what does gpoy mean

anonymous asked:

okay I have to ask it: what does gpoy mean?

Oh god, that is perhaps me SHOWING MY AGE? It stands for “gratuitous picture of yourself,” which, I believe, originally actually was used to signify selfies when Tumblr was in its infancy. As time went on, as with most things, it shifted into meaning something more like “I identify with this.” For example, using it as a tag on a gif of a bunny rabbit that falls over because it’s so tired. My “gpoy” tag is things I over-relate to.

Hope that helps!
