Viewers arent the biggest fans of Kinsey
One fan user Review lolarivers took to Reddit to discuss their unfavorable feelings toward Kinsey writing I really really dislike kinsey. This girl is just determined to get in trouble. I mean she so freaking annoying I had to make this account just to say that. Speaking for many of the fans on the subreddit imnotcreativeokay simply replied Welcome to the club. Another fan user 9021Ohsnap expressed their confusion writing I just dont understand her. Havent watched the show since last year but shes not even the fun kind of bad just annoying.
In response another fan CamSHenderson makes the argument that her characters lack of likability is due to the writing and specifically the fact that most of the female characters arent as fleshed out as the male characters. They wrote I created my Reddit account yesterday to complain about Kinsey and just the horrible writing for all female characters besides Jackie … Its a shame because the show has great bones but was thrown together with awful writing where many decisions were illogical even for kids unnecessarily rushed and just came in sub par for me.Meanwhile Painted Swindle gives an explanation based on the events of the series writing Well she removed her fear so thats why she acts like a jacka.
