Dear internet, this is how you gently and thoughtfully change people’s minds. No shaming, no yelling, just a nice nudge to, “Aha!”
I will aspire to use classy same tone next time I try to educate someone about something!
i think the other really important thing here is the maturity on both parts. like if you just calmly and informatively explain why it is that something offends you, the other party is far more likely to take it on board and understand than if you just get really aggressive from the off, which is probably just going to make them feel attacked and then act defensive, which won’t help when you’re trying to get them to understand your point.

it is a dark stormy night. the infamous thalmor emissary elenwen sits in a dimly lit room in the bowels of the embassy. clasped in her long fingers is a tattered book, whose bright pink cover contrasts almost nauseatingly with the dull walls and furniture. a deep scowl is etched into her face as she scribbles viciously, her entire visage a picture of fury.
'this nord is the nastiest skank bitch i've ever met. do not trust him. he is a fugly slut'.
she then yanks a photograph from her pocket, slathers it in glue with all the fury of a warrior in battle, and presses it to the paper. she stares down at the oblivious face of ulfric stormcloak and smiles as she snaps the tome shut. another successful entry in the thalmor burn book.
i’m a hopeless Romantic. walk with me in the graveyards of gothic cathedrals, transcend the confines of elitist and rationalistic structures of discourse, and join me in an eternal spiritual quest for the strange and sublime.
