“Have you ever noticed how violent our language is? Even when we aren’t even talking about anything inherently violent itself?
We tell people to “go f*ck themselves” when we’re angry. We’ll “tear you a new one” when we’re insulting. We “force ourselves” to do a myriad of tasks, “hit on someone” when we flirt, and tell (mostly) women to “suck it” when their power is threatening to us.
That’s a lot of violence right there.”
