Sounds like PC stuff. If we fix language, we’ll communicate more accurately.
I’m all for the ongoing experimenting, just don’t knock others who do it too.
Just watch out for Sapir-Whorf dangers lurking.
Of course there’s an intent formation stage. It may happen simultaneously with choice of words but that doesn’t mean you’re communicating your intent.
Special snowflake, I know how it goes. The rest of us just do things normally but you got a special, “I say what I mean and mean what I say” card.
Or, you’re attempting to abdicate responsibility.
I don’t know what you did when you typed.
I know what I saw and I interpreted it from my perspective.
I don’t know what goes into what you say and do when you talk, outside of:
You have an intent that’s invisible to me.
You form words.
The rest is up to me. The stuff from you? That’s your issue.
I gave you a Communications 101 graph that’s been a standard in Communications from Radio communications circuits in the 1920s to high school “What is Communication?” stuff.
It’s Message –> filter –> deliver –> filter –> recipient. That’s the basic circuit.
Example: When you want to slap someone but can’t, you filter / translate it into words.
Somehow you magically bypass all that stuff. It’s amazing.
It’s words typed on a screen. LITERALLY words.
“Hey, you know ,I might be wrong”.But what I demonstrate and what I consider may or may not be linked.
I’m writing words in a FB group to you. Making an ass doesn’t compute with me.
If you were a small child or feeble-minded, I’d consider the possibility that you were Mr. Transparent.
But in my experience, “I say what I mean and mean what I say” is a movie inspired mission statement of position that means: “I will assert until you comply”.
I’m approaching what comes at me from my perspective.
Are you not doing the same?
You’re doing a terrible job interpreting my statements.
Go by your frame of reference. That’s where you shine.
As your interpretation of my intentions is also coming solely from your frame of reference with no reflection upon what realities there may be outside of your frame of reference, I give you my thoughts and prayers.
beats being dead so I keep coming back.
