Welcome to my smartass series, Anti-Meme Fridays.
In a fruitless effort to spread my loathing of motivational memes, every Friday I’ll be posting some new meme-hate. Forever.
I’ll post two memes every week. The first one, I’ll put up an actual meme I pulled from Facebook or Twitter, and I’ll deconstruct its logic in the most sarcastic way possible. For the second one, I’ll post something anti-motivational and/or funny. Because…really…that’s all a good meme should aspire to be.
Enjoy! Oh, and please be assured this is all in good fun. I’m doing this to combat the stress of writing extremely dark fiction all day long.
If you’ve spent any time on the web, you’ve probably seen memes like this. They’re all the same. They state something stupid and unscientific like, “People who are _________ are usually smarter, better looking, funnier, and 300% more awesome than the rest of society.”
It’s pretty obvious these are ALL clickbait. The sites spreading them pander to bored social media users who click and share their crappy little memes like wildfire. I’ve seen: “Introverts make better lovers” “Weirdos are smarter” and “Colorblind people have higher IQ’s.”
C’mon people. These things are narcissistic trash. You’re better than this.
Actually….maybe you’re not.
I’m weary of the whole #_______LivesMatter movement.
Can’t we all just agree that in a universal sense, #NoLivesMatter?
