Enough is enough people. ENOUGH.
I have seen one too many Facebook profile photo and self-aggrandizing albums filled with people photographing themselves in front of their shower, toilet, dirty ass tub, grungy shower curtain, and public bathroom stall. The madness must stop.
Isn't the irony apparent? I don't care how fine you look, if your breasts are spilling out your top like Niagara Falls, or if your abs are as defined as the Oxford Dictionary, you are still taking a photo in a bathroom. A bathroom ya'll!
I've been in a house with a million dollar toilet (*coughkimoracough*) but it doesn't detract from the fact that is a receptacle in which to piss and shit. There is no such thing as a sexy bathroom self-portrait.
This is an epidemic that needs to be addressed, but I can't do it alone. I need your help. We need a movement, a campaign to end the bathroom self-portrait. The next time you glance yourself in the mirror and think to capture that "sexiness" in a self-portrait, stop yourself, and consider the other options:
1. A bedroom mirror
2. A toaster reflection
3. Asking a friend to take the picture for you
If nothing else, for the love of God, just get out of the bathroom.
