I go to college and as a Conservative and a student this blog sickens me.

I’m sorry you’re having that experience. As I said above, I personally don’t try to shut anyone down but I do try to challenge them to rethink their position beyond their opinion. It mostly involves raising questions though, not indoctrinating statements. My current classes seem to get that but I’m concerned there may come a time when me questioning someone’s stance will be equated to shutting them down based on a difference in perceived political beliefs. Then I’ll end up on a website somewhere stating how bad I am, and that sucks, because then any future student I have will think I’m indoctrinating them and closing them out — not at all what I’m about…
