Why does this thread bother you so much, this is the second time in less than a week you've commented on the cringe of people vocalizing their cringe, which seems rather ironic don't you think? Not attacking, I'm just curious honestly.
Honestly? Because in my time on the internet, I’ve seen the whole concept used to bash dopey kids just enjoying themselves a lot. I’ve seen it used to bash people minding their own business, but doing anything deemed uncool.
The concept may have a fitting time and a place, but from what I’ve seen, it’s almost never used for that. And, frequently, it’s used BY people who are more worthy of the term than the person they’re mocking.
In general, to me, it feels like the grown-up online version of middle schoolers calling other middleschoolers uncool because they like something the other kid doesn’t. And I don’t dig that.
