It’s undeniable that Reddit really can be one of the most toxic, vile pits of misogyny and racism that you can find anywhere on the internet. I’m not gonna even dignify those subreddits by naming them. Everyone knows who they are.
But there are great sides to the site too. The ‘Ask Me Anything’ sub is a place for beloved celebrities to answer questions in an often funny or endearingly self-deprecating way. Or for reactionary boneheads like Jordan Peterson to get roasted alive after coming in expecting a soft-handed approach. The ‘AskReddit’ sub is one of my favourites, as it really harvests the collective knowledge and wit of the best of Reddit to deliver answers on topics that range from the humorous side of things to the insightful and informative—the latter especially true when under-represented groups are addressed. And then there are subs that appeal for reasons varying from vicarious thrills to incredible frustration to gonzo madness.
My latest favourite?
The sub’s tagline: ‘Aww, they’re so stupid.’ Says it all really. The heart emoji is silent.
