8. Not all changes in position are 180 degree flips.
Edited on Sun Jun-12-11 02:39 PM by MineralMan
For example, posts from the LGBT community have altered my position on civil unions. Where I once saw them as generally equivalent to same-sex marriage, I no longer see them that way. I still find them better than nothing, but have changed my position to full and vigorous support of complete marriage equality, with mere temporary acceptance of civil unions where they have become the law.

So, yes, I am influenced by discussions here on DU. A 180 degree flip is not necessarily the goal in many cases. Instead, the goal is often an incremental change of position.

Life's not binary.
