For a long time, I didn’t take memes seriously. They felt too good to be true. Fun, easy, useful, and democratic. What’s the catch?
Here’s the thing… there’s no catch! Memes are a vital and flexible form of communication, especially for “serious” topics like learning differences and ADHD.
I don’t think people understand the complexity of memes. Each time someone makes a version of a meme, it gains a new layer of meaning. We use them to track how ideas evolve. Creating and sharing them helps connect us to the world.
Of course, memes are also gloriously dumb. That’s part of their charm. They can be smart and dumb at the same time.
