me: i don’t get what meta enabling is
i should go find two good examples!
well.. i think it’s pretty much EVERYTHING on daily intel??
(most of which is the good version?)
jezebel does it a lot.
like with TYRA. haha
me: but why is it enabling
i don’t get that part
me: i get, like, the idea of writing about lowbrow things in a “highbrow” way
that’s like, not a new idea
Choire: because it’s apparently CULTURE DEGRADATION.
me: oh i… disagree?
me: wait did i tell you that when i was at jury duty
me: you have to answer all these questions, like age, occupation, marital status, etc
(there were no gays btw)
me: you also had to say what your hobbies were?
and i said watching reality TV
me: which i guess would be META ENABLING
that’s FUNNY though!
me: everyone laughed.
it was one of those MOMENTS OF LEVITY
Choire: i would have been like, “oh girl.”
me: when you’re in the courtroom with an accused murderer
THIS IS HIS REALITY
now look what you’ve done!
Choire: uh oh
no but srsly so … these types of posts are enabling the degradation of culture
and it’s meta-enabling because… why?
because the format of the post is what’s doing the enabling?
that’s what i gather!
[Yeah, see, no one has any fucking clue.]
