Is the threat of the value judgement of being perceived as "ugly" that strong? I'm impressed by those linesthey're good for a drunk person. One of the most wonderful things about social media is that we are free to represent ourselves however we see fit: But the selfie is different from a photo of "real life", and I worry that if we comb out all the shockers from the party albums and never leave the Jon English photos in the mix, we lose something real. From mistaking bars of soap for fudge and driving cars into pools, to making random purchases online like Jeff Goldblum showers curtains for example and waking up with a toaster full of pasta, the people below might not have remembered the crazy stuff they got up to, but they probably remembered the hangover!

Everybody, myself included, has their "angles"; the tried and tested way in which we photograph our faces and bodies so they fit our desired perception of ourselves. Not an easy feat That's how the old saying goes. But the selfie is different from a photo of "real life", and I worry that if we comb out all the shockers from the party albums and never leave the Jon English photos in the mix, we lose something real. Imagine coming back home to this without the lights on. And not in the "she's lost it" sense, but rather, photographs as a true representation of real people living their lives. This is not a call for people to engage in "ugly selfies" or consciously stop taking flattering photos of ourselves; there is absolutely nothing wrong with revelling in the sometimes revolutionary act of vanity, particularly if one is not normatively "attractive" by mass media standards.
