Read Bifo

Commit suicide

Delete your post. Saying stuff like this is extremely problematic.

I agree with the spirit of what you're saying but like... come on. There are better ways to engage people over issues like these. Ordering him to delete the post and calling it "extremely problematic" with no context or explanation isn't gonna help him understand why he shouldn't talk about suicide the way he did. It just comes off as arrogant and it's gonna make people defensive. Plus, for all we know, you could be talking about Bifo.

Context doesn't matter. Especially not the way his post was. Don't come at me with your pseudo-moralist defense of his rhetoric. If you can't see the problem with saying that, then you are the problem.

So you're content to let people say offensive things because the fact that they don't realize that what they're saying is offensive means they're below a simple explanation?

That's sad. And it's symptomatic of the toxic political climate we live in.

You and I are on the same page on this issue. Trivializing suicide is really bad. But it won't stop if we don't actually engage people.

That's literally not what I said. I think it goes without explanation that saying "commit suicide" is pretty messed up. Like I said, if you can't see it, you're the problem.

I'm glad the site has devolved into children who think they're funny despite the way rhetoric can carry severe emotional weight. Especially on this subject. I assumed that debaters, especially debaters who are on this site trying to learn, would be more cognizant of the things they say.

I'm glad you get your upvotes for being "funny" for saying things like the person above, but you're also disgusting.

Look friend, I see that what he said was bad. So stop saying that I'm the problem; that makes no sense. I think you're wrong to assume that it's obvious to everyone why joking about suicide is bad, and in the case where it's not obvious to someone, why wouldn't you just give them a simple explanation so that they can understand it? You're assuming they understand the full weight of what they're saying but they just don't care because they're evil or something. That's not gonna get you anywhere.

Speaking of not getting anywhere, I shouldn't have started this argument. It's not accomplishing anything.

Allow me to decode everything you just said:

Delete your post. Saying stuff like this is extremely problematic. 

"I am the language police. Delete your post now because I say so."

 

Context doesn't matter. Especially not the way his post was. Don't come at me with your pseudo-moralist defense of his rhetoric. If you can't see the problem with saying that, then you are the problem.

"Anyone who disagrees with me in any fashion must be doing it as a veiled defense of suicide jokes. And if it isn't instantly obvious to someone how right I am, then they are ****THE PROBLEM**** (Another term that sounds heavy but doesn't actually mean anything)"

 

That's literally not what I said. I think it goes without explanation that saying "commit suicide" is pretty messed up. Like I said, if you can't see it, you're the problem.

"I don't know how to use the word literally, plus I'm too immature to have an actual disagreement with anyone. If they disagree with me then they're what's wrong with the world. I have a monopoly on understanding 'basic' issues like these"

 

I'm glad the site has devolved into children who think they're funny despite the way rhetoric can carry severe emotional weight. Especially on this subject. I assumed that debaters, especially debaters who are on this site trying to learn, would be more cognizant of the things they say.

I'm glad you get your upvotes for being "funny" for saying things like the person above, but you're also disgusting.

"I'm don't like what EatPrayJordan is saying so I'm gonna call the whole site children and indict their credentials as debaters despite the fact that basically everyone here dislikes EatPrayJordan and downvotes him to hell. I'm also so above everyone that I'm 'glad' they're wallowing in their own idiocy.  Now let me end it with an insult just like my last two posts because I'm the smartest and most ethical person here so I get to hurl insults."

 

 

Seriously, you're acting like a child. As someone who has attempted suicide and has had friends commit suicide, I cringed a bit at what the quack debater said. But you need to realize a couple things:

1) The issue of what is okay and not okay to joke about is not black and white. And even if you choose to see it that way, at least understand that other people don't. This "muh if you don't see why it's bad you're the problem" is complete BS. The world is more complicated than that. 

 

2) Get off your fucking high horse and stop assuming people's motivations. You don't know who you're talking to, especially over the internet. You don't know the experience that people are coming at a given issue with.

 

3) For gods sake, the way you talk to people matters. The type of rhetoric you're using is why we have anti-PC reactionary dumbasses like Manhood Academy running around saying the horrible shit they do. Obviously you're not responsible for the way they act, but you sure do galvanize them. And if your goal is to improve the overall quality of discourse you should care about that. Nonegfiat covered this sorta well, but the goal should always be to change people's minds, not just yell at them for being less "woke" than you.

 

I apologize to everyone on this site that seems to dislike the way I "unload" on people, but I'm gonna speak my mind on this issue. I'm tired of seeing people like jobas running around making a mockery of discourse issues.

Yup, I'm the worst. I have no idea what I'm talking about.

 

I don't get why you're trying to call me out while a person literally said "commit suicide." I just disagree that I should have to enlighten someone on why that's wrong. If it's that big of a deal, I don't get why the people who disagree with the way I went about the situation couldn't just be like, "While I disagree with how this was originally handled, he's right that your rhetoric carries emotional/psychological weight." 

 

You've criticized me for being on a moral high horse while adopting that very same moral high horse to deconstruct what I've said.

Let's see how that worked out.

 

Person who disagrees with the way you went about the situation: 

 

I agree with the spirit of what you're saying but like... come on. There are better ways to engage people over issues like these. 

 

You:

 

Don't come at me with your pseudo-moralist defense of his rhetoric. If you can't see the problem with saying that, then you are the problem.

 

Hence my issue. You called them pseudo-moralist, you accused them of defending the rhetoric, and you topped it all off my saying they're the problem. L.

Calm down already. I was wrong to start this. It's just becoming a cesspool of anger. Let's just all agree it's important not to joke about serious stuff like suicide and leave it at that.

Yeah, this sounds good. If anyone is wondering, suicide is bad because life is good.* That's all.

*except for the 8 minutes in which one may be referring to Baudrillard or Schopenhauer or poorly-understood-Nietzsche or some other weird stuff.

Yeah that was in poor taste of me, I should have explained further, I was making a Bifo joke, he mentioned in a lecture once about how suicide is just an extreme form of escape from cognitive capitalism. Bifo impact turns everything.

 

I wasn't trying to trivialize the matter, I was really tired when I wrote that and didn't realize not everyone has read Bifo, that was my bad. Believe me, as the son of a psychiatrist and as someone who's nearly been institutionalized before, I know how serious the matter is. My apologies to anyone I offended, i meant no harm.

 

Delete your post. Saying stuff like this is extremely problematic. 

Also congrats on second at state Jonas!

 

 

edit - then again discourse doesn't solve so like this whole convo was pointless
