I was referred to this forum by a friend and this is my first thread. Once again, I’m all about ideas first, people second. The moment people can slap a label on someone, whether it’s for race or creed or appearance or otherwise subconscious processes and natural defense mechanisms can kick in to marginalize and ignore the other person’s perspective. We’re all just people, in the end, and we’re all capable of believing and acting in many different ways. Once my points are addressed I’ll be more than happy to divulge anything from my blood type to my personal phone number, mother’s maiden name, religious belief, etc. ‘Til then we’ll wait for the brains.
