Thank you Engineer. That is a great example. The curious thing is that the extremes are more comfortable than moderate positions. Extremes don't have to be questioned, they are just accepted as is.
It is hard work when you allow people to question your beliefs. It takes courage to question your own beliefs. The extremes provide a safe space where everything is clear and easy. There is no give and take And there are no difficult questions.
Real life isn't that simple. There are facts on both sides. There are consequences to decisions you are sure are right and true. And there are people who are just as sincere as you are on the opposite side of your belief. I respect the people who question their own beliefs, and who acknowledge the facts even when they don't fit their ideological narrative. There is no simple truth; admitting that your truth (any truth) has another side is an act of intellectual courage.
I respect feminism as the idea that men and women should be equal, and there are many specific points made in the name of feminism with which I agree. I reject anything presented as absolute truth and any narrative that can't be questioned. That is when it becomes a problem.
