A debate is: "Hey Ro. Why do think pre-colonial West African societies moved away from non-binary identities and eschewing gender roles? Here are my thoughts."
That's a debate.
A debate is not: "OMG RO WHY DO YOU HATE ALL THE WHITEZ!!!11?? REVERSE RACISMZZZZ"
That's just a white guy talking out of his ass because he can't think for himself.
Know the difference, friends.
@Smokinjoe You know, it's funny to me how many people mistake anecdotes for intelligence and a general lack of empathy as objectivity.
There are a lot of awful behaviors on here that are normalized because people refuse to be reasonable.
The reality is I'm not actually that smart. I'm just not a bigot, I have eyes and listen.
People delude themselves a ton in this space.
