Query from a reader (lightly edited):
I am interested in the fact that in patriarchal societies certain ways of communicating/arguing are deemed inferior. Obvious displays of emotion, hedging and asking questions as an oblique way of making a point are all thought to be undesirable and unhelpful, for example.
I know there is a lot of discussion among activist communities of ‘tone policing’, but I wondered if there are any explicitly philosophical texts identifying or analysing this problem. I am already very familiar with Miranda Fricker’s work, but wondered if there are any other resources you could point me to? (They definitely do not have to be related to gendered communicative styles specifically.)
Do leave suggestions in comments!
