What’s up? Just got back from the hospital. Boy who would have thonk helping people would be so tiring I’m dead on my feat someone carry me to my grave and dump dirt on my corpse.
Alright, back to answering you:
Most important of all: I’m sorry if I gave off the impression I was trying to dictate your speech. It was in no way my intention to do that as I strongly believe that giving off that censoring vibe is not the correct way to approach a healthy discussion. With that said, my sincerest apologies.
I disagree. Dealing with Psychological patients, most of them are victims of verbal assault – often paired with other problems. The damage is real, and just today a woman was breaking down because she had had two abortions a while ago and one of our most experienced doctors told her to literally: “forget about it and get a cat.” Yikes, Dr. Woman, use your empathy, you know?
I’m genuinely happy to hear – no sarcasm, I don’t know how to phrase this any other way, honest – you don’t have first-hand accounts of verbal violence towards you or those around you to change your view. I think that witnessing that is the saddest possible way to come to the conclusion that words hold power, and oftentimes in a very dangerous and damaging way.
I will reiterate that was not my intention, I’m truly sorry that out of all the valuable linguistic explanation I gave you, this was the lasting impression. I was hoping we – as in we, Chronies – could analyze the deeper meaning behind words and discuss that in a healthy way, not to make myself sound like I was directly attacking you.
My post was not about you or directed at you. It was meant for the community as a whole and to enrich the ongoing discussion. The only portion directed at you specifically starts with “PS:”, and it seems like you have nothing to say about that bit that took me so long to write.
I hope this clears any confusion.
Nothing! I went in there blind, thinking it would be interesting to share and encouraging other to use that tool. It always helps me when I’m into linguistic discussions and talking about word appropriation with colleagues.
There are two word fields. You can insert both there and see the output! Why don’t give it a shot yourself?
Fam, I think this is uncalled for. We know Fraggles has strong opinions – as far as what we can tell in this humble forum, of course, I don’t know him in person. That isn’t a bad or a good thing, it’s just a personality trait.
I think we all went too far into having a nice little talk, and in my experience that oftentimes derails it into a big nasty discussion instead. So let’s stay cool at avoid talking about >each other< when the topic has, frankly, nothing to do with us personally.
We’re all sitting here talking about an anime/manga genre some of us – but not all, and I can speak only for myself here of course, no judgment on my end – watch/read and discussing the sentiments of people who are not here to give their opinion – if any of you are transsexual and I’m assuming, I deeply apologize – whatever our thoughts may be about them and their opinion/feelings.
That ain’t very cool, overall. That’s why I kinda tried to shift things to linguistics a bit but failed.
I give up trying to have this circular talk lmao and I hope we can all hang the towel on this little argument of ours. It can lead nowhere good without information we can’t possibly attain live – + it be derailing this fine thread good, fellas.
For clarity, this means I won’t be posting any more on this thread after this post.
As I suggested before, I think a good, healthy, alternative to the genre is “Mistaken Identity”. I read someone provide this suggestion online and thought it was pretty cool. Use it to you heart’s content if you wanna!
