photo comments, back in the day

A photo is posted on social media, and inevitably someone in the photo comments with, "ugh, untag me in this, I look awful" or "what the hell was I wearing, I look 20 pounds heavier" or "worst picture ever, I am making a stupid face" and so on.

With all of this self-deprecation so visible to us on a regular basis, you can't help but wonder if we've somehow become an incredibly self-absorbed, appearance-focused society. Then, vintage photos like these are discovered and we realize, we aren't so different from our ancestors afterall. We've always been an incredibly self-absorbed, appearance-focused society. Gee, isn't that comforting?
