Selfies can be self care and self love without “male gaze” approval. Selfies can be visibility for underrepresented minorities. Selfies can bepersonal affirmations that you are here and you’re not going anywhere. And in my opinion, an equally valid #feministselife can be unashamed, pure, beautiful and unadulterated vanity because you look amazing today and you love what your hair is doing right now and everyone needs to know it. The need for validation and support doesn’t stem from a selfie culture, it is an integral part of our relationships with each other. It’s not wrong to want to be validated, it’s human.
If those 20 likes on your selfie makes you feel good about yourself, then you know what? Enjoy that feeling, and while you’re at it, pat yourself on the back for getting through another day as a woman constantly reminded by surrounding media and culture that you just aren’t good enough.”
