Kek. Good luck with all of the writing you'll have to do.

I had the highest grade in my English class actually.

Writing a scientific paper on a topic you love is a whole lot different from writing a paper on some socialist propaganda in the form of a book which was shoved down your throat by a cultural marxist professor.

I actually wanted to major in english and philosophy until my sophomore year.

Currently in grad school for pure math.

Have you got any 300k starting offers yet?

>>7779056
No. They're both pretty much the same thing. You use evidence to prove a point. If you did not consider English class one of your favorite classes then you will never be a good scientist.

I'm attending uni in my third language, I taught English for a while, which is my second language, not to mention I've gotten the highest grade in English in the two countries I've lived

try harder

holy shit. writing science isn't "arguing a point", it's presenting your findings. you sound like you would make for the worst kind of sensationalist, result-massaging "scientist" there is. what kind of bullshit "evidence" comes from an opinion piece on cultural marxism? jesus christ

I took freshman comp recently. At the beginning, everyone introduced their name and major, which I took mental note of.

We had about 7 papers to write and most of them we had to present to the class.

While most of the stem majors stumbled a bit over their words or were clearly shy, their arguments were a lot more sound and logical, compared to the humanities majors bullshit

Holy shit you're a stupid faggot who can't even attempt to defend the bullshit you just spouted. Look at >>7779073, fucking look at what you said and get red from shame you fucking mongoloid

no, but I got a free piece of paper that says master's degree on it so far

> unironically, repeatedly using the term "cultural marxism"

So much cringe ITT.

Back on topic though. I know the OP is b8, but it is true that if you struggle in your English classes then you are definitely an idiot. But sometimes idiots can succeed in certain STEM fields just by being autistic robots.

You need a minimum level of writing skill to be a good scientist. With that, your findings should be enough to get you recognised in your field.

Stop being an autistic samefag.

Everyone knows what the term means.

What is termed "English" now is really "English Literature". I really enjoyed English classes when they were concerned with teaching correct grammar, or when they were focused on writing skills that helped marshal your thoughts. Apart from that, I also enjoyed when we studied poetry - which was extremely seldom - because it was often about dissecting rhythmical patterns, stress, alliteration and so on. You can see how ordered linguistic rules and mental exercises that help you think logically would appeal to most scientists.

Those classes were seldom though. Most of my English classes were concerned with "critically reading" texts, which actually meant stuffing political opinions into the mouths of dead writers. The last year of mandatory English was almost entirely devoted to reading only two texts (in addition to one text that you would personally choice over the summer break, but which you were never allowed to write of in mock exams, likely because the teacher had little control over what you chose). The two texts I had were Othello and The Great Gatsby. Our entire discussion of Othello was focused on race and gender politics, while The Great Gatsby (in the mind of our 28 year old hippie female teacher) became a treatise on class war and a scathing rebuke of capitalism.

I absolutely hated the experience, but because I was a perfectionist, I did what was required to get the A in my exams and coursework. This basically involved vomiting up the "arguments" given by my English teacher on to the exam script, but ordering them in a coherent structure. I got an A, but I felt dirty afterwards. It still makes me bitter that I was forced to write nonsense, such as how Iago represents racism and misogyny and played upon Othello's insecurities to cause him to commit murder. Since them I've been quite convinced that English, as it's currently taught, is little more than a horrible amalgamation of media studies and social studies.

You must be friends of Anders Breivik. Cultural marxism is a reactionary scare tactic. Nobody knows what the term means because it can be applied to anything which furthers the reactionary, conspiracy-nut propaganda machine.

Sounds like you went to a meme school bro

Are you one of those people who are hired to unironically post garbage teenage quality political ideas on the internet?

You're not important and you're not making the world a better place by pissing in a sea of piss. Get a real job.

Why so dogmatic? Be more open-minded.

I think you need an intervention from all that red-pill you're consuming.

Shh it's ok Anon. You can be happy too one day. Just find a qt. to marry and get a satisfying job that contributes meaningfully to the economy and thus society as a whole.

You forgot the part about the "qt" cucking him.
