    I absolutely hate when guys takes their shirts

    off for a picture. Or when they put the middle finger up because they are so "badass". It's not cute. It's immature and it shows that you can't take a decent picture. Same for the ladies. Dressing half naked for a picture attracts the wrong type of man.
