Writer's Block: Do (political) opposites attract?

[Error: unknown template qotd]

I didn't think there was, but today highlighted one for me.

Equality of the sexes.

If you don't think women should have equal rights with men, I can't see us ever seeing eye to eye. I won't even apologise for this; I don't see why I should.

If you're going to treat women as if they're somehow less because of their genetics, then I will probably have some very strong words to say to you.

Aside from this, I am happy to discuss and question opposing viewpoints. I am often friends with people who hold diametrically opposing viewpoints to my political and religious convictions :)

Amen. There's nothing to respect about misogyny.

Absolutely this. I get the same about trans rights, too. If you can't treat transpeople like people, then I'm afraid I'm going to have to set fire to your face.

It's all about being a decent human fucking being.

Well said.
