BrokenIndigoCrayons recently made a thread entitled "95% of female newborns should be blinded by doctors" and I have to confess that I agree with him.

Usually that's the point where normies show up to "debate" us. They want to refute our "arguments" and react surprised when we accuse them of attacking us, "I'm not attacking or belittling you, we're just having a discussion".

But there is no debate to be had:

* I don't want to be laughed at.
* I don't want to be looked at with disgust.
* I don't want to be compared to Chad.
* I don't want to be afraid to go out in public.
* I don't want women to see me.

All of that (and some more) can be summed up in the sentence "Women should be blinded at birth".

These feelings are real. They are not up for discussion. You don't get to tell me what my lived experience is. You don't get to tell me how I am allowed to feel.

Arguing that me not wanting women to see me is not real, that me not wanting women to see me is not true, that me not wanting women to see me makes me a horrible person is not ok. There is no "just having a discussion", you are attacking and belittling me at every step of your stupid "arguments".

Are normies really so delusional that they cannot see how they are reinterpreting an expression of vulnerability and emotion as some kind of proposal for political action that must be debated and stopped? Don't they recognize that every step of these strawman discussions is about denying our incel experience?

Most of the "discussion" on this subreddit involves one person laying out their hurt and feelings while another person does his or her best to invalidate them one by one in the spirit of what he or she either believes or at least pretends to be believe to be a reasoned discussion. That's not how successful communication works.

Confused?
