Please do! I can help. I was RAKED over the coals and back again when I became a new member here- and it still goes on today. But like you, I believe in equalism. There are some folk here who do not see things that way. Bob, for instance, thinks women should not have the right to vote. (Among many other things.) And I'd be happy to converse with you more about who to watch out for, and who's worth really listening to. It took me a few WEEKS to learn how to ignore the nutters, because it so goes against my nature to ignore. But I've learned that arguing with them really is futile. They are not about to change their minds on anything and it doesn't matter what kind of logic you attempt to use. Hope to see you in the chat room now and then, too...feel free to email me any time.
A fellow equalist here....looking forward to getting to know you!
