I had to kayak from South Africa to some place in Europe for a debating competition.
I don’t even do debating.

oh, to be an argument with my academic rival, on opposing sides to a topic we’re both passionate about, subtly starting to notice the way their shoulders move up and down, heaving breaths after the argument, the slight tips of their cheekbones red, noticing their eyes subtly moving up and down your body, doing the exact same thing you are doing to them. you catch each other’s eyes, then blush and look away simultaneously as your teacher calls for a return to order  . . .

The Concept of Debates
al-Awzāʿī said: ‎“Whenever Allah wishes evil upon a group of people, He causes them to persist in debating and arguing, and prevents them from (righteous) actions.” حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ إِمْلَاءً أَخْبَرَنَا دَعْلَجُ بْنُ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ دَعْلَجٍ حَدَّثَنَا أَبُو شُعَيْبٍ الْحَرَّانِيُّ حَدَّثَنَا الْبَابَلْتِيُّ حَدَّثَنَا الْأَوْزَاعِيُّ قَالَ (إِذَا أَرَادَ اللَّهُ بِقَوْمٍ شَرًّا فَتَحَ عَلَيْهِمُ الْجَدَلَ وَمَنَعَهُمُ الْعَمَلَ) Abū Ismāʿīl al-Harawī, Ḏam al-Kalām wa Ahlihi 5/123 #916 أبو إسماعيل الهروي، ذم الكلام وأهله ٥/١٢٣ #٩١٦ @ilmtest []

I just want to say, that there is a big difference between being blunt and being mean, that I wish everyone would remember, especially when talking to autistic people.
And I’m not just saying “trying to be blunt isn’t an excuse to be mean” or “being mean is bad, while being blunt isn’t” though that’s obviously also true.
What I am saying is that being blunt or direct shouldn’t be perceived as being mean, and that applies to both ways in communicating. An autistic person might be very direct, but unless they explicitly tell you so, you shouldn’t assume that they are implying something negative or are trying to be mean, arrogant or disrespectful. In fact, some autistics tend to be open-minded, matter-of-fact and forgiving, so the chances are that they are literally just stating something, and will be sad and/or confused that you thought they were being negative or mean.
When speaking to someone who might be autistic, be blunt without being being mean about it. If you need them to do something, if something they are doing is annoying you, is breaking some unwritten rule or is making someone sad, assume that that wasn’t the intention (I think this goes for neurotypicals as well btw), and let them know in a direct, but nice way.
Here are some examples:
“I would be more comfortable if you did/didn’t do/say ‘...’ as it is making me feel ‘...’”
“You might not know this, but according to this unwritten rule, you should/shouldn’t ‘..’:)”
“I know you may not have noticed, or didn’t do it on purpose, but you doing/saying ‘...’ made me uncomfortable because of ‘...’”
“I love that you are so interested in this subject/I get that this worries you a lot and can be hard to not think/talk about, and I’d like to help you find solutions, but right now I need to talk about something else or just be quiet :)”
“Would it be possible for you to get this specific thing done by this specific time? For ‘....’ reason, it would make me happy if you did that, or for ‘...’ reason, I think you should do that, and I will be annoyed if you don’t do it, without having good reason.”
Say it before you get annoyed. And think about whether your annoyance is justified. If the person wasn’t deliberately going against you explicitly stated wishes, do they deserve being the victim of the fact that you are feeling an impulsive, negative emotion? Some autistics/ADHD people have RSD (rejection sensitivity disorder) or have a kind of intuitive black and white perception of things, and learning that they unintentionally made you annoyed or angry with them, may therefore be very hurtful and difficult for them to get over quickly, as it will lead them to feel that you don’t like them the way they are.
Not saying anything, or only implying and then expecting them to figure it out themselves, can come across as way more mean and disrespectful, as you are not giving them a good chance to choose to apologize or to act in a way that doesn’t make you/others uncomfortable. And it can feel really uncomfortable and confusing. Also, this person might already be obsessing about trying to get things right, so it will be a huge relief for them to be able to rest assured that if they do get it wrong, somebody will make them aware of it.
Important: what I am not saying, is that you should then say everything that is on your mind, and expect people to change everytime they do something that rubs you the wrong way a little bit. If it really makes you uncomfortable, you can let them know that they are making you feel this way, and you can even request that they change it.
However, if they are not being annoying on purpose, or may be expressing something in a way that actually makes you misunderstand their intention, and they know that it will be too harmful or demand too much energy to change, or it makes them feel that they have to be someone else around you and that makes them feel wrong or lonely, they can choose to deny your request, and maybe you’ll have to find another solution or a compromise. The point is that by being direct and explicit about them, you are giving them the choice, the chance to clear up misunderstandings, and making them aware.
Nobody is perfect, and it’s not often that we meet someone where we like everything they do all the time.
If you want to have a relationship with someone, you owe it to them to either try to accept or learn to love the traits that differs from yours and that may not be your favorite flavor.:)
Aand a disclaimer: I mention autism and ADHD, but I can obviously only speak from my own experience. And i mean, the way I see it, this goes for every type of person, but I don’t know, I might just be projecting. (On the other hand, you can never know whether the person you are speaking to, actually isn’t neurotypical).
If I said something that you disagree with, feel very free to let me know, by following the steps mentioned above⬆️ :)

