    If it's a film or book, you're called stupid. If it's a game, they just say you just suck at it. People seem to think that criticising these things is a direct attack on them. Fanatics, man.

    Yeah, I find it strange. Who the heck likes something enough to defend it in such a childish way? Or associate it as "part of who I am as a person"? I don't like anything that much. I had this issue in a conversation about "Alien Covenant" and about all the really terrible writing in the movie (not even the plotholes). I'm apparently, "too stupid" to understand "how great" it is.

    The film is so complex that you need to have studied a very specific college course to appreciate its themes and plot. :p

    That's essentially what they were saying. "If you were paying attention, the entire movie is very clear!". I began listing all the ways in which is wasn't and in which you had to go get supplemental material (including the novelizations) to even understand the plot of the movie, as the movie took no time to even properly infer things. But, I'm "too stupid" to understand the plot.

    Or if you don't like an artist, or a music style, or... anything other people love. People need to learn tolerance and show a bit more empathy.

    It's not strange--it's all too common.
