Another thought on "Inspiration Porn" ...

99% of the time, I don't like sentimentality.* "Inspiration Porn" relies on sentimentality, so I guess predisposed to hate it. Which is not the same thing as objecting to it or arguing that it is harmful. I think it is, but mainly I just don't like it. It's yuck.

* The 1% represents the love scene from "Say Anything", the La Marseillaise scene from "Casablanca", and all of "Before Sunrise".
