Sometimes, we’re struck with awe-inspiring examples of people working hard to achieve their dreams and earning recognition for their accomplishments. This year, for instance, the world watched transfixed as 19-year-old Simone Biles won four Olympic gold medals and set a new American record for most gold medals in women’s gymnastics. Other times, however, we’re struck with examples of people who earn overnight viral fame because the internet is a cesspool of people looking to objectify any ol’ thing. These real human beings become viral hotties and are ultimately reduced to a hashtag because we (incorrectly) don’t expect teachers, senior citizens, or prisoners to be attractive. But for the entirety of that sweet, sick, journey, they’re always #bae.
