We always do threads like “What songs are you embarrassed to like?” or “What movies would you never admit to liking?” But what about stuff that you cannot admit in public that you don’t like?
For instance, I don’t like Elmo from Sesame Street. There’s a lot of adults who don’t like Barney or the Teletubbies, but everyone I know just adores Elmo. But I don’t like him. I don’t know why I don’t. There’s no one reason, I guess. I just don’t see his appeal.
Also, I don’t like the movie “2001: A Space Odessey.” Yes, it’s a masterpiece. I understand that. But I couldn’t get involved in it, and I don’t understand it, and I didn’t like the ending. People act as though it’s a crime to not love this movie.
I’m sure there are more, but that’s what comes to mind right now.
It’s not even so much that I’m embarrassed to not like this stuff. But if I mention my true opinion to people, they act as though I had said that Lincoln was wrong for abolishing slavery.
