So I am once again feeling complicated feelings about tone policing. On one hand, I will defend your right to say what you want and get a response. Being silenced because you’re too passionate isn’t cool. 

But on the other hand, some responses are difficult to respond to. I personally don’t like being yelled at. I can’t handle it. But because I feel that tone policing is bullshit, does that mean I have to let people say whatever they want to me in order not to be seen as a hypocrite?
