#2 pencils have more privileges than other types of pencils! They are sold around more often then others, and are used in schools much more. The odds of a person buy a pack of #2 pencils verses a simple 8B pencil are 200 to 1! Heck, exam/test cover sheets require a #2 pencil, or #2 led, forcing the other pencils to step aside.

There is an obvious privilege problem here!

I had originally titled it "Privilege Thread to piss off Endark", but after coming up with the idea, I just deleted everything before Privilege and put "of pencils" and left it because I was too lazy to fix it afterwards.

Exactly. And you know what? I think that those people who put stereotypical labels on pencils based only the darkness of its lead is frankly discrimination, bigotry.

4B is objectively better. Now, be PC about pencils all you like, but we know better.

XD I've used 4B in art app. I'm not the best drawer, but I wouldn't mind getting better at it.

I was ready to disagree with you but had to look up what a #2 pencil refers to. Not living in the US and doing some drafting in the past, I was familiar with the the scale that includes 2H or a2B, but not just a #2. Apparently it's about the same as HB that I am familiar with in Canada. And I agree completely that the HB (or #2) gets most of the attention and privilege. I was always a bit more partial to the F pencil, but now just use whatever pens or pencils I can grab from the storage closet at work.
