The Profound Unfairness of Going Viral | Clarissa’s Blog: “I’ve noticed people these days don’t like any message that says, “This will be extremely hard for you, but…” or, “This was a profoundly difficult experience for me…” Actually things were different in the past. For instance, Mike (my husband) joined what he took to be the most difficult section of the armed forces, just because it had that reputation for being so. Attitudes have shifted This also means that difficult texts (anything theoretical or academic) are disliked and treated with a passive hostility. Sweet is liked but sour is disliked. Fluffy is thrilling but scaly is awkward.”
