Well before I give you my short answer I want to mention that my girlfriend went to the same college as me and is very intellectual and we do have
very common belief systems; although some things may be different I can sometimes change her mind about them. I'll give you a couple examples:
As a Libertarian I've stated before that we should care about our country and our people before we go out handing billions of dollars to other
countries as we should fix ourselves first. I've made it abundantly clear to her that is what I believe. Now whenever current events or news brings
up topics like sending over foreign aid she says the same thing that I do and has said it multple times when we talk lol. "We should be taking care
of ourselves before we take care of the rest of the world, we have enough problems".
Another great quote, except this is from the Bible, from when we've had religious discussions such as the female pastor at my church; and her stating
that females shouldn't be pastors. As well as some other Bible references she has taken literally, to which I tell her the famous line, "Well the
Bible says that if you stare at something dirty or erotic you have to pluck out your eyeballs". "But have you or anybody in your family plucked our
your eyes? lol. Now when we have various religious discussions or debates for a few weeks that was one of her favorite lines, she repeated the
"plucking out your eyeballs" quote on numerous occasions.
Back to politics. We've had many political conversations and I've shown her many different topics and stories to briden her horizon. I've explained
to her that we live in a Capitolistocracy and that our representatives might as well wear Coke logos on the back of their suits because the only thing
that controls our government in money. Now when we talk about politics or politicians she seems to like bringing up the fact that they're being paid
off all the time like I haven't known about it!
My girlfriend is extremely smart and I'm glad that I have a girlfriend that I can talk about actual REAL current events or history about. And
somebody I can debate with and talk too with substance. I'm not putting her down or anything, but I'm trying to figure out about how a females view
on the world changes when they are in a relationship. Is she just adapting to my views too or something else? The only thing I haven't been able to
do is change her mind about the fact that homosexuals are born that way whereas she thinks it's a choice and almost even though I have a psych minor
I can't change her view on that except I think I am making some headway
Hitler and Saddam both said you should marry a stupid, simple woman because you don't have to talk about politics or the world with them because they
won't understand it. However if you do, their brains should be malleable so they'll just repeat your views like a parrot. But they mostly wanted a
simple woman to come home to do the typical wife stuff, i.e. make their meals, wash their clothes, take care of them (including sex, but that's
debatable with Hitler) etc...
So my question to you guys are how do the women in your life discuss topics including politics, current events world history, etc... with you, if they
do at all? Do they agree with everything you say? Do they put up fights and challenges to your convos and are you two polar opposites? Are they
somewhere in the middle? Or do they just not care?
