Is it something in the water? Why is it nearly impossible to have any sort of impassioned discussion with people now, without it devolving into some sort of societal culture war? What happened to heated debates? It's like all arguments are essentially:
A has an opinion.
B thinks A's opinion is wrong.
A explains their reasoning.
B assumes A is triggered/mad/jealous/sad/salty/whatever and that's apparently the end of that.
Or, A has an opinion. B thinks A's opinion is wrong and tried to provide reasoning why. A assumes B is triggered/mad/jealous/sad/salty/whatever and apparently, that's the end of that as well.
PSA: It is possible to type a lot of things, over the internet, and not be mad or triggered or jealous or whatever. Just saying.

Because our society has embraced, all or nothing "My way or the highway" thinking. Blind loyalty to dogma is rewarded in private and public institutions over ability and dedication. Also the idea of the "safe space" where no matter what you say you are right, has led many people to confuse opinions with facts. Let me just add this an invention of Baby Boomer educators, not Millenials, we just have to suffer with it.
I was on another question, someone said something factually incorrect, so I said that is not true at all. Someone asked to explain, so I did, the OP with the factually incorrect statement went off on me then blocked me. Its like one thing if I insulted her, which I didn't, but I mean wtf? You are entitled to your own opinions not your own facts!
If someone keeps calling you salty, triggered etc., just say"call me salty all you want it won't change the fact that..."0

its never about the generation, its always been like that, it just seems that way because we have the ability to go on the internet and express our feelings to people we can't even see. plus, word gets around quicker.0
