On social networking sites, oftentimes individuals – especially college-aged Americans – post a certain type of profile picture that makes them completely unappealing to the opposite sex, so there is virtually no danger of impregnating another or becoming impregnated. Usually such photos involve individuals making strange faces, posturing themselves oddly, or exhibiting behaviors that compromise their individual dignity. Unlike compromising photos which are posted by third-parties who may have taken the photo and “tagged” the individual in an awkward situation or pose, the Birth Control Photo (BCP) is a photo that is self-posted by the individual in the picture.
“My brother is always posting Birth Control Photos of himself on facebook in tight jeans making strange faces. He’s never going to get laid.”
