Realization of the day

I underestimated the traumatizing potential of arguments, in general, not just ones about topics that clearly relate to your real life.

Someone I follow on Tumblr was talking about a really horrible-sounding experience they had, where someone argue-harrassed them about evolution/creationism. Which is a fairly abstract and impersonal issue, but when someone pushes you into discussing it and then does everything they can to avoid having an actual honest discussion with you… I have felt that way a lot, I realize, and it can be pretty awful.

I’ve felt like that a lot in classroom discussions, mostly, which is kind of weird to think about but there it is.
