Like I said, I'm just wary of the conversations.I find your stance on avoiding talking about differences a little odd, since it's a little like being adamant about not describing MBTI type differences because they can lead to stereotyping—which can happen! But providing a model for conceptualizing differences can also lead to more tolerance and understanding, at least if a positive intent exists. I started looking into these issues when I found myself unable to shift my perspective to adequately understand the stances I saw some conservatives taking. I would agree though, that one could interpret a lot of this information to reinforce stereotypes and paint the other side as stupid. There are dangers in both describing differences and asserting sameness.
I've seen enough of em devolve into monkey shit fights at the zoo that I try to avoid where I can.
