I hate memes and meme culture.

For so many reasons. I’m already fully prepared for a Big thread backfire...but is there anyone else out there that feels the same?
Not only do they stifle creativity, but they’re fueled by content thieves who are making a living off the work of others. Stealing funny tweets / jokes / images, and using them to gain a following on social media to sell sponsorships.

Outside of that, I think they genuinely stop people from sharing any original thoughts, shorten attention spans, and reduce nuanced ideas or topics to two sentences without any context or substance.

I just fucking detest it. Nothing stops me from disengaging with a person faster than “have you seen this meme?” It’s just so disinteresting, particularly when I know I’ve probably seen it from some other uninteresting person who shared it before.

Am I just old and bitter? Yes

The problem with memes (now) is that they've reached a point to where most of them regurgitate older memes, but they are slightly different variations of them. I'm over them.
