community meta, contrapoints 

You know, it's been bothering me that all of the pro-contrapoints takes I've seen have been focused on the validity of the complaints folks have about her. People believe those things for a reason, and even if you don't think they're correct you still shouldn't just dismiss the harm they felt. If you don't understand why people are feeling one particular way or reading something different into the situation than you are, that's a great opportunity to ask and learn, not to express astonishment that yours is not the only perspective in the world.

This is not exclusive to takes in favor of her, of course. But in my opinion, validating the concerns of folks without looking into how we can handle them in healthier ways is a far sight better than just dismissing them.
