I feel like screaming

I’m so frustrated. Trying to reason with an unreasonable person is futile so I gave up trying. But the outrageously clueless things they say are making it SO hard! My instinct tells me to ignore them (and so far I have) but the temptation to unleash my innermost thoughts and annihilate them is overtaking my logical self. Meditation here I come!

Venting is not a bad thing. It's a good thing

A friend of mine wont shut up about “wokeness” and how its ruined everything. Its such an immature and stupid outlook that makes him look like some dumb Trump supporter. Not everything is made for white gamer bros. Just shut up and go eat your Cheetos. Loser

When you argue with a fool

There are two fools arguing. But still, if you can gently and lovingly nudge them in the positive direction without further p*ssing them off; its always the good thing to do.

I had a French friend from a region in northern France that was notorious, for its stubborn people. Imagine a stubborn French person, and multiply that by 10, and you have this person. He wouldn't double down on whatever he believed, but tripled down because no one tells them what they can or can't do to the point they were totally irrational. It took a decade of tolerance and cultural understanding before I just didn't have it in me anymore. I was worn out and done. You just have to let go and move on for your own mental wellbeing.

For those that understand no explanation is necessary. For those who don't understand, no explanation will ever matter.

Best of luck with that.

I think "woke" is a real awakening or an enlightenment similar to the European enlightenment in the 17th and 18th century, and I believe it's been happening for years. Those conservative types twisted it into being “woke” which to simplify is the polar opposite of a true awakening.

The origins of the word woke originated in African American culture in a blues song, and maybe that's one another reason why they hate it so much? When a black dude starts using the word woke, and questions the powers that be, it's a significant threat.

Those types of people, like your friend, are threatened by anything that threatens the status quo, the status quo being white male privilege. Have you noticed the only people that use "woke" are mostly middle-aged or older white men? I rarely hear anyone under 40 using it because we're not threatened like they are. We've evolved.

It’s extremely difficult

To win an argument with an intelligent person… and impossible to win one with a stupid person.

They don’t have to be stupid to be unreasonable. Sometimes they’re just oblivious or intent on avoiding accountability. Either way, trying to reason with them is a losing battle.
