Just When She Was Starting to Get a Little Likable ...

2/13/2014 4:15 AM PST, by Sarah Taylor
Is there no end to the terrible, duck-faced, self-indulgent photos of ourselves? Do we really, really need to show the world what we look like (or rather, what we don't actually look like) every hour on the hour? Is this what our self-obsessed, voyeuristic society has finally come to? Because Gwyneth Paltrow's terrible, horrible, no good, very bad duck face is sending us to hell in a hand basket -- and it's probably a handmade, organic, fair-trade, overpriced, designer hand basket. 

The above photo is Gwynnie and her new Fashion Week BFF, Reese Witherspoon, and if the two of them had an ounce of actual class put together, they probably would have realized that duck face is so out, and not taking pictures of yourself and posting them on the internet every 5 seconds is so in. 

Do better, girls. Those duck faces ... God, stop.

Lips? I only see oversized egos.

Sarah Taylor,

You have A LOT of anger in your articles and speak so negatively and cruelly about others. Can I suggest you cleanse your soul and ego of whatever is making you such a hateful person? Not every article has to be mean and bullying. It's sad that someone who can reach wide audiences does so in such a negative way. Being nice and kind are great doors for new opportunities and respect from others. With that said I'm done reading your articles until you start being a positive influence and start building up other women instead of knocking them down...

Sarah Taylor,
You are telling girls to do better? Look up "petty" and then rethink things.

You are so right. What is with you, Sarah? A couple of friends take a photo of themselves making a face and you call it "the most horrible thing" she did to her face? And like Lilo, I am finished reading your angry, spiteful and completely pointless columns. "The most horrible thing"? Oh come on.
Get some professional help, Sarah, and find out what it is that you are really angry about so you can do something about it.

Dear Sarah Taylor:
While I completely agree that duckfaces and selfies in general should become obsolete as soon as possible, allow me to remind you that aggressiveness, pettiness and gossip are also what some people consider not classy. So stop emanating negativity and be nice! Smile, and all that.
