everything wrote:- it is "better" in every way
- it should only be used alone as a single style or else it's not this "better" art
- if you use anything else you're not "high level"
- training other arts will confuse it.
these assumptions aren't applied to bjj, wrestling, boxing, muay thai, judo, etc.

Personally, I feel that the Yang long form has the most benefit, for a couple reasons, so anything that doesn't offer as much benefit could arguably be said to harm, I guess?

"Tai Chi is too dangerous to use in sparring or competitions."
and a whole bunch of things like:
"Short forms will harm you as they circulate qi the wrong way"
"You must practice forms at least five years before learning push hands"
"Sparring will hurt your progress in Tai Chi"
"Practicing weight lifting is a no no if you study tai chi"
