can't find any pics of the original doomerette because the cute "goth gf" one took over and she is over the top sexualized and pornified. there is endless porn of her and it's real annoying, there are still uglier versions but they're still in this cute art style which is a plus imo I like it better than the ms pain style wojak, I also heard that they were drawn by a woman?

I posted this before on another thread, but I find it interesting how the stock "Yes Chad" caricature and the tard wife now function basically as 2010 early rage comic stick figures, to be used for random situations and memes
the original context and meaning behind them has been stripped, not their just online stock characters

I still personally prefer this version, If Doomer is supposed to represent an angsty young men in his early 20's whose given up on life, then I feel Doomer girl should represent similar attitude of a young woman whose given up on life

I was really considering using this as the thread pic
This is actually really cute but>Men have facial lines>Women have no facial muscles, only blush
It would be better if doomer girl had some eyebags like >>117130
and maybe there was some body variation to the girls without it being too Tumblr, doomers have bigger things to worry about than keeping a uwu loli figure kek. Maybe we partner up with the draw thread?>>117171
The people that made rage comics are probably making these kek. Imo Zoomer memes seem to involve repurposing screencaps more than MS Paint drawings
The Doomer girl did originate on 4chan and was shared and edited by various men on the site, but she came into her own on twitter and tumblr, she for all intents and purposes is now a different character
I mean to go tumblr sometime she's very popular there, for the same reasons the Doomer is popular with young men

I wonder if I'll eventually look back on Wojack et al and find them as cringeworthy and unfunny as I do rage comics.
Ahh probably not, they're a lot funnier than rage comics ever were even at their peak and have a lot more personality.
We absolutely will look back at wojaks and all of their variations ("doomer", "zoomer", "coomer", "boomer", etc.) and cringe at how embarrassing they were and how seriously they were taken, as if they weren't just replicas of the exact same unfunny 2000s meme faces.
I mean, teenagers are making serious video essays trying to analyze the "deeper meaning" behind wojaks, titled things like "Who Is The Doomer? - Dealing With An Age Of Hopelessness" and "From Doomer to Bloomer | My Story", comparing themselves and their life experiences to reaction images. They're already embarrassing.
I disagree, not about the cringe part but about the deeper meaning of wojaks. It's not too deep ofc but they definitely reference something more specific and personal than rage comics faces; even looking at >>117265
comparison you can tell it's all similar but wojaks are not as universally relatable as rage comics were.
I get the extreme deep analysis of badly drawn cartoons that came from 4chan is ridiculous,but I find it comforting that there's a specific type of meme that I can relate too.For example if I'm feeling like shit I can search a "doomer playlist" and find songs to listen that match my mood and see people feeling the same.It's the vibe of the songs that makes them "doomer" songs.There are also specific doomerette/doomer girl memes I've found that can be pretty relatable and seeing some other girl writing specific things that apply to me too makes me feel less alone.There's comfort in projecting negative feelings on a meme that's made to express a spectrum of negative emotions and people add their own experiences on them.maybe that was a bit spergy but that's kinda how I feel>>117307
rage memes have been around for much longer and were the first type of memes thet spread around the internet the way it did.At the time memes didn't change every other week and it took a long time till they became "outdated".Their simpler design helps too I guess
that would be an amazing video tbh kek
btw what do you guys think about memes getting repurposed after being "dead for a while?I posted this video on the dumbass shit thread a few days ago,which I found very interesting since it's a ten y/o meme and it's used from a very known company as their main advertising campaign.Like what was the decision behind using this meme as a basis for their ad campaign?The fact that the people who saw this meme 10 years ago are old enough to buy bosch products for themselves?Or a bunch of millenials who went into the marketing department of the company and wanted to make an ad campaign out of a meme?Only a specific age group will get the joke and the ppl too young or too old will just think it's a quirky commercial
(I realise this specific ad is almost 2 years old,but I saw another #likeABosch ad on tv just last week so I didn't know it was a thing till now)
Yeah, earlier memes did have an "innocent" quality that is hard to explain. Maybe from a lack of irony / being less self-aware. Also, I know the doomer personifies hopelessness, but there's a feeling of pessimism in everything now. Earlier memes seemed to have a happier worldview. And yeah, they had sincerity. I think of the XD so randum trends, "I like wafflez" humor as a genuine way to express joy and silliness. Memes were more expressing joy or other emotions but to amuse each other. It seems like now, they are still to amuse but with a sense of "things suck, don't they?" Even people trying to revive that culture, it's from a sad sense of nostalgia and feels hollow now. Or like they're still adapting it to the current mindset.
Sorry, this is kinda spergy. I know there are examples that go against my view. It's hard to describe, but the best I can say is "it was a simpler time

AYRT and I totally get what you mean. Another reason I prefer rage comics and even Pepe was that they were more universal memes that both men and women enjoyed. I definitely feel like wojak and its variations are mainly for men (which I'm not complaining about since it comes from a male-dominated website). The female versions like tradwife and e-girl are sexist and even if normies try to decontextualize them the original intent still lingers with me and I personally just find it weird.

