That’s right, I admit it. I’m super guilty. I do it. I Virtue Signal.
What’s virtue signalling?
In short: preaching to the choir.
Basically when someone expresses a moral opinion just to get pats on the back from all the people who agree with them.
Social media was invented just for virtue signalling.
But you know what? I’m sure everyone at one point or another does it. We all like to say “Hey, look at me, I’m not a racist!” Like anyone suspected otherwise.
But still, everyone just pats them on the back and says “Good for you! You’re so awesome!”
So I’ll probably continue with my virtue signalling, because as I’ve said before, I’m a bit of a narcissist (and dang does that post virtue signal!). It’s hard to kill those habits.
If you see me do it again, don’t pat me on the back, just shame me until I take it down.
