The Ridiculousness of the word ‘selfie’
The word ‘selfie’ has been coined by the Oxford dictionary as the word of the year 2013. Why I don’t know.
Apparently, a ‘selfie’ is a photo you take of yourself with a handheld camera or camera phone. The photo is taken at an angle.
What is even worst than people taking ‘selfies’ of themselves are when they post them on social networking websites. Nobody wants to see that!
The first time I heard the word ‘selfie’ I was both shocked and disgusted. The first thing that came to mind is that it sounds like ‘self service’ – servicing yourself – and we all know what that really means!
There are only three reasons I could come up with as to why people want to take ‘selfies’ of themselves: Either there…
- Totally obsessed with themselves or
- Very lonesome – if you can’t even get someone else to take a decent photo of you there must be something wrong!
I’m disgusted with society. Why would you set yourself open for ridicule like that? Why would you want to do that to yourself?
