this is a good ur a good i wish i can assert the idea that my inability to… understand is perhaps due to the material being incomprehensible w/o a certain frame of reference instead of immediately jumping to the conclusion that i’m just a big DUMB
<3 i wish so, too. (or, i mean, you could describe it as ‘i’m a big dumb’ but at the same time accept that as a Legit Thing that means you require simpler/other explanations? like. there are a lot of people in the world who have trouble understanding a LOT of things.)
also personally a lot of the things i “don’t understand” actively hurt my brain; i will encounter some words/concepts and experience cognitive pain and a kind of reflexive-turning-away from them. and i struggled with feeling immoral for that before i realized the pain was… a legitimate reason to object.
