the prospect of facing a highly competitive, noisy, quick-moving, kaleidoscopic society and braving its dangers - sickness, crime, poverty - could be traumatic.

Yea I’m not sure how that works? Maybe you don’t?
You’re welcome! Is it ok if I follow your new blog? I feel the same often.
Someone please go edit this wikipedia entry, its the sociology section of the ‘selfie’ entry. A woman using available tools to represent herself is not a vessel to channel the viral male gaze. Its called peacocking, Ben Agger.
"Gender roles, sexuality, and privacy
Selfies are particularly popular among girls and young women. Sociologist Ben Agger describes the trend of selfies as “the male gaze gone viral”, and sociologist and women’s studies professor Gail Dines links it to the rise of porn culture and the idea that sexual attractiveness is the only way in which a woman can make herself visible. Writer Andrew Keen has pointed out that while selfies are often intended to give the photographer control over how their image is presented, posting images publicly or sharing them with others who do so may have the opposite effect—dramatically so in the case of revenge porn, where ex-lovers post sexually explicit photographs or nude selfies to exact revenge or humiliate their former lovers. Copyright law may be effective in forcing the removal of private selfies from public that were forwarded to another person.”
