The Snapchat Gender Swap Filter Is Taking Over The Internet — But Is It Problematic?

returned to Snapchat this week for one specific order of business: the gender swap filter. It did not disappoint. Seeing myself as a dude made me laugh-spit out the water I was drinking, and also think about my dad (to whom I bore an uncanny and honestly really weird resemblance). I showed this version of me, in all of my hyper-masculine, jaw-defined glory to my colleagues, and in turn they showed me theirs. (Some of which were hot! Not gonna lie.)
