    Default Spin off.. Do you really respect choices?

    Everybody is different.. Right? We say that we respect each others opinions and choices.. But the feeling I'm getting lately is that we don't.

    We're called ignorant or uneducated if we don't agree.. by people who perceive they know better. Where is the line?

    What entitles someone to have an opinion and express it whilst somebody else isn't allowed the same privilege??

    Not a nasty question, genuinely interested.

    Depends for me. If it is an opinion based upon misinformation, little education and has no basis in fact, then if I have the education and factual information, I am going to challenge that opinion.

    I think it depends in the choice. Bottle/breast/AP/CIO etc I'm not too fazed. If it goes against human rights I tend to ark up.

    I don't respect people's opinions if their opinions are stupid. I don't think, "Aw, it's so good that in Australia that we have the right to an opinion..." when those opinions are hateful and sickening.

    I do think people deserve choice though - the choice to decide how they birth their babies, whether or not they get married, etc etc. Where that choice doesn't harm other living, breathing people.

    Most of the opinions that sicken me come from people who are anti-choice though... so I have no problems with claiming they're ignorant and uneducated - they usually are... or just hateful bigots, which deserves even more flack.

    People get defensive about their opinions which is fine and you can question other people's opinions in fact you should question them.

    But and here is the huge BUT it amazes me how offended people get over things that just don't matter on a large scale. I mean really who cares if some random person somewhere on www thinks your nuts.
    Everyone is different it takes all sorts to make the world go around.

    Sometimes I think that people just want to be heard, they want to feel important, they want their opinion to matter to feel valid and that is all fine and it's a great thing but not when it's at the expense at ripping someone else's POV apart. We aren't talking about murder here we are talking about opinions on life, politics and parenting. Take a deep breath and move on.

    With that said I think many people also frequent forums because they are bored and boredom does some crazy stuff. Makes you feel passionate about something that rarely crosses your mind. Hell Im here cause Im bored.
    The debates Ive had on here are just funny sometimes I mean there is no way I would even bother discussing half this stuff in real life.

    Its the Internet, you take the good with the bad. Beats talking to yourself.
