  •  Oh they're VERY tribal (1+ / 0-)

    it's just that they define their "tribe" very narrowly, to themselves, their family members, and maybe some friends. Anybody they don't personally know, anybody who doesn't look, act, think, feel and believe exactly like them, is "not people".

    This IS exactly how tribes used to think - they were/are "The People" and outsiders were "not people".

    If it's
    Not your body
    Then it's
    Not your choice
    AND it's
    None of your damn business!
