Top mind asks for proof that trans people face discrimination. When given proof of frequent violence against trans and non-binary people, Top mind replies “that has nothing to do with this.” Why do they even bother asking for evidence in the first place?

    win/win: either no one responds and it lloks like they are right, or they dismiss it as irrelevant. ultimately, whether these are media manager, russian bots or /r/unwittingamericans they are fully aware that others are watching and must bolster the tribe.

    Because they never argue in good faith. They don't actually care about evidence or facts...just a narrative that they choose to believe no matter what. When they do engage in "arguments," their goal is not to seek a better understanding of an issue, but to spout propaganda and then shutdown, move the goalposts, or change the subject entirely. There is no point in engaging.

    Silly. If you just deny all the evidence of something happening, then you can keep claiming it doesn't happen. That's why I tell my doctor that I'm not gaining weight despite what it says on the scale.

    "So what if trans people are being hunted like wild animals? Doesn't mean that they're being discriminated against; people are just assholes." How do you even function with this kind of mental gymnastic

    >Why do they even bother asking for evidence in the first place? Because they then rope you in, and if you then decide "I'm not dealing with their bullshit" because they basically are just circlejerking themselves, they get to say "Yeah there is no evidence of X or Y lol"

    > Why do they even bother asking for evidence in the first place? Because they actually believe their own bullshit. They're *very* sure they'll be able to DESTROY it with FACTS and LOGIC.

    “So because you’re not catered to, you’re oppressed?” Self aware wolves right there. Also I thought the right supposedly lived equal freedoms and equal rights for all?

    They ask for evidence because they know they can just dismiss it with "fake news" or call it a biased liberal source or something and there's nothing you can do to "counter" such a stupid argument. Because that's essentially how they initially pull people in, they get them to mistrust reliable media sources so that any time those people get shown evidence that counters their ideology, they can just easily dismiss it and still stay brainwashed. That's exactly what they did with things like Gamergate and such.

    TIL asking to be treated like a human being is “being catered to”
