I don't know the word for this concept, but I've had this weird surreal feeling interacting with people whenever I come into it with the attitude that my morals and ideas aren't better or more just. There's almost this feeling of respect towards them. It's weird because it's not like I actively disrespected people or anything.
But, the thing I got out of this thread is to not shame people into a set of morals or shame them out of their morals (or opinions for that matter) but to merely share your ideas and express why you think that way.
The best example is the sex toy comments, I think.
>Personally, I think sex toys are for depraved people who can't just make do with their hand and have to go as far as to buy things for masturbation.
If I responded in a way that shames you like calling you a prude (much like how some people here were shaming snuff film watchers) then I'm just trying to enforce my beliefs by shaming.
However, giving reasons why someone might buy sex toys goes further. Like, I disagree with your statement, some people might have hand injuries that might make masturbating harder or even painful. Others might have difficulties with getting an orgasm. Or many other medical issues that might make masturbating or even regular sex hard to impossible. I do not think that these people are depraved. I'm just a guy who avoids the hookup culture and thought sex toys would prevent me from getting with the wrong woman. Plus, it's fun.
But I see what you mean, the amount of ideologues is staggering. People are becoming more and more divisive over their morals. And I was noticing this before this discussion, I just couldn't put my finger on it. Post too long. Click here to view the full text.
