Has the definition of insanity that goes something like “doing something repeatedly despite blah blah blah” been proven false yet? I think a lot of us do this, whether it’s hate-reading whatever Katie Roiphe is trolling us with this week, or hate-verbing noun. I just have to scan my Tumblr dashboard at any given time and someone will be participating in the above. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with being familiar with the “enemy”. I don’t think any of us are technically insane for doing so, though you could argue that our time is more valuable. My thing is clicking on and still reading articles about Girls because people still think there are things to say about it at this time (there aren’t) when those articles are just a thinly-veiled pat on the writer’s own back for “getting it” (hint: your article’s intent is about as subtle as the show you’re writing about).
