This pretty much says that anyone who discusses alternative theories, and enjoys to keep the company of others that think the same, are objects of
discussion and ridicule. I am in a committed relationship and would not use a dating app and I am disgusted by this. If you want to talk to others
that have similar interests through an app you should not be publicly shamed by someone outside of the community.
I've encountered this numerous times over the years in social gatherings and places where strangers mingle and converse. Situations where people will
get angry and dismiss even the possibility of being friends with someone because they don't agree whole heartedly with one another. It amounts to a
childish tantrum like "Oh you aren't as passionate about the environment as I am so EFF you!!"
As CT minded folk we do have to realize and accept that their are some people and theories out there that do the whole genre a great disservice and
these looney toons are often the ones that skeptical people immediately think of. My advice to anyone trying to build a relationship with someone who
is not already keen to these theories is start small with conspiracies that have a good base of evidence. Do not overload people with every off the
wall theory you have heard.
I like to lead by saying "Hey I heard this crazy story one time so it goes like this...doesn't that sound crazy but what do you think?" If they
dismiss it outright I'll typically agree and say something like "yeah but that would be some crazy shi if were true though" and laugh it off. If we
really want to spread awareness and open mindedness about these sort of theories we need to start small and gentle with people and ease them into it.
Last week I came across a dating site for lesbians. I figured I would sign up to get a little insight into lesbians. After a little conversation,
they found out I was not a lesbian and not interested in discussing lesbian issues. After that, they didn't want to talk to me. Go figure.
