'He moved towards my opinions about womens issues'

Well of course he did. The idea of not having sex for quite some time was probably praying on his mind!!!

I guess it all depends on who it was he was not going to be getting sex from.

Me, of course James.
Being with me is not compulsary. ;)

We are both anti war and pro human rights develpment around the world.

Then you're no different from 99.9% of the rest of the world's population. Do you also breath?

Looking at the human rights records, for many countries, in the world, I am not sure that the percentage would be 99.9%;)
Even Germany and Ireland are doing some boo boos, against human rights rules.;) Probably just about all the other countries are too.

As I said before, it's not worth having these sorts of discussions.

You decribe a situation in which one of the persons in not willing to listen, and in that situation you are right. But between two person who are willing to listen to eachother, and are using facts to back up their opinion, discussion can be very worthwhile.

Even if one person is talking about opinions, I think the discussion can be productive. Feelings, opinions and facts and desires add up to make political reality, in my opinion. And a persons political philosophy is not or at least should not be a stagnant thing.

I find the more you learn about politics, the less sure you are about everything.

That is true.
It is all so complicated. There is always more, to everything. ;)

I'd guess it would be better if we could discuss the issues, but so long as politics gets people's blood boiling, sometimes you just have to avoid the subject altogether.

Or else, we could develop better communication skills. ;)

Oh bugger, but I love irony!

I think everyone you asked would say that. But often if you want to support human rights, war is neccessary.

But isn't war in direct violation to the Human Right to live? You're proposing to wage war for human rights? Well, that makes a nice addition to war on terrorism, war to bring freedom, war to bring democracy and all the other nice excuses for regimes to gain political influence.:(

I was just giving an example, of something political me and my boyfriend agree on. It was part of a description, of how we communicate about politics, on a whole and explaning how these discussions are useful.
I wasnt meaning to start a discussion about war, but I will comment anyway. I dont think war is necessary, in order to improve human rights. In fact, during war I think human rights conditions seem to deteriorate. ;)
