It is curious to me that I make comments about a group of people
someone finds that offensive and personalizes it then takes me to task for having said it
because when I post a general observation about a group, it’s about a group that is not going to see the comment or even care or be bothered by it.
so how is that bullying? – especially since the comments are from a position of lower power, influence and authority – so there’s literally no impact
but telling a person they may not expresses their views because of perceived offense or rudeness?
FUCK THAT – fuck that fuck whoever thinks that and fuck anyone who agrees with that
If you disagree with what I said – then disagree with what I said.
not me. not my right to express or hold said opinion.
that is not a counter to what was said, that is a personal attack – and that is bullying behavior.
with WHAT WAS SAID
and merely disagreeing or labelling it thus and so – IS NOT A COUNTER ARGUMENT
I do not post from emotion – and most people do. This is why communication on line is fraught with so much more conflict than in person interactions.
People act like there’s not a thinking feeling person on the other side, because most people are too silenced over their lives that their sole concern is to get their points out there
without ever considering how best to get their points across.
So shouting into the void and hearing only echos is not surprising
when people do not bother to take the time or put in the effort to actually connect to the conversation if not the person…
