Moff’s Law or Why We Will Read Critically, and Have Opinions
My name is Evvy, and I… I have opinions.
I will tell them to people, sometimes.
Sometimes while the film is playing and they want me to just shut up.
Sometimes in class when my seat partner and the professor roll their eyes and whisper ‘not again, Evvy’, when my hand goes up after reading an article.
I had spent many years being told not to ‘nitpick,’ or ‘why can’t you just shut up and enjoy the ____’? For a long time, I had no good response to that.
This is the law of Moff, and it is called Moff’s Law.
It is the elegant defense of our right, as viewers/readers/consumers to question, to critique, to think about what we are seeing and have opinions, and in other ways show that we are not a pack of brain-dead people in front of a screen.
Here at FYCD, we don’t always post opinion or critique.
But when we do.
We live under Moff’s Law.
