queue scribble 😄 who is just here to be angry
Ah, then you might as well ask why people get upset over words.
Emotions make up everything people do though. Very few people can remove emotion from everything they encounter. I think people just need to do a better job being aware of when they're having an emotional bias
Why is winning an argument satisfying and losing one feels bad?
Much of our nervous system reacts to a verbal altercation in ways similar to physical ones.
I just don't think that's it. It might be some factor for each issue, but I don't think it's a commanlity or the primary factor.
Our nervous system can only project onto the situation.
well its just an infinite cycle
"Oh theres predatory males about"
"This man opens the door for me? What could he want with that! he must be a predatory male!"
"Oh why can't men be nice to me instead?"
And men are told its nice to be friendly and hold open a door etc
It doesn't really comprehend what is going on on a very rational level.
@Paradox Well you seem to not have the issue so maybe you just can't sympathize with it as a concept?
When we have an angry Internet debate, our blood pressure rises and many of the same fight responses kick into action as if we were confronted on the street. Does that make sense? Yes and no.
Also, many "leftists" are on anti-anxiety meds etc
From a rational point of view it makes no sense. From an evolutionary point of view it makes perfect sense.
which reks their brain
Oh, I believe I have agreed it's a thing. What that thing is is what I am thinking about.
The thing it is about is often a threat narrative.
For women, who tend to be more anxious, it is often a threat to safety.
That is why a lot of rhetoric that is anti-male is centered around predation.
If you think that is very hypothetical and indirect - yes, because it is.
But most of our emotions are. When you cry during a movie, you are crying at a set of pixels. Does that make sense?
So how long has this server been in existence
i'll check back later.
A person is rational to the degree that they recognize their own irrationality.
Dude wtf lmao
I get what you are saying, I just don't think it's topic specific. Instead it's something, that seems to span multiple topics.
Yeah I think we all agreed on that
oh did we?
Yeah i know right
The only possible grounds I can think of is the right not to associate by means of not being able to block the messages
Is it something you have to opt into?
No. It's like Amber Alerts but nationwide
I don't know what the content of the presidential alerts are going to be
It's the Cheeto Alerts.
Apparently being sent an emergency text message is an illegal search or seizure
Well I don't get amber alert text messages. .
So, if it's like that then i don't see the problem.
