My work friend Joe, who is a millennial, was commenting the other day that he has lots of acquaintances that just can’t shut up about their sexuality on Facebook, twitter, etc. Be it their turn-ons/turn-offs, kinkiness, SJW posturing, latest fads embraced, etc, they are there and they are telling the world about it. I don’t follow people’s social media, but I have noticed that people Amy Schumer and Lena Dunham seem to have little inhibitions in this regard. Note that most all of it is no redeeming value, adds nothing to intelligent discourse.
I am trying to figure out if this is a real change in people, or is it just that we have social media today that is an enabler. Furthermore, it could be in my case that I have changed as I got older, not so much the young people changing.
But then maybe people are encouraged/rewarded by becoming shallow attention whores, so that is what they do.
What do you people think?
