I rated your post upward

I rated your post upward because controversial issues ALWAYS contain some minimal basis in truth. People generally don't accept the truth voluntarily as it disrupts their cozy, conditioned view of the world. The solution isn't sticking one's head in the sand like Pliny the Elder's ostrich, but rather approaching such issues critically. Most people don't have a mechanism for evaluating these issues so they just emotionally react and reject them. Press onward.
