In my experience as a father, businessman, Marine Officer, inspirational speaker, and Orthodox Christian, tough love never has to be ridiculing. Some people obviously think it should and use ridicule, but I have to question the motives and intentions of anyone who resorts to ridicule. And I have no problem with tough love. I have a problem with people openly ridiculing others and talking about how they enjoy it.
