What could possibly go in that second line? If I think stoicism and honor culture escalation are good things that are important to my identity, how do you tell me that such a thing is bad, actually, without simultaneously insulting me? I don't see how that works.
I don't see how either. Yet the typical conservative response to offence induced by harsh truths is "fuck your feelings". And I suspect a number of posters here have expressed similar sentiments.
