It does not really matter if it 'data proven' or not, it is an easy target for stereotyping as an insult and just the thing to get a stream of 'that's personal' or genderist or several other accusations which can take on a life of its own with no relation to the original post is what I mean.AeroDynamic wrote: ↑Wed Nov 17, 2021 11:47 amThe grow up and feminine thing is directed at people taking time to find post of someone they have a personal problem with, and neg them childishly. Over using emojis? It wasn’t directed at people in here addressing the issues you’re talking about.SiLo wrote: ↑Wed Nov 17, 2021 11:38 amI think it's more calling it feminine that's the issue here. And saying "grow up" really doesn't help things either. That's just an excuse to ignore derogatory or attacking comments that can turn people away from civil discussion and critical thinking. Both of which really help the forum be a great place to enjoy commentary and conversation about F1.
Are there some that get offended a bit too easily? Maybe, but being offended is subjective and entirely personal.
I see a lot of posts where people are just effectively insulting each other, and just ignore what the other person is trying to say. It's very easy to get sucked into these arguments when you believe something different and what they are saying contradicts your beliefs. Changing someone's beliefs are very difficult, as beliefs generally are grounded in experiences. At the moment my only play for a lot of it is to not get involved. But I can't help responding to certain people...
And it is feminine to go after another’s reputation. Its not what I’m calling it, It’s been studied by the psychologists-about the traits and manifestations of aggression-it’s what the data says. And I love data.
I, as you probably, would not take it as an insult, but some posters seem to be looking for any excuse to cause an argument and this could become polarising (in a PC way) .
