[...] Telling people to STFU and fall in [line] isn't being dominant so much as being a domineering asshole.
... You know, you werent't wrong the first time; just a little over-specific.
@NamerOfStars I have that tendency to be a bit detail-obsessed. I tend to blame it on English being a second language and lots of English speakers misconstruing my intentions (which is probably my own fault) but it might be a personality trait overall. I tend to be less so though when I speak or write Japanese. I really think there is a nobility to dominance in protecting people. It seems to be conflated with abusing and exploiting people and more so among women, but I think they are failing to understand the trait... understandably when saturated with bad leaders, and cultural demonizations of them in general whether or not they're bad.
I see it similarly to a parent being dominant over their children. They discipline them, make them trust them. Hopefully not too many people think that a parent being submissive to their children to the point where the children are trampling over their parents and doing whatever they want is a good thing. But maybe some rebellious children just see the bossiness of their parents and not how their parents are trying to protect them.
Oh, sure. My comment was meant as a light-hearted "you know, that could technically be an example!". Just being silly.
@NamerOfStars Cheers! My bad. That is something else I need to work on is discerning intent.
