As a meme creator, can you speak to the catharsis the playful irony provides for a generation inundated with bad news who may not be in a position to change their circumstances? Why is nostalgia so important right now? Maybe she said that liking makeup is stupid. Try this: “Why do you think that? Makeup is fun, it takes creativity, and it’s a skill you can continuously improve. What makes it worse than skateboarding, video games, or sports?” If you notice harmful behavior, try to gently expand the conversation without accusing this person. You might be able to get her thinking (and help her change her ways!)

Engage in conversation: If you’re interested in him or want to continue the conversation, you can respond with a question or a comment to keep the interaction going. It isn’t just for the sake of male validation, either. At my old job, being “one of the guys” was good for your career. Men were the gatekeepers of all the great projects and files. If they liked you, maybe they’d let you be a part of something exciting. Women allowed into the inner circle were the ones who laughed along with men critiquing the bodies of every woman who walked into the office cafeteria, or the ones who defended men who serially harassed their female employees. Women who didn’t tolerate or participate in that behaviour were sidelined in favour of women who did. As the original creator of the “Little Miss” memes, can you explain the motivation behind them and what prompted you to post them at the time? Birthed from the early days of internet culture, memes have been long used to help a generation express and navigate the experience of living in such confounding times. The inescapable impact of late-stage capitalism married with the brain-damaging onslaught of bad news, devastating climate change and political upheaval has led many young people to take solace in funny-not-funny online jokes. It’s unsurprising that today, many have returned to the nostalgic images to make light of what they’re going through.While memes provide relatable content, do you think their impact on society is harmful or helpful as the majority of its content reflects negative aspects of life? In return, he has a coterie of women who circulate the story that he’s a really good guy. When someone says a cross word about him, their response is usually something along the lines of, “Well, he’s always been really nice to me.” I don’t know if they say that because they think it’s impossible for someone to be kind to them and horrific to someone else, or because they think someone being nice to them is the only metric that really matters. “Who cares if he hurts other women? This guy thinks I’m special.” My ex keeps a small menagerie of female friends who tend to be his greatest defenders. They post photos of him on social media with a comment about what an awesome friend he is. They’re the first people to publicly praise and defend him when his name comes up. They don’t ask questions about why he can’t seem to have a stable relationship. They don’t care about the fact that he’s been ostracized from an entire community and banned from two different companies because his treatment of women. And they certainly don’t believe bitches like me who make (supposedly) unfounded accusations of abuse. I don’t know if the majority of memes reflect the negative aspects of life. I think there are lots of fun, happy memes out there. I can’t decide if the impact of memes on society is harmful or helpful though, I guess only time will tell. I do think about it sometimes especially when I remember thousands of my followers are 13 to 17 years old. I think many kids are finding a home in irony and cynicism online before they are finding love, community, and joy in real life and that really scares me. For me, memes have helped me see myself in community with others and find my own voice, but at times they have made me feel even lonelier. I worry about the long-term impacts of social media use more broadly, but I don’t know if memes can specifically be held accountable for that. In case you’re not up to snuff with the canon of British children’s literature, the characters come from an illustrated book series called Mr. Men. The series began publication in 1971 and was written by Roger Hargreaves. It now spans dozens of books, including a related spin-off called Little Miss, and even an animated television series. When Roger Hargreaves passed away, his son Adam Hargreaves took on the series.

Someone whom I consider a casual friend recently posted on social media about how women need to stop “overreacting” to men’s bad behaviour. She ranted about how women are calling “every little thing abuse” nowadays. I would speculate that if she’s putting out messages like this, then her female friends (if she has any) don’t feel terribly comfortable talking to her about their abusive experiences. Hence, she thinks it isn’t a problem because she doesn’t see or hear about it. Girl A: I can’t believe Emily said that girls should always prioritize their looks to attract guys.
