One of the things that I have noticed in this forum is that there are a significant number of posters, mostly female, who are precious snowflakes who feel a need to retreat to their imaginary safe spaces whenever they encounter a point of view that differs from theirs, or when someone calls them out on their bullshit.
I would invite such precious snowflakes to look into a figurative mirror and think about their reaction to counter arguments.
By blocking someone, rather than engaging them in debate, it is a de facto admission that your position cannot be supported by facts. This is why it is those on the left who, in my experience, account for 100 per cent of the blockers and reporters.
The facts, such as published science and history, will destroy their position, so they (figuratively) put their fingers in their ears and chant la la la rather than confront the possibility that they may be wrong.
This, I believe, is the result of leftist psychological conditioning that has permeated the education systems of the Western world in the manner of the intellectual cancer that it is.
Such people also flag as offensive posts that present published science and history as counter arguments to their positions. This is a sign of intellectual bankruptcy, as well as stupidity.
The moderators of this forum appear to share this form of intellectual bankruptcy and stupidity, because more often than not they remove such posts and send a message to the poster who dared to disagree with the special snowflake.
I have also observed that the special snowflakes are usually of an age that would put them in either secondary school, or university.
Here is a warning to such people.
One day you are going to finish what is called (laughably) your education. When that happens, you will discover that the real world is different to the leftist fantasy into which you were indoctrinated at school and/or university. You will discover that your degree in liberal arts, or gender studies, is worthless.

I see where you're coming from, and I agree with some of your points.
However, you are making a 100% incorrect ASSumption that people that block and/or report others are somehow automatically leftist millinneals. I'm a quote unquote "millinneal" that is not leftist, socialist, easily hurt, or is looking for a "safe space". Real life is hard, put a helmet on.
I don't block people for cicil disagreement, and I will even acknowledge a counter viewpoint if I can relate to where the other person is coming from.
However, I DO block and/or report antagonistic, trolls, fucktards, people that just want to argue for the fun of it, or are intentionally obtuse. For some reason, there are quite a few dimwits here that think they've somehow "Won" and internet debate, simply because they were blocked. They never consider the fact that they may just be annoying to the other person, who is tired of wasting time beating a dead horse.
I've never seen you before, so I have no idea if this applies to you. But you may want to consider it.
I'm a fiscally conservative, socially moderate, anti-entitlements, and most importantly, a Constitutionalist. Your generalization is just that.
