Can you agree to disagree?

Or will you be hitting the block button as soon an alternate view is expressed? 🤷‍♀️ Personally, I respect everyone to the best of my ability and don’t get upset by different opinions. But we all take risks when engaging on controversial topics.

To a point. There are a lot of TFGs on this site that I have blocked. Bastards use discourse as a tool in bad faith for sewing hate against outgroups.

@BlueVeins true, I have noticed that too
That’s a tough one. I admit, some topics push my buttons. For example, I recently blocked someone that I actually used to like because they concluded a lengthy conversation by informing me that “black people aren’t treated any differently than anyone else in the U.S.—they just don’t want to obey the law.”

Btw, this person had never lived in the U.S. and perhaps obviously, isn’t black.
I blocked her so I wouldn’t call her a “racist piece of crap”. And I sat, shaken that I could’ve misjudged someone so completely. 😞
@SunKiss3d I’m so sorry you experienced that after trusting and befriending someone. The surreal part is, they’re not trying to be cruel, they honestly [b]believe[/b] these things. 😳

@bijouxbroussard yes exactly that's what shocked me the most her exact words were "you aren't like those other black people because you're mixed with white so your a good person"

How do you even respond to that smh. it just broke my heart no matter how much I tried to talk with her and get her to understand race has nothing to do with someone personality. She just couldn't see it and I couldn't be around her anymore without feeling some type of way and thinking about it every time I looked at her. So I just backed away slowly and never spoke to her again.
@SunKiss3d (((hugs))) 🥺

i can agree to disagree with a reasonable and well argued position.

i will not tolerate an emotional or ignorant (uninformed) circular argument that references itself as evidence of its own correctness eg why is the bible the word of god? because god says so. where does god say this? in the bible.

i set out to respect people not to the best of my ability, but to the best of theirs.

As long as it remains a discussion I like to think so. I admit I’ve blocked one or two on here just because they seem to get some twisted pleasure out of talking down to someone, but for the most part I try to accept everyone might not share my opinions
I can agree to disagree with someone with an actually well thought out argument. The problem is you get blatant misinformation (sometimes dangerously so), insults, and character assassination more often then not.
I try not to but some of the users here are insane. i saw someone call an entire nation “barely humans “. Don’t tell me that’s a healthy mind

@SW-User Jesus Christ. I don’t blame you.

I try to, but sometimes I get suckered by trolls. I can accept different viewpoints but sometimes one of us is right and one is wrong. I may be on any side.

I can, but if someone insists on going full dick mode, I dont feel that I need to subject myself to them anymore.
YoungPoet345 · 26-30, F
@wretch yes, true. Blatant disrespect is not okay

People have lost the skill to be able to disagree with someone and not take it personal or think horrible if the person who disagrees.

I have friends from all religious, political and cultural backgrounds. I may not always agree with them but I love and cherish them nonetheless. ❤
There's a saying in the Talmud, "just as people's noses are different, so are their opinions", and a great rabbi commented, "would you want everyone to have the same nose as you?!"

The block button is there as a means of separation from people who are not good for you..

I never block anyone. I am good at ignoring toxic people though
I like talking with people who disagree with me.

I get blocked quite a bit, but I haven't blocked anyone in years.
