Instathoughts
Feb 14th, 2021 at 1:46pm
 
So for those of you who are on Instagram or other social media like it do you have any thoughts on women who post nothing but pictures of their body?

I am torn because on one hand Im a straight male and we are programmed to be attracted to these women. On the other hand I find them mentally and in all other ways vapid and annoying. The mindset that would cause someone to take hundreds or thousands of pictures of their butts and post it on instagram is something I cant begin to understand.

   Being a dirty old man I have no problem with women who flaunt their bodies on Instagram, as long as they're worth flaunting.

I'm with you, Morphy. I don't quite understand the constant need for reinforcement of their looks. It IS a bit narcissistic.

But if I think about it a bit more... I can also understand the motivation. I mean, whenever I post something meant to be shared, I will check quite often to see who has looked at it.   It's nice to have reinforcement that people appreciate your most recent accomplishment(s). Maybe for them, the way they look that day is what they view as their "accomplishment".  I do think that is particular goal is a bit silly, but perhaps they are as consumed by that goal as the rest of us are by our own (Slings and discs for me lately).  A different goal may serve them better...and be healthier mentally/physically in the long run, though.

I have no problem with people doing what they want, so long as it's not hurting anyone else.† If someone wants to put pictures of themselves out there for everyone to look at, go for it.† Although it does seem to push the notion of placing more importance in the cover over the content.

Nothing wrong with looking at a beautiful woman. Its not so much the pictures themselves but the, as IG put it, the narcissism of the actual person. Not all but many.

Right, cant say it much better than that.

I really dont care about the act as much as what it signifies about the person themselves. I feel the same way about male models who do the same thing. For some reason Ive always been really turned off by vain people. Not sure why.

This falls in my libertarian "ought not be done but I won't stop you" bucket.

All the 'you're allowed to' doesn't change the fact that I wouldn't want my daughters to be doing it. But then for this modern world I'm considered old fashioned. I'm not on social media anymore and I see more harm than good coming of it.

Hahaha are they body positivity role models or are they clickbait and thirst traps generating simp behaviour?
Both!
It's a multifaceted ego driven culture on social media.
I think if they want to put pics up go ahead and enjoy them. I'm not ever going to subscribe to their only fans accounts though lol

I canít speak to specific Instagram models, because I only follow ugly men with slings on Instagram.  Thankfully the people I follow do not show off their butts or any other parts of their figures, but I will say this: Lifeís simply not fair. Some people have brains. Some have beauty. Some are born rich. Others simply think the world revolves around them no matter what they do or donít contribute to society.

...And then some people are rich, beautiful, and brilliant like the model/actress who invented spread-spectrum radio:

Just be careful with what u see on Morphy's page. He is known to show some skin occasionally.



I am just glad the duckface craze is over. I always thought that they needed penicillin or an antihistamine to take down the swelling. Lol my own ducks in my flock. They are glad the craze is over. For the record the ducks are offened for having that called duckfave. They said it doesnt look like that at all.

I find the word "occasionally" incredibly offensive sir. Yesterday I was wearing a spam thong. Lots of meat in that pic. But anyways...

There are so many good viewpoints here but PS thats really where my heart is as well. I just see it as the symptom of a society descending into narcissism. Its not the cause per se though it might perpetuate it. I am solidly libertarian except for the whole open borders thing which in my opinion would be terrible for many reasons. Not the least of which it would rapidly destroy individual cultural identities  and put a massive strain on social programs.

That being said, people should be able to do what they please so long as it follows the non-aggression principle. Anyways the soap box is free if anyone feels like stepping up.
