Charles' Rules of Argument | Geek Feminism Wiki | FANDOM powered by Wikia
Entering into arguments is not necessarily good: they're tiring and you often don't convince anyone.

Arguments make people defensive. Do not expect your interlocutor to change their mind during the argument. They will only change it later if at all.

In groups, your argument is actually normally aimed at onlookers more than your interlocutor.

Once you have stated your position and corrected any factual misunderstandings, there is nothing further you can do. Anyone who still disagrees with you cannot be convinced by you arguing with them.
