Last year, when Chris Pratt took a selfie of his new sculpted physique and posted it to Twitter, the Internet erupted with glee, but Pratt himself immediately felt weird about it. His friends called him a giant douchebag for doing so, and he ultimately agreed with them that it was a douchey move. I mean, what does a sexy selfie say ultimately except: “Look at how hot I am.”


It’s tacky, no? Shouldn’t others be making that assessment? Should we not put ourselves in a position to allow others to draw the conclusion that we are sexy? It’s like being a millionaire and posting your bank balance or posting your SAT scores to show how smart you are.

Does Kim Kardashian look good in a bikini? Yes, yes she does. But whatever happened to a little reserve, a little, “You mean, this old thing?” while you rock that bikini bottom walking away? Confidence is great, but there’s a fine line between confidence and shamelessness.

It lacks dignity, man.






Ricky Gervais understands. Right, Ricky?


Anyway, this is what I thought when I saw Kim Kardashian’s selfie this morning. I’m overthinking this, aren’t I? I’m letting something insignificant needlessly bug me?

Probably. So it goes.
