I know that /lit/ is (or at least was) full of Heideggerians. But what about Merleau--Ponty? I tried reading some of his essays, but they seemed much worse than Heidi. What are your thoughts on pic related?

wut? Merleau-Ponty is easier than most philosophers to read, and accessible enough you could put most of his shit as an article in a women's magazine and nobody would notice, they would just think it's the "smart" piece for the issue. Heidegger on the other hand made up new terms which even Heideggerians don't always understand, wrote and taught with a strong accent, and is prone to dropping into Greek at random.
I don't think you've read either and I'm going to bump this so other people can laugh at you too
read the dharma for true phenomenology+ a manual on how to experiment it through meditation.
Western pheno. is just garbage spouted by liberal-rationalists trying save their Human Rights after post-structuralism and post-positivism.