Has any of you seen the Feels Good Man documentary? I've watched it yesterday and it's really good, even though I didn't really learn anything new (maybe except rare pepes trade), it's still worth watching given how crazy is the history of this meme; it's really upsetting that using it can make people assume you're an edgy far right neo nazi because it really is a sweet and relatable face in it's original form

Anyone remember the Lesbian/lesbian ally Thor meme, originally it started as a dumb inside joke on tumblr
basically a guy who looked like Thor politely asked a woman out on a date, she said she's not interested because she's gay and she expected the guy to become angry or embarrassed but instead he's cool with it and helps set her up with a lesbian friend of his
from there it quickly went from guy who looked like Thor to actually Thor, where he represented an Ideal male ally, not some annoying woke feminist dude but just a great guy who you know supports you and is cool. but Thor also represented the "exception" for a minority of lesbian, basically the one guy a lesbian would make an exception for, Hozier is also also an example of a exception certain lesbians havehttps://www.pinknews.co.uk/2018/05/16/thor-lesbian-icon-marvel-avengers-infinity-war/

In both cases, it seems that in terms of male allies pretty much everyone prefers a guy whose just cool with it over some leftcel dude who reads advanced theories of obscure black french radical feminists from the 1970's, cause I'm sure many of us have had bad experiences with those types of dudes, cause they often are creepy and have ulterior motives

Meme for being awkward at a party featuring feels guy who is only meant to express, well, feels…
I want quarantine to be over so American twitter will finally get out in the real world so they can stop cancelling things every other day. Also I recall reddit created the white chad wojak in the pewdiepie subreddit, because it was supposed to be pewdiepie. It wasn't even neo-nazi bullshit.
I wish people can separate the art from the artist. some people love pablo picassos art while knowing pablo picasso beats his wife. Let people enjoy memes for fucks sake.

Something I just find sorta hilarious behind the "-oomer" memes is well their origin, the meme started on /v/ when anons started getting annoyed by older users in their 30's or late 20's getting overly nostalgic for their past favorite games and so people startled calling these old nostalgic nerds "30 year old boomers" and originally all the memes were related mostly to gaming, but it spread to the rest of 4chan and the meme became less about games and more about mocking the older users on 4chan and even the rest of the Internet, as relation the "the 15 year old zoomer" meme was created mocking the gen-z users on 4chan and then it went crazy with lots of variations started being created but the Doomer variation ended up being the most popular and spread outside 4chan, mainly as a choice profile picture for twitter and youtube accounts, people became making highly specific local varieties Brazilian Doomer, Russian Doomer, Thai Doomer e.t.c and it got to a point where most people who had these profile pictures didn't what a wojak was or anything about chan culture it just found them

the whole hating british people meme (see pic related, from what I've seen it's popular in lefty zoomer places like Twitter and some subreddits) always kind of annoyed me and I didn't know why, until I saw that shuwu tweeted it and it finally clicked, it's the wokes' poor attempt at edgy humor since they can't say actually anything offensive or controversial so they settle for retarded forced memes like that and no I'm not british
sage bc kinda random and niche
also sage for off topic but I don't understand why there's any sort of animosity between America and England, we've been allies for over a hundred years now and the History of cultural exchange between American and Britain is massive. we probably have more cultural exchange then any two nations in History
My husband was in the marines and he told me that the British soldiers who he served with were like his fellow countrymen, It's bizzare how we try to differentiate ourselves from them

Alas, the internet has forgotten about Pedobear. Perhaps it is because the powers that be wish to normalize transgender twitter pedophiles, and have actively buried the meme because it would hurt their feelings.

Kinda Incredible that femwojak derived avatars are seemingly everywhere on twitter right now and with every racial variation
This phenomenon really does exemplify the quote by Richard Dawkins which is the thread pic
>An Internet meme is a hijacking of the original idea. Instead of mutating by random change and spreading by a form of Darwinian selection, Internet memes are altered deliberately by human creativity. There is no attempt at accuracy of copying, as with genes - and as with memes in their original version.
I find it Incredible in a way

something that bugs me about the twitter chan meme derivatives is that there is no coherent and flattering style.
the asians look randomly hideous in this style.
with the exception of doomerette and her wonky sperm eyebrows, 4chan is much better at designing memes for some reason. even simplistic or ugly designs (some Pepe's) just look so much better

I thought this was funny but it’s a cringe political compass wojak meme from Reddit
File: 1634157550856.jpg (48.94 KB, 567x567, E21Qc2EXMAE5Oqj.jpg)
You're wrong, my fellow latin american friend.
That's just because 4chan is autistic about their meme and wojak hate since they claim they are normalfaggy.
Same reason for why the old rage faces died. At some point reddit was using them too it seems which means that you are a redditor if you use it, so anons stopped posting them. The overzealous oldfag LARPing and forum police attitude was always one of the aspects I hated the most about 4chan.
File: 1692186716817.png (337.39 KB, 600x608, Screenshot.png)
Why do terms started in niche internet communities like 4chan or even Incel forums seem to get normalised so quickly among the general public?
The internet merging, most of the net activity is limited to a handful of places and social media is all about attention so people repost things from other places for brand purposes which means that twitter, tumblr and 4chan are more or less the same thing now.
It's boring, but the central issue is that the modern internet is an extension of real life in which people bring IRL shit in and overshare, whereas the old internet from the 90s and early 00s was a mean to escape reality. You only showed your husbando avatar and some edgy chuuni name and probably LARPed a different persona of yourself on every website you used. Whatever it was, it felt like the opposite of real life, I felt like "hiding" when I went online after school and I loved that shit. And I loved that almost nobody else was even aware that those places existed. Read all kinds of discussions there but I barely ever saw anything real life related.
Felt good browsing for ages without ever seeing any politics or celebrities being mentioned. Also, less infighting IMO. Even the conspiracy theories were still fun. Back then the biggest conspiracy theory would have been that phones are made to prevent people from thinking since they are constantly busy looking something up as soon as they have a free minute. Or something cool with Reptiloids.
Now conspiracy shit is just racist far right bullcrap.
