Day 513

A response to Dutton's article on Judith Butler ---

A good piece of writing doesn’t necessarily have to be meant for everybody. Besides, if writing were catered towards everyone in the entire world, it would likely be extremely vague and impersonal, never making any sort of mark on the reader. Can Judith Butler's work be convoluted and frankly impossible for the average reader to understand? Definitely. Even though Butler’s work is not an easy read, it serves a distinct purpose. For linguists and English professors, Butler’s work is comprehensible, so I disagree with Dutton’s notion that just because she uses language to appeal to a certain group of people, it is wrong.
