I am, by nature, pretty darn conservative. But that doesn't mean I can't listen to other opinions.
In fact, my biggest problem with most ultra-liberals I meet isn't their liberal position (unless it's on abortion...I have a hard time with that one) but rather their inability to entertain other viewpoints.
Thankfully, I've found women who can differ, respectfully, and discuss, patiently, and perhaps just as important, change the subject to the latest M Night Shyamalan movie when necessary. You go, Kate!
And in that vein, visit kaka mak.
