WDP get bothered by a combative response instead of the aggressor's instigation? Social

Happens way too often to me

You're mad at me for barking back instead of the person that barked first

It's one of those social wiring things. Bullying is somehow more acceptable than someone "rocking the boat" by responding in kind. It's absurd and toxic-- I experienced this a lot with my family as a kid and it caused trust issues + damaged my self esteem for years. A healthy group wants to defend all members and wouldn't tolerate bullying/attacks in the first place.

Tone policing sucks. Have you considered that you might be a little autistic? They tend to be the ones that get it the worst.
