>>97907563>What they're doing is showing happiness by doing something silly so that they aren't judged for their smiles. They aren't confident enough to be judged like a normal man so they take another route.
A normal, reserved smile always looks weird if you've got a babyface, and making like you're doing le funny scream in photos gives the impression that your quiet night of watching Steven Universe was really a wild, viking rager.
They all want to be chads, but they're too smug to acclimate to the chad environment, so they just pretend that their own hobbies are just as rambunctious because they're insecure.
You can't just have a quiet night in with a cup of tea and some vidya, it's gotta be "HEY TWITTER, HAVING AN EPIC NIGHT IN WITH SOME TRULY EPIC TEA IN MY THINKGEEK MUG, PLAYING SOME HARDCORE VIDEO GAMES, GETTING MAD AT THE CONTROLLER HAHA IT'S WILD OVER HERE, JUST HAVING A BIG OL' ME PARTY, MY LIFE IS EXCITING, I PROMISE".
It's the same mentality that causes people to quote that "I'm a gamer, not because I have no life, but because I choose to have many" shit; they're too insecure to just like their thing, so they bend over backwards trying to convince EVERYONE else of how it's just as good as what the mainstream likes (even when they're oblivious to the fact that the thing they like has been mainstream all along).
