My friend has discovered White Liberal Youtube, and it's pushing all of his friends away, including me! He believes his newfound opinions are correct because he's "thinking about the issues and [we're] not." But as a marginalized person, "the issues" are my everyday reality. How can I make clear to him how much damage he is causing?
In this absolute doozy of an episode, our asker hopes to save a long-term friendship that has recently plummeted down the toilet. Unfortunately, his friend has absorbed and accepted a whole lot of questionable-to-terrible opinions from YouTube. What can a person do when their friend becomes a bad faith contrarian? We're not quite sure, but other topics include: coping mechanisms, flushing turds, and treating an unreasonable person as though they are a reasonable person.
