Think we should declare a moratorium on calling people a Tory

Quite enjoying this developing little side joust.


#162

She should be addressed as Ms Amos at all times.


#163

It’s literally the paradox of tolerance, isn’t it.


#164

I mean if I believe that right wing views are harmful to people and cruel, I don’t want to condone having those views. I honestly don’t feel like it’s a right worth protecting


#165

Yes please. Do you have lemon?


#166

cool. so when we talk about people who say things with the word ‘left’ substituted for ‘right’ being abominable…


#167

Do you not think pejorative language can be harmful to people and cruel?


#168

lemon cake is probably the best cake all round isn’t it?

Can’t really have a shit lemony cake


#169

that’s because the left and right aren’t the same thing. One is objectively bad to me the other isn’t


#170

I dunno what I can say about that whilst being honest to what I feel really


#171

that’s fine. you’re highlighting why it is hypocrisy. i don’t mind you acknowledging that but then saying ‘what are you gonna do though eh?’. that’s also fine.


#172

yes I do. that’s why it’s important to try and bring people along and make them understand where they are going wrong in a way that’s not personally abusive


#173

pcbe


#174

that’s just not hypocrisy though


#175

then you need to read more of those books you hate


#176

isn’t the term false equivalence or something?


#177

it’s certainly a term


#178

oppression of tories isn’t a great concern to me, no.

not interested at all in that prescriptive reasoning where you go ‘if you think x group should be protected you should also think right wing people should be protected’. i dont, i dont care about the logical reasoning behind it.


#179

you’re making out like it’s some Lilliputian thing


#180

Tell you what is objectively funny and that’s when gammons complain they’re being racially abused based on the colour of their skin
