You want to know how Democrats can be tougher?

1. VOTE.

2. HAVE STRONG BOUNDARIES THAT UPHOLD STANDARDS OF CONDUCT, ONES THAT INCLUDE RULE OF LAW AND A STANDARD FOR GOOD COMMUNITY BEHAVIOR.
3. CALL OUT BAD BEHAVIOR AND MAKE IT CLEAR SOME THINGS WILL NEVER EVER BE ACCEPTABLE IN A SOCIETY.

4. NEVER GIVE UP THESE THINGS. FIGHT TO THE DEATH TO KEEP THEM.

5. DO NOT FALL FOR REPUBLICAN TALKING POINTS OR BELIEVE "DEMS ARE WEAK" IF THEY DON'T BASICALLY BECOME REPUBLICANS.
6. Never buy the narrative that, to be successful, one must become the bigger bully on the playground. In other words, human decency and empathy matter. Empathy is not being a doormat. Empathy with boundaries still holds the guilty accountable.
7. Giving in to becoming the enemy to defeat them ... it should be obvious why this means they won without me continuing that statement.

8. Dems were never weak. The problem is racism, misogyny, and the electoral college.
9. The electoral college, created to prevent slaves from being counted as fully people, is the reason Democrats aren't being put in office. They are in fact getting the most votes.

10. We do, white Democrats, need to examine our racism.
11. Men in the Dem party need to examine their misogyny.

12. Everyone in the Dem party needs to examine their bigotry and biases.

13. Vote, you jerks.

There is an idea, rooted squarely in toxic masculinity, that empathy is weak. This is a misunderstanding of what empathy is.

Empathy is actually really something only very strong ppl can manage. And it is supposed to come with boundaries, good ones, to maintain consequences.
Anyone with empathy knows that empathy does not preclude real life consequences for bad behavior. It is not letting go of those consequences "to be nice." Empathy, in fact, is often not "nice" but unyielding in very particular ways.
It's just that women are trained more often to deal with these particular feelings, including meting out consequences for children, and so, they are more likely to understand what empathy really means.
