Can we not be ‘fake deep?’

In this age of readily accessible memes and Tumblr pictures about love, beauty, and liberation, everyone can be “deep.” We can post pictures of the ocean or pensive selfies, and caption it with a quote from BrainyQuote and watch the retweets and likes roll. We know how to snap when we hear peer-friendly buzz words about oppression and we can offer, “mmmmm” when we hear something we really like.
