About

Enabled/Disabled is a four-panel exploitable series comparing two similar images, designating one of them "enabled" and "disabled" (similar to Drakeposting).

Origin

The earliest known usage of the meme was posted by Instagram [1] user @loose_condom on December 6th, 2017. That day, he posted a four-pane meme. In the top half of the image, he had a screenshot of a Music "enabled/disabled" toggle switch from a computer operating system set to "Enabled" next to a picture of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra[2] brass section. The bottom half featured a picture from a Pool of Sound Initiative[3] event, in which people with physical and learning disabilities perform music. Next to this picture was the same toggle switch set to "Disabled," commenting on the performers disability. Within five days, the post (shown below) received 18 likes.
