    I dont think I have changed my view on anything but I have realised how other passionate other people are on things and how some things are apparently a HUGE issue.

    With DS, my milk dried up at 6weeks and I just went out and got formula and put him on that....no feelings of guilt or that I was doing anything "wrong". I was standing in the formula section at the shops recently and felt guilty.......I felt like mums pushing their trolleys past me were silently tut-tutting and thinking "breast is best!" ...as I fed my daughter her first bottle of formula I felt guilty...I never realised that feeding choices could be such a big issue to some people.

    I also never realised that circ, ear piercing and the such, were such taboo things either. So I guess while it hasnt changed my view it has opened my eyes...if that makes sense.

    I don't know why people are giving Kimberly such a hard time on this. There are two topics I am confident I will never change my mind on: smacking and late term abortion for non medically necessary reasons.

    If anyone says there are NO topics they will never change their mind on .... then Im calling BS on that.

    I once considered asking this very question. I read a couple of pieces in a pop science book regarding personal bias and the impartial debate.

    Essentially it argued that people think that they make informed decisions based on impartial evidence but, in reality everything you think is coloured by your current biases. When presented with information that goes against your firm beliefs, you twist it and choose what to take to suit your initial impressions. Or you just ignore it completely.

    Naturally, as with any sort of study there are exceptions to the rule, but I do think that it goes a long way to explain how some people can be so utterly set in their ways despite evidence refuting their claims.

    *coughvaccinationconspiraciescough*

    But yes, in reading through some of the debates that crop up on bubhub, I sometimes did wonder if people changed their minds on the big things.

    Personally I've found my mind changed more through experience rather than debate. I was a day care worker so I had a whole list of things I was and wasn't going to do based on what I'd seen from other children - boy, have heaps of those been thrown out the window. But I have read the debate threads and found different ways of looking at things. And I think that's awesome because learning is FUN!

    A hard time? Sheesh, you can't question anything without being accused of being nasty!

    You are right though with your last statement. There are some things I will never change my mind on..... Racism and RIC.