really tired of hearing people clap back at conservatives with the “have some empathy” or “we react like this because we actually have empathy!” thing. I know what you actually mean, I understand what youre meant to be saying by this, but this wording is harmful to people with low empathy. start saying compassion instead please. not everyone has the capacity for empathy, but everyone has the capacity for compassion. not having empathy is not a moral failing, and we should stop treating it like it is.

I love arguing with ENTP about politics. He of course does it with everyone (how vulgar of him), but I'm too shy for that. In a way it almost feels intimate when I get to finally flex my debate skills with him in the bedroom, little tipsy, at about 4am.

Debate guest: Vaush, answer the q-VAUSH
Vaush: I-
Debate guest: Vaush! VAUSH! You're dodging the question
Vaush: Okay, you know what, I'm sorry, I'm sorry
Debate guest: Just answer the question, we can move on to whatever you want afterwards but just answer the question
Vaush: Sorry could you repeat the question for me please?
Debate guest: Sure. Okay, so
Vaush: Mhmm
Debate guest: So, um, lemme think here, you've sorta derailed my train of thought.
Vaush: That's okay, take your time *eats chicken nuggets*
Debate guest: Okay! Okay... Okay, so, just, hypothetically now, okay vaush?
Vaush: Mhmm
Debate guest: So, hypothetically speaking: Who can make the sun rise?
Vaush: Oh for fuck sake
Vaush: Because I know exactly what you're gonna ask
Debate guest: Well let me ask it first, who can make a sunrise, sprinkle it with dew, c-
Vaush: I knew this was going to come up, it's the classic Wonka-pilled, oompa-lompa dogwhistling argume-
Vaush: This... This isn't a gotcha moment, this EXACT argument has been discredited FACTUALLY at every turn
Debate guest: Answer the question Vaush
Vaush: I-
Vaush: I... Would have to say 'the Candy Man'
Debate guest: EXACTLY! EXactLY!

Too much debating belittles status of knowledge.
{Arguing المراء Ignorance الجاهلية Imam al Shafi'i الإمام الشافعي Knowledge العلم Manners الادب}
Ibn ‘Abd al Hakam reported: Al Shafi’i, may Allah have mercy on him, said, “Among the degradation of knowledge is that you debate everyone who debates you, or you argue with everyone who argues with you.”
And he said, “Knowledge is ignorance to the people of ignorance, just as ignorance is ignorance to the people of knowledge.”
Source: Manāqib al Shāfi’ī lil Bayhaqī 2/151
عَنْ ابن عبد الحكم قال قال الشافعي رحمه الله من إِذَالَةِ العلم أن تناظر كلَّ من ناظرك وتُقاوِلَ كلَّ من قَاوَلَك
وقال العلم جهل عند أهل الجهل كما أن الجهل جهل عند أهل العلم
2/151 مناقب الشافعي للبيهقي

Hello everybody! To be clear, I have left Tumblr, but I don’t know how else I’m going to advertise this without being pushy or disrespectful of other peoples’ personal space. 
This post involves Christianity. If this will make you uncomfortable, please do not read this. Hurting someone is the last thing I want to do.
Welcome to Light in the Darkness, a Christian discord server made to teach people about a non LGBTQ+ phobic, non trump-ism side of Christianity! All people are welcome, including non Christians seeking a positive space/place to learn about a kinder side of our religion! If you are a non Christian seeking to debate with someone about philosophy, you can join, too (I personally adore debates!), but please do not join simply to harass members. You will be kicked.
Whether you want to join or not, I hope you have a wonderful day!

Agreeing to Disagree
Yūnus said: I debated Shāfīʿī on an occasion on an issue and I left him (ie: after the argument becoming heated). قال وقال لنا يونس ناظرت الشافعي يوما في مسألة ثم افترقنا (One day), he met me, held my hand and said to me: “O Abū Mūsá, cannot we be brothers, even if we disagree about something?” ولقيني فأخذ بيدي ثم قال لي يا أبا موسى لا يستقيم أن نكون إخوانا وإن لم نتفق في مسألة Ibn ʿAsākir, Tārīkh Dimashq 51/302 ابن عساكر، تاريخ دمشق ٥١/٣٠٢ Telegram: Twitter: Instagram: Facebook: Tumblr: YouTube: Website:
