Dear Tone Policing Colleagues

Tone policing is a tactic

Tone policing is a tool

Tone policing is a symptom

Tone policing is a diagnosis

Tone policing is a digression

Tone policing is a fear

Tone policing is harassment

Tone policing is a privilege

Tone policing is a policy

Tone policing is a threat

Tone policing is a result

Tone policing is gaslighting

Tone policing is a tactic for silencing us

Tone policing is a tool to keep us in place

Tone policing is a symptom of your anxiety, white crumbling fragility

Tone policing is a diagnosis of your alienation

Tone policing is a digression from real conversations

Tone policing is a fear of our voice, our ideas, your change

Tone policing is fear of your fear

Tone policing is a harassment of our thoughts

Tone policing is a slowly slipping privilege you are holding on to

Tone policing is a policy on your terms, not ours

Tone policing is a threat to your status quo

Tone policing is a result of your power no longer here

Tone policing is gaslighting

Tone policing is anti debates                          Tone policing is anti-intellectual       

Tone policing is anti-reason                           Tone policing is harassment
Tone policing is racist                                      Tone policing is sexist

Tone policing is anti-feminist                         Tone policing is homophobic and queerphobic

Tone policing is uncivil                                    Tone policing should be banned

Tone policing is gaslighting
