there’s a lot of elitism in “bookworm” culture
like you’re basically worthless if you don’t like to read and this weird little culture kind of ignores that some people really struggle with reading/can’t read at all
- not everybody has access to books. there was a study done that showed 1 book per every 300 low income children. books cost money. books cost time. reading isn’t going to be a priority if you’re low on these two resources.
- learning disabilities are a thing that exist. i used to love to read when i was a kid, before I developed a mental illness that sometimes functions as a learning disability and makes it so difficult to read books that it often frustrates me to the point of tears and i’ve finished probably one whole book in the past 2 years. many, many learning disabilities specifically affect reading, and you don’t know just by looking at someone whether they have one of these disabilities.
- people learn in different ways. you might be really good at grammar (whoopdefuckindoo) and somebody else might spend all their time watching the news and know everything about current events. maybe that person you think is “stupid” because they said they didn’t like reading is an amazing artist. maybe you suck at art. you never know

I want to hear your argument
omg are you expecting a full on critique of their actual music with the technical stuff because im incapable of doing that
i dont actually think they’re the worst band i actually was obsessed with torches last year to the point where it became practically my life soundtrack but i honestly think my music tastes have sort of changed since then and now mark fosters voice sounds really really annoying (i feel the same about fun./nate ruess’s voice too but thats another story) they also remind me of a pathetic time of my life
yeah thats about it im a lame hater

“Blow minds, not dudes”
Actually you can do both! What a concept! That women can be intelligent as well as sexually active! And we don’t live in the goddamn 18th century and women don’t have to be pure little virgin housewives if they don’t want to! Oh my gosh!
