Dear internet, this is how you gently and thoughtfully change people’s minds. No shaming, no yelling, just a nice nudge to, “Aha!”
I will aspire to use classy same tone next time I try to educate someone about something!
i think the other really important thing here is the maturity on both parts. like if you just calmly and informatively explain why it is that something offends you, the other party is far more likely to take it on board and understand than if you just get really aggressive from the off, which is probably just going to make them feel attacked and then act defensive, which won’t help when you’re trying to get them to understand your point.
