body In-brief

  • As in other situations where it's used, this is frequently an instance of manufactured and magnified offence (anything with ‘phobic’) and is intended to put the other person on the defensive as it accuses them.

    Technically 'phobic' or 'phobia' is to do with fear and should be met with understanding and reassurance by someone seeing it, not aggression. In these cases it is also the bending of a word to mean something else which is intended to be disorientating and to imply superior knowledge - which if you do not understand then you are obviously a bad person beyond hope

    The response needs to counter this by being factual and unemotive and not agreeing, taking on the guilt of, any of this hurtful stuff.
