if artistic people are forced to take years of math and science then why don’t sciencey people have to take art and music classes
someone found a real life plot hole
Um, we (sciencey people) do though. I’m not certain of how EVERY university works, but as far as I know “In order to produce more well-rounded students” i.e gather more tuition money from credits, schools have “Liberal Studies” requirements which includes Humanities and Fine Arts as well as Maths and Science requirements. TMYK.
I think they probably meant more as part of basic education. Art/Music is around for elementary school but disappears once you hit junior high or is optional. And the classes you do have to take at this level are not considered near as important (the average person doesn’t have someone telling them they’ll never get into a decent college if they don’t pass middle school Art). Whereas math/science is continually present and always required (until upper University level) and the importance of it is continually stressed. And if any part of a curriculum is going to be cut math/science is generally safe. Generally speaking they’re valued more highly than the arts.
This is sadly very true. Regrettably, I wasn’t thinking about that aspect of it at all.
if someone’s happy doing their strange weird thing and they’re not hurting anybody then that’s really awesome and you should just let them be and maybe even be glad for them
so many people are scared shitless to show anybody what makes them happy or excited because there are so many people eager to point and laugh
hey how about we stop ragging on people who self-diagnose bc not everyone has access to mental health care facilities and resources and hey maybe just MAYBE someone who chooses to self-diagnose is not merely searching for mental illnesses to use as interesting trinkets with which to garnish their personality but rather seeking out an explanation for difficulties that are impacting their day-to-day life in order to make sense of how they feel and figure out a way to make things better
