The Awl exposes the shocking truth about “OMG Cat” and other “adorable” YouTube cat images: “So, when you think about it, people being dead silent in their cat videos, knowing the audience hates when human intent meddles in their cute kittens… Combined with the fact that we DON’T CARE that the cats are sick or dead… It really says a lot about the patrons of this art. We don’t care about the cats themselves, or the people bringing us the cat pictures or videos. We just care about the ‘OMG cuuuuuute’ chemical reaction we get out of it. It’s pornography.”
Ugh, you guys. What a way to start the morning. I feel sick and guilty and terrible.
