Misunderstood

Today, I was trying to explain to my mother-in-law how I hated the way my father-in-law talks to me, the tone he uses. She thought I was attacking him and got mad at me. FML

That's a battle you're not gonna win. In-laws are already shaky and questionable to begin with. To scrutinize them is to spark a never ending conflict. Treat yourself to talking to your father-in-law as less as possible.

that's some really shakey and questionable logic you're using there. let's not generalize a whole group of people based on what you've read on the internet.

Exactly. If it’s a persistent behaviour that hasn’t changed over time and you really would like it addressed, the best option would probably to bring it up with your spouse and let them mention it to their parents. The in-laws will be a lot more understanding when it comes from their child and FIL may even explain why he is acting that way (if it’s a conscious effort) to his child.
