    It’s less about “new content” on Lemmy and more about “I have a social media addiction and need constant content to satisfy my insatiable media habit”. A lot of us are guilty of this, me included.

      Honestly, I’ve been enjoying not having an infinite amount of content to scroll through anymore. I get off of it a lot more and do other things. It’s been nice.

      Plus, memes last longer on here. I started falling behind on Reddit every week. Here a meme might last up to a month

      Look, I don’t put up with it when my therapist says this shit to me and I’m certainly not gonna take it from some internet rando! Quit attacking me and say something funny about Taylor Swift’s acorn tricorder

      This is sad, but true ! But I have to say that lemmy decreased my binge scrolling I had with reddit, so it partially solved that addiction.

      I used to be into sadism, necrophilia, and bestiality… but then I realized I was just beating a dead horse.

    Noooo you can’t make new memes or enjoy lemmy-specific content! We need political memes and 5th-generation Facebook reposts ONLY!

    I don’t understand how some people worship Pop idols and defend them against any criticism, doesn’t matter how many private jets you own if you end up taking the same amount of flights on one jet or three jets. one Private jet is already one too many in the context of combating climate change.

      I haven’t said anything on the subject before, because I don’t care very much, but I don’t know what the alternative is supposed to be. It’s not like someone who is that famous can walk into a public airplane without putting her own safety at risk and causing trouble for other passengers.

      It’s also well known that conservatives really hate her because she told her fans to vote and these memes are part of their effort to discredit her. Whether the point has any merit or not, it’s obvious who started the trend and who it’s helping.

        1. you don’t need to fly everywhere.
        2. you can totally fly first class. damn she can afford to have first class to herself.
        3. even if the private flight is the “logical” step, you can still critizise it. things can be complex.
        4. it’s a small and complex balance to keep supporting women in art and still shitting on billionaires, but we can do it.

      The people defending Swift don’t worship her, they’re just scared she’s being criticized for the wrong reasons. They think everyone calling her a polluter is lying or mistaken about their political motivations, and is actually influenced by misogyny.

        Everyone, no.

        A lot of people joining a bandwagon started by a few who started for that reason, sure.

        It won’t matter one bit though, and T Swift acorn bombing a pig is pure meme gold.

        Oh, ok. I was expecting something more damning, but I guess that goes against her public image.

        Thanks.

            This is actually the real problem, which makes me feel like the memes are justified. They really didn’t start showing up til the C&D anyway (AFAIK).

            I’m a feminist and left-leaning guy, I’m certainly not gonna go after her for being a woman or for her “politics”* - or appreciate jokes that seek to do so, as people are trying to imply in this case. But trying to avoid the deserved scrutiny of hiding her flight plans is pretty shitty and it’s fair to razz her for it

            (* “go vote” is so barely politics it’s not worth truly acknowledging it as such)

          Apparently she recently took a 13 minute flight on her private jet. That’s a pretty bad look.

            She might not have even been on the plane. It’s pretty common for private jets to have short flights like that to move them to get serviced.

          It’s a thin thread they can use to attack a potential popular endorsement of Biden.

          Some of them are genuine iterations on the existing meme, but the meme primarily exists to dampen her influence on politics.

            That’s a really dumb interpretation. The people who would think lesser of her for her jet travel are distinctly NOT the people who would’ve avoided voting for Biden over Trump or any other R.

              It’s not about choosing a candidate, especially with Taylor. It’s about going out to vote or not.

              They were fucking terrified that Taylor and Kelce were gonna endorse Biden at the Super Bowl. It’s not a coincidence that the jet thing was picked up at the same time.

              And they’re afraid they were gonna get out the vote for the young, who are notoriously left-leaning non-voters.

                I agree, I think it would be pretty foolish to assume there was nobody behind the memes but the people. Here we all are denouncing Swift when she was actually spreading a good message about getting out to vote.

    I was going to order an “obnoxious complaining about other people having fun wrong” meme, but you just used the last one.
