Labeling your opponent with something like ‘racist’ or ‘sexist’ or ‘pro-abortion’, you are shutting down any kind of discussion.
Maybe it should shut down conversation because you clearly need time to think about why you support/apologize for racism, sexism or whatever bigoted beliefs to which you have a problem admitting you subscribe. See: sometimes racist, sexist and other bigoted voices need to be shut down, since they’re toxic and all. If someone isn’t giving your backward views a forum, that is a good thing. (W/apologies to the ACLU.)
And also, not all issues warrant discussion. Period. They don’t. Slavery had a lot of discussion. Years and years worth of discussion. Who did that benefit? I’m sure southern white supremacists felt it very unfair when abolitionists called them racist idiots, but…uh…they deserved it.
The belief that all issues are entitled to discussion is not just ignorant but naive and frankly a bit immature.
