I get naked and sit down near a vase, waiting to be smashed by the hammer of another guy half naked.

Who cares of hypertrophic weapons when the player on the court moves like music?

Re: When aggressively faced with facts that contradict your perspective...

I am very open-minded and willing to listen to other people's opinions, but when it is facts represented aggressively, I will aggressively debunk them with pseudofacts until the person thinks that they are also wrong. Present your facts, but don't be aggressive for me to accept them.

Agree but I can't remember the situation when somebody would present me real facts in an aggressive manner. People who are educated and know the facts also tend to debate in a civil manner. People who present nonsense can tend to be aggressive to give their opinions a higher platform. Aggressiveness in debates is a signal for lack of arguments ...

Re: When aggressively faced with facts that contradict your perspective...

I am never "aggressively faced with facts"

Usually I am faced with aggressive emotional "arguments". These are more or less annoying, depending on the fucked-upness of the person making them.

People who constantly loudly proclaim they are dealing with FACTs are insecure. They mistakenly think that screaming about it makes it factual.

On Tennis Forum it gets ignored.

After there were 5 pages of push back against a woman's unproven homophobia, I posted and stated that sexism does not get 5 pages of push back on a Women's Tennis Forum.

Sexism is bigger problem then Homophobia, homosexuals can be safe in the closet and still carry on their life without danger, there is no such closet for Women.

About every 16 hours, a woman is shot and killed by a former or current partner in the USA.

In the United States, more than one in three women report experiencing abuse from a partner in their lifetime.1 The effects of this abuse are far-reaching, impacting not only individual victims, but also their families, their communities, and our economy. When domestic abusers have access to guns, the effects can be deadly. This nexus between guns and domestic violence makes the US the most dangerous country for women compared to other high-income countries.

USA is no worse then rest of the World.

Shame on all men but particularly on all those men who give more push back against homophobia then they do on Sexism. Including those like George Clooney.
This was followed by 5 more pages of push back against homophobia - I have not yet come across a 11 page thread against sexism on Tennis Forum recently.

Re: When aggressively faced with facts that contradict your perspective...

Bet you've seen frauds seemingly suave and persuasive with their nonsense and they are the best (or the worst) kind so the tone doesn't matter.
Communication is so overrated and I truly think it's best focusing on building one's own kingdom of ideas as barely anyone would clearly discern and define right or wrong.

Re: When aggressively faced with facts that contradict your perspective...

You mean in a situation where your perspective is clearly wrong and someone aggressively shows you that? Or in a situation where the other person just has a different perspective which might not be correct and tries to force it on you?
First case, I ignore them.
Second case, I also ignore them.

I don't deal with aggressive people.

Re: When aggressively faced with facts that contradict your perspective...

I hate aggressive people so at first I'll probably just disagree for the sake of disagreeing. But if what the person says really has a point I'll probably end up searching about and maybe changing my mind.
