Who's The Critic

It is just too easy to be a critic. To be a critic takes no persuasive skills. Some critics are so good at their craft they can't even find room to hide behind the courage it took to speak out.

There is an article linked to "Some" at the start of the second line.

It may not take persuasive skills to be a critic, but it does take persuasive skills to be a good critic. Therin lies the important difference.

I really wanted to stop reading at the first word "Feminist". What good can come of an article like this? Next the papers will be printing articles from gay men about how they think he is dead because he wore such bland clothing. Sickening.

Ahhh...I see! Der. I went to college! I agree with Joey. Anyone can criticize, but can they persuade me to believe them? That's what I actually learned in college, believe it or not--to read with discernment!

It is just too easy to be a harsh, faultfinding critic - any can do it and the article I linked to displays how sad things can get.
