it's like there's a sonic equivalent of the male gaze -- the male ear? -- and there are female vocalists that play to it and sometimes it is creepy/gross

With all due respect I was not looking for your "advice" when I robbed that bank. As any fule could see I was merely venting about the iniquities of the system, m'lud man.

My least favorite argumentative technique I see online is the one where someone makes a reasonable and fairly straightforward request or suggestion, only to have someone respond by suggesting that they actually meant a blown out of proportion version of that request taken to a ridiculous extreme that tries to paint the original poster in a bad light. It’s a shitty, Fox News way of reframing a discussion to put someone unnecessarily on the defensive and it drives me batshit to see it, even on ilx, as often as I do.

Like,
Poster A: I wish there were two more episodes of Succession last season.

Poster B: I can’t believe you think that hbo should cancel every other show they have in production just to refocus their entire operation on one series.

my least favorite argumentative technique is when things dissolve into pushing and shoving

If "the noughties" denoted a zero in the decade we must have been in the numpties since 2010. That might explain a few things.
