Hi, Mr. Hopkins,

I really liked this read, but I’d like to say that my problem with Ross could birth another article. See, my problem with him is that he is an egotistical prick and a sexist asshole. If you re-watch the series paying attention to how Ross carries himself around, specially toward women, you’ll get this. It took me years to realize this, but Ross is a jerk, that’s why people don’t like him. There’s a lot of intolerance, sexism and general prejudice in his dialogs, and I find it problematic when Shopping Rachel can be a more relatable character than him.

Not that he is filled with hate or anything. He’s just a douchebag who thinks can hide behind his doctor degree as if it made him special or better. He’s not. He’s a dick.
