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?
Sorry, I just think it’s beautiful and it makes me sad that people are losing the art of handwriting! I do think there’s something to be said for handwritten things and I don’t think that makes me a Bad Person, damn. In any case I’m in the minority on this issue anyway!
