Selfies = Non Hate Of The Self

So I wanted to write a short piece about selfies, the recent fad of taking your own photo which is often derided.

There are so many beautiful people in the world who don’t believe that they are at all.

During most of my adulthood I wouldn’t have had the liking for myself – let alone the love – to ever do them – ‘selfie’ - but now I do. So although it’s vane, and yeah, it’s so fucking vane; at least it is someone feeling good about themselves. Feeling proud of them self. And it’s not like others have to look at them either; not like when someone is standing right there in front of you and giving you boring conversation. Now that you have to take in. But really, the taking and posting of a selfie is much like the writing and posting of a piece of writing. You are being in the face of others, but only if they want you to be.

Oh, and Miley Cyrus loves them too.

Did I just ruin my argument?
