It's stuff like this that makes you feel as if a follow on social media is an endorsement of some kind because it makes you feel as if trying to understand someone's point of view is somehow giving them something they wouldn't otherwise have.
I'm very aware that I sometimes have to fight myself to not unfollow people or otherwise disassociate myself from them when they have a belief that I don't agree with. Does that one belief negate everything else we have in common? Does that belief actually make them a bad person? Only trying to understand where the belief comes from and what motivates it helps me make that decision.
