Wordier nietzsche referencing answer below Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Nietzsche is read pretty subjectively. I doubt if thewho will find anything in there that will really change his perspective. You could argue that the communal creation of ethical norms is the nature of standard formation and so within that community you are bound to it and it has some sort of proscriptive value. Or that Nietzsche's analysis is actually just descriptive and that while there is no real metaphysical force to the ethical norm the community acts that way. The community, much like anything/one else that calls upon metaphysical justifications, is without any ground to stand on but has its methods to create some sort of illusion of justification (force or some absolute like God)
And this is without speaking to the idea that "community" is a weak philosophical concept. I dont like to reference nozick but he has a point. There is no community monster that holds a collective consensus, just individuals who at time (and not unanimously) agree to certain things

your post is just saying what my post was implying (although I'm replacing god with fashion)

Yo I made the post. If you looked at the comment that this pic came from, which was linked to in my post, you'd see that people upvoted it because the guy obviously needed advice. That's what WAYWT is for over at MFA.

To be fair, WAYWT posts on MFA sometimes get a lot of upvotes because the person is a newb looking for advice, and people will vote it so the guy's pic is more visible. And I think their "top" monthly posts just aggregate all the posts with the most upvotes.

You look just like a skinnier version of me.

Very little is pushed in the way of boundaries, as people there neither demand new and interesting forms nor could they--as a community--come to a consensus and recognize one if it bit them on the ass.

thewho - i like you. you are cool.

That being said, MFA is one of the better places to get advice if you fall into that demographic. It's fairly bland, but "the MFA uniform" of OCBD/Levi's/CDB'S is a vast improvement over what an overwhelming majority of these dudes were previously wearing.

I also think it gets a bad rap because the front page is full of "befores", and so an uninitiated visitor is greeted with overwhelming awfulness.

I also respect the patience of the guys that stick around and are able to help all of these kids, as the level of cluelessness of your average redditor is sometimes astounding.

Dunno why there's so much talk about this. I think it looks cool.

(In the same way that the moo sock fit is probably one of the most quoted fits on the forum.)

If Moo's sock fit isn't in your inspiration folder there's something wrong with you.

I feel like contributing, although I do realize this is about as bland as my last outfit, if not more.

i liked it more in the non detail shot, when it looked more b/w monochrome. but why are you standing on a chair?

Are you able to button the cardigan?
