No Filter

November 22, 2013

Seems to be the phrase for 2013.

    I’ve never heard it used. What’s it about?

      Currently, it is being used in two ways although I was only referring to the way that LaRedactora mentions.

      In social media, “no filter” has turned into another pretentious tag that means a person’s selfie (photograph) is so beautiful and perfect that no filter (sort of like no Photoshop) was used to enhance. But, that is all a wink and nod because most of the time a filter is in fact used. It’s like the super skinny girl complaining she is fat and soliciting people to tell her how she is not fat.

      The no-filter I was referring to has replaced “no tongue-biting.” Of course it has been highjacked to imply all sorts of things, mostly an excuse to be an asshole.
