“The Decline of Wonkiness”

Replied to The Decline of Wonkiness (

Didn’t read the article but I like this phrase, which could be used to describe trends in so many areas.

There’s a connection between the rise of social media and a lower tolerance for wonkiness. When you’re fed photos of other people’s beautiful (staged) homes constantly, you see the imperfections in your own all the more. Something that works but is a bit wonky might not be tolerated any more, culture driving a want for perfection, to live in the dream.
