Yes, I think it could be because yelling and berating, even to the point of verbal abuse, is more socially acceptable than physical abuse. You're really onto something! :rolleyes:

(That's without even getting into whatever idiocy he defines as "verbal emasculation".)
I've yet to see any human physically emasculate another human in public. Has that even happened on Game of Thrones?

That has got to be one of the most idiotic things in the history of everything.

I've seen plenty of people being yelled at but i've never seen anyone torturing and murdering another person in public! So one must be more socially acceptable than the other! FFS

I don't get why people are upset. I just want to have a calm and rational discussion.

Obviously*. So I'm going to disagree (calmly and rationally) with this article: Thank God (and Richard Dawkins) I'm no longer an 'angry atheist' | Alom Shaha | Science | The Guardian.

Dawkins may be an older white European male (solidarity!), but atheism isn't exactly a privileged position in most parts of the world.

:hmmm:

By dubbing it "policing", one could make any request for self-restraint sound unjust. For example, privilege policing is just another way of protecting a victim status.
