I don't like them because

1) I feel like I'm being given a front-row seat in someone else's fantasy, which is true of most fic, of course, but reader-insert just takes away all pretence, and that just makes me feel uncomfortable, and

2) I can't get past the fact that the "reader character" just isn't thinking and acting the way I would - which also makes me uncomfortable because I'm being asked to project myself into a character beyond what one normally experiences identifying with characters whike reading, and it's weird trying to inhabit someone who feels so wrong.
