On Masculinist Aggression

Dale (last name?) addresses a pet peeve of mine: the anti-intellectual shut-up tactic of saying that a contrary point of view expressed by a man is an act of aggression, bullying, attempted intimidation, what have you. In my experience, this is usually a very thinly veiled way of sneaking out the back door once someone has called bullshit on a patently bullshitty statement. But that's just my aggressive masculinist perspective, eh.

I've never thought of you as masculine at all, so I guess your aggression comes from somewhere else.
