Reply to "Cognitive dissonance and the black woman"

When I read the exchange last night - HB & thayfen were withdrawing from the discussion because of this:

quote:
Okay....

I do not mean to offend you...

You were attacking an institution I hold dear....

I try not to attack anyone or put them on the spot regarding their beliefs or things that they hold dear....

I would not....

Please let's not continue to argue...

This is why I made the statement I did - IMO, this was an appeal to emotion to shut down the road the discussion went down. I would still respectfully maintain that the uncomfortable parties should withdraw from a discussion rather than attempt to shut it down. Just my opinion - we can move past that.

all? .... there are plenty of women left that do not want structure or an accountable moral environment.....


In the context of HB's post, you set up a dichotomy. Women who want structure & moral accountability (in the context of the groups described by HB) or women who do not desire structure & moral environments. These are not the only possibilities, so framing the issue as either/or is not intellectually honest IMO.
