You Like My Photos, But Not My Thoughts

Hans Vivek

I’ll post a picture and get over 500 likes. But if I’m posting knowledge, maybe about 20 likes?

You like my pictures better because it gets straight to the point? My brown eyes tell a better story?

My legs and small waist is clear and you don’t have to read between the lines?

The drooling emoji if I turn to the side but a scroll pass if I’m speaking my mind?

Is it because we don’t like to be educated? Our generation aren’t intellectuals? We don’t like to read?

I think so.

You don’t like to be challenged? You want someone easy?

Would you say it’s almost intimidating?
