Disclaimer: The opinions mentioned below are extremely shallow, arrogant and MINE ALONE. They do not reflect the opinion of any moderator or author (except me). The following is strictly a coarse rant and not for the faint hearted or egoists (or arts students - who usually have both traits).
Arts students are insightful revolutionaries, with delightfully radical ideas that will change the world.
Such is their delusion.
You know who piss me off (besides everybody)? Arts students. Especially, the literature pursuing types.
I hate arts. Not the typical arts-is-for-inferior-minds hate. I hate arts because of the new breed of smug-bastards that infest it. Especially, those literature pursuing types. Priorly, arts students were looked down upon, because it required low grades and even lower intellect (which is completely true) which is completely wrong on humanitarian grounds. But now they deserve it. Every bit of it. Especially, the literature pursuing types.
(For the sake of this article ‘arts students’ means literature pursuing types)
All college freshmen are annoying, by default. It’s the dangerous blend of school-graduating conceit and pride of admission in college that makes them feel supreme. Their utter ignorance of reality and heart full of unrealistic dreams makes them act like pompous primates. That’s just the regular variety.
Arts student are of an extraordinary variety of imbeciles who suffer from acute narcissism while their souls starves for respect and acknowledgement - which no one gives them. They adopt a radically hilarious personality to look sophisticated and speak excessively proper English with irksome eloquence - as if they were the love child of Shakespeare and Jane Austen, conceived with poor judgment on prom night.
These aspiring laureates, in college, delve into their curriculum with animated gusto and pretentiously indulge in all things artsy. Their journey of lifelong snobbery begins with hating contemporary writers while secretly enjoying chick lit (literature for dimwits). Then, they suddenly start reading books of foreign writers who aren’t even famous in their own country and write verbose garbage; later quote their ambiguous lines on Facebook to seem well read. This self-glorification continues with listening to needlessly sad English songs and non-conformance to mainstream music, which also extends to movies. Their movie preference changes with shunning all mainstream cinema due to their sudden fondness for foreign movies which aren’t in English. By then, some foreign language has tickled their fancy, like French or German which becomes their new passion and only words expressed in that language truly touches their heart. “Bonjour!” F**k off.
It’s all about overwhelming feelings and profound words with these severe type of know-it-all’s. That’s why men who pursue arts are tagged massive pussies. These ‘artsholes’ pretend to have elusive knowledge about EVERYTHING, while practically knowing nothing. With their constant practice of dissecting perfectly intelligible literature into vague spiels, they are trained to create flowery theories which can never be practically applied. They are masters of inconclusive bullshit. Five minutes in their company and you will face a life altering question: murder or suicide?
Want proof? Try this test.
I cleverly call it the ‘Lit Must Test’! LOL! Get it? Literature Mus… yeah, so, go to Facebook. Seek out and add a literature student. Regardless of gender, you will find them all cocky. Upon addition to their virtual life, jump to an evaluation process commonly called Facebook stalking. Go through their wall. I assure you, you will find something like this:
“Whatever we may do or attempt, despite the embrace and transports of love, the hunger of the lips, we are always alone. I have dragged you out into the night in the vain hope of a moment's escape from the horrible solitude which overpowers me. But what is the use! I speak and you answer me, and still each of us is alone; side by side but alone.” - Guy de Maupassant
What just raped your brain is an actual post by an actual literature student being actually annoying on my profile. I’m actually pissed off and need some meditation.

You will never find ONE arts student who doesn’t wish to write a book or doesn’t claim to hold an opinion directly opposite to popular belief on ANY topic. Their unanimously clichéd dreams and long-winded whining about arbitrary thoughts has always irated my inner Hulk and I wish Hitler was still alive and we were friends.
Arts students are so self-important they can’t even stand each other. That’s why pages like ‘Literature Students Who Hate Literature Students’ exist on Facebook with no Science or Commerce variation of the same. Why do arts students need to rub their academic pursuits in the face of EVERYBODY to such wannabe extents where they say “excuse me” to auto drivers and “thank you” to street vendors, which is nowhere close to polite and looks plain weird. I don’t think engineering students ever sit in autos and start explaining the motor mechanism to the driver. Being a commerce student, I never went to a street vendor and asked him if he maintains proper books of accounts. Then, WHY, WHY MUST ARTS STUDENTS BE SUCH PROUD NINCOMPOOPS!?
This elite group of idiots who demand your respect for making negligible contributions to society, and wish to cover up their real-world ineptitude with grandiloquence should be treated with the contempt they deserve. If your child is headed towards arts, you are failing as a parent. Like this girls parents (must watch).
