Sister Outsider: Radical Act of #Selfies – #feministselfies: An Explainer

Sister Outsider & the Radical Act of #Selfies – #feministselfies: An Explainer

The most joyous thing of my week was the reaction of super smart women I admire to the Jezebel battle cry against the selfie. For the record, the analysis in this response to the fuckery is spot on. Personally, as plus-size girl from forever, selfies have been a way for me to see myself as beautiful. For many “nontraditional” beauty has always been out of reach. Reclaiming Self is powerful, not some sort of character weakness.

Preach Sister Outsider, Preach.
