (mostly) are in control of how they are portrayed to the world.
I can't help but think that future civilizations are going to be perplexed as to why the males of our species were unable to be photographed without their tongues sticking out and/or their brows furrowed, and why the females of our species were unable to be photographed without making a kissy face or having their mouths open. I suspect people will think it's some kind of neurological tic caused by genetically modified food.
I figure you can post as many half-clothed, pouty-faced, bathroom mirror selfies as you want, but just remember that if you commit a crime or are the victim of a crime, that duck-faced picture you hashtagged "#nomakeup", "#nofilter", #nopanties" is going to be splashed across the news and you're going to wish you hadn't filtered and photoshopped it to death because there's no way anyone is going to be able to recognize you (or not depending on whether you are the criminal or the kidnapped person).
