Only the latest example in a long row:
Isn't it funny how many male critics are getting all excited and enthusiastic if a photo showing a nude or semi-nude woman is (or pretends to be) a self portrait? Even if there's no evidence guys are asking a female photographer if their nude shot is a self. And I would guess any mediocre female nude will get twice the rating if the critics believe it's a self portrait.
I'm not going to blame anyone but would seriously love to understand the psychological or cultural background of this phenomena. Any theories or suggestions?
