Touchy Subject = Problematic
Trying to analyze said Touchy Subject, turn a critical eye to it and actively not take it at face value = Even more problematic and you ought to be ashamed.

I really don't understand people...

inspired by a recent mythos monologue in which I pondered ignorance and religion and a number of things which can't be discussed in polite company.

Im one of the few people who would put on armor, grab a AA-12, and flamethrower and run strait into the subject and start shooting everything on sight.

"the republicans are all white supremacists that formed the KKK" *heavy auto shotgun fire*
"ISIS is a blessing to all man kind" *flamethrower noises*
"God isnt real and we all evolved from apes!" *more auto shotguns noises*

lets just all settle down and have a peaceful discussions about what we think is right and why we think it and everyone else who wants to rage about it can eat my flamethrower. Why is this so hard for people to understand. More problems would be solved and the internet would be a less rage filled environment if people were just calm and took the time to listen to others thoughts BEFORE going into a rage induced tantrum about how that person is wrong.

Most people are driven in everything they do by emotion and morals. Fewer are driven purely by logic and facts. Fewer still are driven by both in equal measure. This last group is the best.

How is analysing a touchy subject problematic?
Reply
:icongrievousfan:
grievousfan Featured By Owner May 21, 2017  Student General Artist
Because analyzing a touchy subject opens it up to criticism opens up the possibility of finding flaws in the said touchy subject.

Say; taking religion at face value is greatly preferred over pondering over it and potentially coming to the conclusion that God isn't real and religion itself is kind of silly.
OR, a more modern example; freebleeding is a-okay and is a way to stick it to the patriarchy and totally not a biohazard and fucking disgusting by itself, that's just your internalized misogyny talking.

I'm not sure if if it's what you're trying to convey, but nothing occurs to me that's above such criticism?

Yeap.

Nothing is above criticism.

But by virtue of a touchy subject being a touchy subject, it means that the people who adhere to it can't take any kind of criticism regarding their sincerely held beliefs without gettin' their knickers in a twist.

Touchy subjects are just things corporate minds don't want influential charismatic people to talk about because it ignites thoughts and discussion in people that can't be controlled which are usually suppressed in learning institutions until you're old enough to become a public servant reprehensible for crimes lobbied against you.

I can get being offended if someone's not handling a touchy subject that affects you personally in a polite and sensible manner, but honestly some people are getting offended just for the sake of getting offended.  You can take a step back to objectively analyze something without condoning it or meaning it as an affront to people affected by it.

Now people are getting offended on behalf of other people. Whuh
"This person said something that could be offensive to members of {insert marginalized group}, but {insert marginalized group} hasn't lost their shit yet or the majority of them don't care. UNACCEPTABLE!!!"

It should just be a rule of thumb that if the group affected by something is (for the most part) not pissed off about it, you shouldn't be either, honestly

People are always looking for a reason to be offended. Gives them something to feel alive about.

Sadly, I'm highly pro-analyzing touchy subjects without engaging. It's sad because on occasion I'll slip a fact I've learned that counteracts a narrative and am immediately the bad guy.

I love analyzing touchy subjects.
I love engaging in discussions about them slightly less because my brain moves faster than my mouth and I end up tripping over my words and saying things that could be misconstrued horribly.

Sooner or later a touchy subject has to be addressed, but the later it is addressed the most difficult and hard it is to handle.

I like the analogy of how Twilight avoids it, then appears to be above it but ultimately an act that seems chaotic leads to her having to touch the subject in a very uncomfortable manner.:clap:

Although you might wanna put some panel borders on the latter few panels. At first I thought someone had put "touchy subject" above Twilight and it was about to fall on her.
