A few months ago, I was engaging in my daily meme-sourcing routine (scroll through Twitter, scroll through Instagram, scroll through Tumblr, repeat), when I stumbled upon one of those delightful “signs as” Tumblr horoscope memes. This one was, as you can see, focused on the subject of kinks. Apparently, I am and forever will be, according to Tumblr user Horoscaping, a “Kink Shamer:”
To that, I will just say: Not all Virgos, buddy! But this post got me thinking– it might actually be impossible to be a true kink shamer because, if you think about it, everyone kind of has a kink. You just might not think of it that way, because it’s not exactly sexual in nature. Or is it? Basically, there is a meme of sorts (though, really, what isn’t a meme?) via Twitter and Tumblr, that attributes any basic human emotion to being, well a kink. Using this kind of reasoning, your kink could be, I don’t know, when someone responds to one of your texts in under a minute. Or when you yourself forget to respond to a message, so you just pretend that it isn’t there. In any case, Twitter and Tumblr understand what your kink *actually* is–check ’em out here:
