That pole girl needs to chill a bit, lest she fucks the team over someday by hurting someone that didn't deserve to be hurt.

Oh, you mean the way patriarchal men, colonialist countries and everyone in the upper tiers of the kyriarchy have been doing for decades?

If that involves drawing a weapon on an unarmed man for the most minor of offenses then yes exactly like that...

???

When somebody doesn't know what they're doing wrong, hostility can only alienate them. In a war of ideas, persuasion is the only victory and alienation the bitterest defeat.

I assume this scene is a continuation of Tat poking fun at the Sisterhood.

Not at all true.

We are actually right now going through a series of culture wars which are effectively being won through attrition, using shaming and alienation as the primary weapons, and the fact that it is working means "persuasion is the only victory" is completely absolutely false.

If it wasn't false, shit like the gay rights crusade would be going completely differently. It's a culture battle which is primarily being driven forward not by persuading 'fence sitters' and entrenched bigots away from their position through compassionate argument, but rather is mostly marked by the constant act of gay rights advocates shaming one side into silence, ruthlessly and ceaselessly rendering anti-gay sentiments to a realm of deviance that becomes reflexively criticized. They are shamed and silenced, effectively, to the end that it minimizes the intergenerational transmissibility of their ideals.

You could maybe criticize this by wondering if the ends justify the means and if this might be driving a reflexively intolerant attitude that trains people towards habits that are negative influences to critical thought and the ability to hold discourse, but you absolutely can't fault its utility. If you try to make an argument of utility in the battle of hearts and minds, you're stuck conceding that this shit works where other shit does not — or, at least, doesn't seem to work nearly as fast.

You also tend to notice in all these related social discussions (sexiam, racism, homophobia, whatever) most people are of the opinion that they generally tried and like to try the persuasion bit, but had their desire to do so really fucking hammered out of them by how little good it seemed to do.

Not trying to be a deuche, guess I was just pointing out the obvious.

The small girl has always been the more intense of the three, considering past comments, just pointing out if she keeps going this way someone is going to have a broken nose.

Except in a culture war where the "alienated" are the future embarrassing racist grandparents of today.
