Can people #resist the urge to post sexy Election Day thirst traps?

#Vote, but make it fashion

If Instagram has taught me anything, it’s that people will use absolutely any excuse they can get their sweaty little hands on to warp something that really should not be a thirst trap into a thirst trap. Like, for example, those people who insist on taking sexy pictures of themselves at Auschwitz? And if Auschwitz isn’t off limits, I could have guessed Election Day wouldn’t be either.

I knew my socials were going to be a mess. I knew Twitter was going to be a stream of 30-year-old journalism dudes replying to my tweets about why I should get out and #voteforwomen (as if I wouldn’t remember to), but some of these sexy voting booth selfies might actually…deter me from voting?

Ok fine, they’re cute.

You know what? Whatever. If it gets us out there voting then that’s fine. Try to #resist, but I know firsthand how alluring the siren song of 250 likes can be.
