i try to avoid getting into discussions about anything vaguely political with my parents bc they never take the time to actually look into issues but whenever it happens and i disagree with them they always say something like “you think you’re so open minded but you won’t even consider my opinion” and it’s just like. hilarious to me honestly. i don’t think im open minded, i know im educated about those topics and for me to consider someone’s viewpoints when they have no idea what they’re talking about is completely ridiculous. like imagine that “why don’t we just print more money” kid from every high school economics class trying to solve americas debt problem. then you’ll understand why im not taking your stance seriously.
tl;dr why is it so hard for some people to say “i don’t know enough about that to have a real opinion on it”
