How much do you have to be versed in something to have an opinion about it?

It’s important to research out critical issues (duh). But I don’t believe you have to be an expert at something to have an opinion about it. Some may accuse you of being unqualified to make a commentary about something unless you’ve completely immersed yourself in the details, but I don’t think that is always true. 

For example, I HATE “50 Shades of Gray.” I’ve never read it, nor will I ever read it. But I say that with no hesitation (read my post if you’re interested in why). 

What do ya’ll think?  How much do you have to be versed in something to have an opinion about it?


“Avoid the appearance of evil” (Thessalonians 5:22)

 

PS.  By the way, I do think that MOST of the time, you gotta know your stuff really well to establish your credibility and lend validity to your argument. Don’t accuse me of not being into that. I’ve written enough college essays to know you gotta back up your stuff with evidence. 

BUUUUT sometimes something is so awful and such a turn-off that you don’t have to be incredibly familiar with it to know its trash.
