The prompt of this assignment was to fill in the blank: "Gender Is ____". I decided to connect this concept to the "selfie," since I am constantly appalled by the older generation's portrayal of the selfie as this big bad societal fad-- engendering narcissism and self-absorbed individuals. Posting a selfie is really powerful; it is self-affirming and builds self confidence. At any rate, I had a lot of fun with this project. Asking strangers (and some people I already knew) to take selfies was a really interesting experience, and some people were put off by the idea. I'm happy with the turn out; I think it's a really interesting look into how people view the opposite gender and how they think the other gender is trying to be perceived.
