    No, It’s Not Your Opinion. You’re Just Wrong

    Screencap from Kathryn Schulz's TED Talk on being wrong
    I have had so many conversations or email exchanges with students in the last few years wherein I anger them by indicating that simply saying, "This is my opinion" does not preclude a connected statement from being dead wrong. It still baffles me that some feel those four words somehow give them carte blanche to spout batshit oratory or prose. And it really scares me that some of those students think education that challenges their ideas is equivalent to an attack on their beliefs.

    IMO, her opinions are her opinion and doesn't make her right. She's just wrong or right, IMO.
