When will the world start to recognise its real problem?
Lizzy Greene, the creator of the phrase “mean joes” on social media, is hoping that the word “mean” is being widely misused to describe the problem.
In an article published on her website on Tuesday, Greene said she hopes the trend of “mean tweets” will be reversed as the internet becomes more accepting of people’s views.
She wrote: “My intention is to be more of a ‘me, me, me’ person and avoid using ‘mean’ as a catch-all term, but I’m not going to stop until we do.”
In her article, Greenes writes that many people in her generation “see themselves as people who are ‘mean’, and they are using the word to justify their behaviour.”
Greene also wrote that she wants to be a “good example for my kids and myself” by using the phrase when they’re around.
“In the future, I hope that our young people will see themselves as being able to use ‘mean tweets’ as they use the word ‘mean’,” she wrote.
“And they will know that their behaviour is not normal, and they will be able to stop it and learn from it.”
The article is titled ‘Me, me and me’ and reads: “Me, Me, Me” means the same thing as the phrase, “me, I, I”.
“The word ‘me’ is a catchall term for anything that someone has done that you don’t like.
And it means something very different to ‘mean’.” It is unclear what the word means, or whether it has been used in a derogatory manner in the past.
“When I was young, people would say ‘me’, ‘me,’ ‘me.’
But when I was older, I realised that they were saying something about me, my life, my feelings and feelings of self-worth.
The world’s acceptance of our true feelings is a good thing.””
The world needs to stop pretending it doesn’t exist.”
Greene said that in the next year or so, the word will become more widely used in our culture and that it will also become “more accepted in the mainstream.”
She wrote that the term was “totally unacceptable” and it’s time for people to stop thinking “me” as a negative word.
“It’s time to be better than that.
We have been doing this since the dawn of the internet, and it is time to change.
It is time for us to stop being ‘mean’.”
It is time.
