      I get that some people don’t enjoy reading, that’s fine not judging we all have different passions. Just admit it rather than giving bullshit excuses as to why you won’t read something. Or simply being prejudiced for lack of understanding. Some works are meant to be fun and frivolous, others are meant to challenge you. ‘The Color Purple’ has ripped me to shreds so many times but I still love it. Context and an open mind are key to reading. If you don’t enjoy it after reading fair enough that is your right. I would have every copy of James Joyce’s ‘Ulysses’ recycled if I could. I fucking hate that book.

      I’m also biracial and I love this book. It is challenging and heartbreaking but that doesn’t make it bad literature. Contextually the novel is set in the 1930’s was started in the late 1950’s and published in 1960 so it is a product of its time (of inequality and injustice) and partially inspired by real events. Being the protagonist does not make Scout the hero, whilst she does have an impact on some events, she is the lens for the story. Also whilst the story of injustice caused by racial prejudice is highly important for obvious reasons ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’ covers other broad themes. Class structures in the white and black communities separately and together and (briefly) the lack of acceptance from both sides of the biracial family, loss of innocence, faith, societal constructs and their restrictions, what it meant to be a man or a woman at the time and having the courage to do the right thing in the face of massive opposition and that is not an exhaustive list. Things that we as a species are still working through even now. Scratch beneath the surface of the child like perspective and the rabbit hole goes pretty deep.

      You guys do realise that this was a quiz asking people whether their OPINIONS on love are the same as everyone else right? Obviously by the results people’s opinions on this are not the same. Just because one person believes they couldn’t romantically love more than one person or vise versa does not make either factually correct. It’s just how they feel. By saying they could not do so does not deny polyamorous relationships or say they are wrong, just that they believe it’s not for them. It is an opinion they are entitled to have as long as it does not lead them to discriminate against people who believe the opposite.
