Guilty Pleasure versus Hate Watching
Guilty pleasure is when
you watch something that you know is supposed to be bad,
and everyone else is talking about how bad it is,
but you enjoy it.
You feel kind of a sense of -- You're kind of ashamed of it.
Then there's hate watching, which is
the same thing where you're watching something that you know is bad,
but you feel superior to it.
And you love to blog about how stupid these people on reality TV are.
Who would watch that? And all that jazz.
So these are related concepts.
You're watching something that you know to be bad,
and you're either feeling shameful for doing it
because society tells you to feel shameful.
or you are feeling superior to it,
And either way, you're doing the exact same thing
just with a different result.
