there's a type of existentialism that is hard to abate. we make ourselves smaller, our voices quieter, letting the world pass us by. we need to break the pattern. stop accepting the heteronormative patriarchy. an anti-pattern
can exist with accepting queerness
as the ultimate utopia
. there is a comfort in sincerity, being "real" versus "performance". a new sincerity in cringe and vulnerability.
"exposure to cringe content might allow us to recapture our lost humanist values." Joshua Citarella
patterns fight the norm. "solutions" imply one-size-fits-all. "solutions" create patterns, where patterns create systems, and systems enforce normality. we don't need normal. we need reality. we need cringe.
