NO. FUCK EVERYONE. I LOVE CURSIVE AND I DO USE IT ALL THE TIME. ughhhhhh it’s not even taught in schools in this state any more and that
When I was substitute teaching an English class for seniors in High School, I wrote the instructions for the day in cursive. 90% of the students couldn’t read it so I had to break them into groups and teach remedial cursive. It broke my heart and frightened me a little. Especially since all my students in Japan (Middle School) had almost flawless cursive.
How unsurprising and sad. This both breaks my heart and frightens me a little, too.
Who caaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaares. IT’S USELESS. IT’S OBSOLETE. THERE IS NO FUCKING REASON TO LEARN IT ANYMORE. ANYTHING THAT MIGHT BE GAINED FROM LEARNING CURSIVE (if you could tell me what that might be without falling back on really tired, intellectual elitist tropes, I will be amazed) COULD EASILY BE LEARNED THROUGH SOME OTHER METHOD.
I mean for fuck’s sake you sound like hand-wringing 1950s parents worried over the state of Kids These Days. Is that the kind of person you want to be?
Also cursive is extremely difficult for people with certain kinds of learning disabilities — when kids are pressured to learn it, it becomes another way the ~good~ ~normal~ kids end up being placed above the ~losers~
I know this; I had to do cursive practice plenty in school and I still can’t read it most of the time or write in it. it just doesn’t click for some people.
srsly, writing instructions on the board in cursive is like deliberately fucking over some of your students who might never be able to read that as well as others. for no good reason, really.
ooooh let’s do it in code shall we! for no discernible reason except elitism. so only the ~superior~ children can read it
While I do wish my handwriting was neater, I distinctly remember everyone in my class cheering when we reached the grade level where we would no longer be required to write all in cursive. I also distinctly remember how I was unable to finish an essay on a state exam because I had to write it in cursive, and I was grateful when I could complete tests without having to do that.
being made to write neatly in cursive sucks. though it is the basis for the highly bastardized fast form all my lecture notes were taken in
basic principal for handwriting: if it’s legible, i don’t fucking care what it looks like.

No, Jack Sparrow is the entity of “shipping”.

Plot twist: There is no third Hobbit movie. They cram the entire rest of the book into Desolation of Smaug, and they don’t tell anyone about it. So you sit in the theater for six hours, completely unprepared as the film just keeps going.
