One thing everyone I know agrees on, is to not take Jezebel seriously.

She's just not the same since she broke up with Gene.

Ooooh, pictures.

I thought the title had to do with masturbation, and "selfie" was some new hipster term.

I also figured masturbation. Then I figured self-portrait. Then I was curious enough to give Jezebel a page view and discovered they meant naughty self-portraits.

It's a perfectly cromulent word.

"The more selfies a guy has, the more obvious it is he craves validation," my friend Lindsay said. "The more validation he needs, the less likely it is that any one woman will be able to give it to him."

I think that actually works for both sexes. Vainglorious people with a constant need for attention are emotionally high maintenance as a rule and it doesn't matter really if they are a guy or a gal.

That noted, I've often heard women say that they have no interest in spending time with a man with whom they would have to compete with for the bathroom mirror. So there's that.

I have learned to type with one hand and use a trackball with my foot.

Yes, we know feminists... You think everything men do is wrong.

Just because I like to look at pictures of pretty girls does not mean I don't think many of them are vapid skanks. I don't really find it endearing for anyone to be so in-love with themselves. Regardless of gender.

Jezebel is to feminists as Justin Bieber is to good, quality music.

"I'd rather a man be thinking about how pretty I am than worrying about how pretty he is.

i'm laying on the couch drunk and smelling like tacos with my beer belly hanging out while watching sports on the tv and thinking how pretty you are. happy? sex after the game[s] end?
 
2013-03-10 06:58:00 PM  
I still don't see how a feminist can respect vanity in anybody. Confidence? Sure. Vanity?

If a man takes a "Selfie" he's gay. (NTTAWWT)

It's no dumber a word than "selfie."

Bathrooms have mirrors? Who knew?

Men care about what women look like, so women care about what women look like.

Women don't care what men look like* so when a man cares what he looks like he's vain.

*to a point, grooming goes both ways

It's what a man does that matters. Not how pretty he is.

To be a Jezebel reader is to suffer the existential misery of choosing between a narrative which states "ANTHONY WEINER WRONGED WOMYN!!!1one!" and a narrative which states "OMG TEH RETHUGLICANS SWIFTBLOATED ANTHONY WEINER!!1one!".

I inherited the only marble mouse in my office from a fresh-out-of-college girl that demanded it for "ergonomic" reasons about a month before she quit.  I'm going to have the thing fumigated first thing Monday, now.

Wow. Jump from "self portrait" to "penis photo" between title and first sentence? Mind the gap! Whole lotta crazy here?

The problem with Jez is they're not as intelligent as their student loans indicate.
