Dear person in a position of privilege,

Do not look down from that height you’ve done nothing to earn and try to dictate the behavior of those that are suffering. You can’t declare, “I will only listen to your argument when you present it in a way that I like,” as if you were a stern parent chiding a toddler for not saying please when asking for some treat they don’t actually need. While I completely agree that rationality and politeness are more appropriate and definitely more effective in any debate, “the way some of you act” does not actually change the argument in the slightest, nor invalidate the right of the group to fair and humane treatment.
