To Whore, or Not to Whore


Attention Whore, that is.

On a previous thread, commenter Liz wrote,

Social media, empowerer of morons en masse it is.
Before social media these people were isolated and laughed at.
Now, they spread their photos around the world collecting “likes” from other like-minded morons.
Unfortunately, the world is chuck full of ignorant morons.

Much of the behavior that the morons are engaging in could be described as attention whoring.  Furthermore, it is not just for morons, it is for respectable citizens also.

I almost never let a Facebook page touch my eyes, and for good reason.  However a few days ago I was shown a page of a local store manager.  She has recently totaled her car through her own stupid negligence, and went out to buy a new one.  Since she does not make all that much money, all that she could afford was a simple Hyundai. She took a picture of it, and trumpeted it as her new ride.  I was flabbergasted that in a very short time period, it had received 150 likes.  Nearby pictures showed her vamping it up for the camera.  I could not take it any more.  I had to avert my eyes. Here was an attention whore, plying her trade freely on Facebook.

What sin are such people guilty of?  It would be pride.  Excess pride invariably gets people into trouble.  In the typical Facebook based attention whore’s case, it is truly really, really excess pride.  Often simple stupid stuff is slapped onto the page looking for cheap likes (leading to cheap whores).  Stuff that often requires no skill, ability or anything else to generate.  If so, where does the pride come from?

But what allows this all to work is community whoring; that is “I will like your stuff if you like my stuff”.  So it all becomes one big whorey orgy.

Where does it all end?  Perhaps some people will tire of the silliness and leave.  Good for them.  Others will live in this fantasy world forever.  And that can’t be good.  Pride before the fall and all that.

    You won’t find me on facebook or anywhere else. The day you see a selfie of me is the day you’ll know I’ve been taken over by an alien with a macabre sense of humor.

    Even if I were blessed with MSGL, the last thing I’d want to see is my own mug. What use is it to me? I can’t shag it, whank it, thrust it into orifices, use it as a codpiece or even as an arsewipe.

    People who are into selfies are so different from me, they might as well rub blue chalk on their forelocks and go tup themselves.

  25. I hate to admit I used to follow Facebook, but luckily I found red pill blogs and decided to spend my online time there instead. Facebook was originally kinda useful as it allowed me to share photos and keep everyone in my life posted about stuff. But then it started to turn into land of the attention whores, and it got really old to see so many people sharing an airbrushed version of their life — more how they wish or imagine it to be than how it really was.

    I know a gal similar to the one described in the post. At Christmas she posted every gift, not in thanks or acknowledgement but more like a brag of her materialistic gains. When she put on a Frozen themed party for her daughter, there were more photos of the over the top decorations (a kids bday party for 50, with tables capes and decor more complex than a wedding? Really???) but not ONE of her daughter. Just photos of all her “hard work.” Sad. When she left her marriage for another man, posting a profile pic of herself all cuddled up to hom not two weeks after kicking her children’s father to the curb, again she used Facebook to control the narrative, simultaneously bashing her husband to gain empathy while trotting out her new man shamelessly. I can only imagine what that must have felt like to her husband. :/ attention whore is probably putting it too nicely.

    And like the gal above the mindless masses click “like” by the dozens, only fueling her narcisstic ways. And rubber stamping her self centered ways.

    Not good. I only use Facebook for my biz anymore. Otherwise, scanning through the feed reveals too much more of the same as above.

    Solipsism + social media = attention whore paradise.

    “What to do, if anything?”
    I’ve been saying for years that social media will die out, and people will think of it like some stupid trend they used to do. So far it has far far outlived my expectations. Guess the draw of being “popular” is just too powerful.

    “How to prevent children from falling into the trap?”
    I don’t know about daughters, but my sons don’t do social media (Facebook, et al). I think the only way to avoid it is to stay away.

    I’m on Facebook, but 60% of the time it’s just to support and share posts of my store and answer questions about events. The other 40% is dedicated solely to sharing funny or thought provoking videos with my friends. The only pictures of myself that are on Facebook are ones other people have tagged me in, lol.

    We do “Like” each other’s posts, but none of them are selfies. For example, one of my high school friends just found a good job after being unemployed for the last 5 months. He has 93 “Likes” and 46 comments of congratulations, one of each which was definitely from me. I give out thumbs-up on Facebook for the same reason I do here: Because I agree with the comment, not to give an ego boost.

    If I were a parent, I’d be sure to limit the amount of time children spend on any social media. It’s not exceptionally healthy, can lead to idiotic cyber bullying, and many kids post dangerous levels of personal information.
