Fox, …… offers a defense of acting like someone you’re not. It’s the way we cross boundaries and discover new lands. Sometimes we look silly doing it, but that’s a small price to pay.
Def 1. Pretention: an aspiration or claim to a certain status or quality.
Def 2. The use of affectation to impress; ostentatiousness.
The reason pretension is frowned upon isn’t because it’s experimentation, it’s posing to impress others or to fit in with the cool kids. The opposite of going your own way even if it’s unpopular. True creatives don’t give a hoot what other’s think.
