STOP DEFENDING GIANT BOMB WHEN BRIANNA CRITICIZES. STOP STOP STOP STOP STOP.
This is a huge part of our problem as a community. We love the guys. They're wonderful. We spend hours of our lives with them every week. So, we get extremely defensive when we feel they are mischaracterized. And I absolutely agree that they ARE mischaracterized a lot of the time.
However, we are not hurt when they are criticized. It is their job to defend themselves against people, not ours.
It might be OK to do a little bickering on Twitter with another person who is not suffering, but ABSOLUTELY NOT when that person has been on the receiving end of death threats from people like us.
Here's your job when Brianna criticizes:
1) Read what she has to say with an open mind and heart.
2) Offer her either silence, thanks, or encouragement.
3) Think more about what she had to say.
If her criticism is unfair but it doesn't hurt GB, it doesn't matter.
If her criticism is unfair and it hurts GB, no one has a bigger voice to defend GB than GB itself.
There is literally zero positive result from you getting defensive on GB's half, because you are not inside the circle of suffering.
Oh, and here's a super-crazy notion: Maybe we are all growing a little bit all the time and benefit from criticism!
Why should anyone be immune to disagreement? Honestly how is that not incredibly patronizing?
Maybe taking the context of your response into consideration?
Let me tell the woman that left her house for fear of her life on how she should feel.
Let some shit slide, your opinion doesn't have to be interjected into every conversation.
The only way to have a discussion is to listen, and then respond. If people are listening then they have every reason to respond with their own take on what someone has said.
Also not sure where you're getting the idea that I'm doing this, "Let me tell the woman that left her house for fear of her life on how she should feel." I wouldn't tell someone how to feel about such things it wouldn't make sense to.
Less of a criticism of you specifically but the other users responding, some appear to be thinking there is a debate moderator sitting at the side awarding points and not taking the context of the conversation into question.
