    with so many people here, some are going to be jerks. And topics like sexuality draw jerks like sugar draws ants.

      It's worthwhile trying to respond to the jerks. You may open some minds. But you're also going to get insulted some of the time. It's tough.

      It's also really important, I think, to demonstrate that you are standing up for something. God, how much have I gotten out of seeing other people stand up for what they believe in, and figuring out how to do it myself, all the time. (Especially in front of a room of 20+ Texan college students, when it must be subversive and based on leading questions.)
