Force kids in school to read crappy, overrated books that are “the best books ever written” solely because they’re “classics” and then call those kids idiots because those aren’t the kind of books they like to read and sit back and wonder why we…
For someone who is so vocal about their opinion, you’re very opposed to other people having opinions.
I got a C in English because I had to read and re read Of Mice and Men. I could not give a flying fuck if it is a classic. If it has opened people up to whatever revolutionary ideas that the books plot centres around. I literally couldn’t care less. I found them boring.
High school is a hard enough time. I like the English Language, I like our rules and our way of speaking and how there’s so much optional customisation on it. but I hated English for having to read things that are no longer relevant to my time, that some old person sat down and thought “yes, these hormonal youths should read this for a good 4 months and study it in depth” when it was boring as fuck.
Your analogy can be translated to “you like chocolate but you don’t like coffee” or “you like ketchup but don’t like tomatoes” HOW DARE YOU. Bullshit basically.
The fact that they’re classics is irrelevant. If you like them, fine. If you appreciate them, fine. It is allowed for people not to have an interest in it and it’s allowed for them to post their opinion on their blog and for others to agree.
I’m also not saying you can’t disagree, but you’re not just posting an opinion, you’re judging people you don’t know based on an opinion that is literally a paragraph and that’s unfair.
