opinions generate arguments

If you have an opinion, you will have arguments with those who don’t agree with your opinion.  There is nothing wrong in having arguments. This is inherent and to be expected.

What does not fit is when someone abuses you when supposedly arguing with you. Being abusive is not having an argument. It’s bullying, it’s intimidation, it’s something that has neither merit nor substance. Hence abusive language cannot be considered to be part of an argument construct.

The only way to engage with such a person is to disengage. Walk away. You can come back to the argument when they stop being abusive.
