"[...] it is assumed that, if you are under 40 years old and don’t take overwhelmingly flattering selfies, you are less of a woman. It is a terrifying assumption, one that is getting more terrifying all the time."Come on. This is just another iteration of Jezebel's tired mocking of people who wear extreme makeup and post it on social media, disguised as social commentary or investigative journalism. "One student was so giggly and excited about the prospect of glitter, she set the women’s movement back a solid century." That is a real quotation.
I'm sure that if they are called on it, the editors, as usual, will be all over the comments section claiming that this is satire and that the readers just don't get it. After all, the writer is a comedian. Bored now.
