She didn’t write anything you’re familiar with. I looked it up.

That has been well established lol. That doesn’t mean Americans/redditors could never possibly hear of her works. No fairy tale is American. Do I need to write a fairy tale about it for you to understand the point? I can put a moral in it.

You’ve made no attempt to understand what others are explaining to you (that French fairy tales aren’t unknown to Americans - but the ones she wrote are), so I’m making fun of you instead of making more futile attempts. Does that clear things up or do you need another fairy tale?

I'm an American who is familiar with her fairy tales. There must have been some misunderstanding if you thought I was the one who said her fairy tales are unknown to Americans. You were the one who said that.

I've been polite to you, listening to what you have to say, and supporting you, but you've been nothing but nasty. Instead of just responding "Uhh yes she did," when you said, "She didn’t write anything you’re familiar with," I made an attempt to agree with you and add on to why perhaps you thought that.

Oh alright - list it, then. List the fairy tales she wrote that everyone is so familiar with.

Or you could accept that your reply to my (upvoted) comment that answered the natural next question about this person was a little self-centered. I wasn’t talking to YOU. I was speaking to the commenters in general.

And the redditor learned a very valuable lesson that day: Not all comments on their post are directed at them.

I didn't say you were talking to me. I already said I understood you meant you in general, which is why I did not respond saying yes I do. Instead I responded about redditors in general. Why on earth are you so hostile? I can't fathom why you are acting like this. Calm down.

I agreed with you that her fairy tales might not be well known to redditors, and I gave a thought as to why.
