The simple rule is: “Don’t speak if you don’t know what you’re saying.”
But sadly, people don’t know understand this simple concept and continue to run their mouth about things they don’t know. Now, I hear you say “everyone does that, so what’s the problem?” Well, the problem is that when an ignorant person starts spreading false information, they mislead others. And we all know just how quick people are in believing everything and anything they hear. So, it basically starts a chain-reaction and the domino effect kicks in which then leads one thing to another.
Funnily enough, something very similar happened recently on Tumblr. A user posted something completely wrong and misleading about “Patriarchal culture.” But unfortunately for that user, a linguist stepped in and completely destroyed the user with hard cold facts!
Scroll on below and see how this linguist stopped misleading information from spreading!
Here’s what the Tumblr user posted.
However, the user had NO idea what he/she was talking about. Luckily, this linguist was here to save the day!
Oh my! Even I didn’t know all this.
Linguist 1-0 Tumblr User.
So, what have we learned folks? We have learned that one should always do a little research before talking about things they don’t know.
Anyway, have you ever schooled someone like this? Comment in the box below and share your thoughts with us!
