Rant of the Week: The Lies Perpetuated by Pinterest DIY Projects
I was sitting on the couch with my tranny friend last night, chatting about random things. She had spent 3 hours trying to re-create some interesting nail design she saw on Pinterest. The photo was one of colorful flourishes and floral swirls. Her thumbnail looked like the back room of a butcher’s shop.
Then it struck me: Pinterest is inundated with thousands of DIY projects that no normal human being could recreate. Google Pinterest Fails if you don’t believe me. Pinterest is a great way to stave off boredom and plan weddings that you could never afford and apartments you could never find, but DIY is supposed to stand for “do it yourself” not “do it myself”, and by “myself” I am referring to the one super-crafty bored, sexless housewife that has time to create the perfect crafts, only to shove it in the faces of much busier people that only have time to dream.[ via ]
