Are Selfies Just A Digital Vehicle For 'Fat Talk'?

Leah Berkenwald | Posted 02.07.2014 | Women
Leah Berkenwald

While some use selfies to subvert dominant paradigms, many young women are using selfies in a manner that, like fat talk, extols the thin-ideal and Western beauty paradigm, continues the normalization of body image dissatisfaction, and reinforces the idea that you must self-denigrate in order to fit in and receive positive affirmations from your friends.
