Calling In and Calling Out
When do you call someone out and when do you call someone in? When do you refrain from calling someone out or in?How do you make this choice?
We hear stories about people who are self-censoring because they fear their viewpoints are unwelcome and they fear being "called out" -- as racist, as leftist, as sexist, ableist, RINO (Republican in Name Only), woke, snowflake, hypocrite, disloyal, soft.... Is there a way to draw attention to concerns in a way that isn't aggressive or shaming? The practice of calling in is a critical tool if we want to move to a place where we can hold and express foundational as well as evolving beliefs. This guide is designed to explore where these competing practices have popped up in our lives and better understand where, when, and why we feel compelled to call others out or call others in.
Definitions for this conversation:
Calling Out- Letting someone know their words or actions are problematic in a way that may feel aggressive, can be privately or publicly confrontive, and leans into shame
Calling In- Letting someone know their words or actions are problematic in a way that is sensitive, most often private, and encourages them to think or consider another experience without leaning into shame
