A lot of posters seem to be interpreting this thread as an excuse to give a rather stereotyped view of their opponents' positions, and then holding them up for scorn and derision (Melon's vision of the drug addicted, alcoholic, heterosexual Christian fundamentalist, and Indra's cursory dismissal of the point of view of anyone who doesn't agree with her, being cases in point) which doesn't really accomplish anything.

Surely it would be a more useful exercise to actually recognise those aspects of ideology that we don't precisely agree with, but in which we admit there may be some merit?

Edit: I just noticed that Diemen as already made the same point, in a pithier way.

as someone who's spent hours trying to patiently explain to you our common humanity (over and over and over again), i find this offensive.
