When it comes to cooking on the Egg, it seems to me that most of us feel as though we have plenty to learn. We're very open to sharing ideas and perspectives. Nobody feels as though their point of view is the only one that matters or gets angry if others suggest different ones. OK, I'm probably pushing it there but you folks get the idea.
I'm not sure why but when it comes to political discussions, in my experience it's just the opposite. My father-in-law was a brilliant guy, extremely accomplished anesthesiologist. He also held political views that were very different from my own, and we had some fairly heated discussions. He passed away a few years ago from pulmonary fibrosis at the age of 74. In retrospect I regret not spending more time being open to trying to understand his point of view. To do more listening than talking.
I have never heard of this bustle.com website. However, the lead article on their website currently is "Laverne Cox on Cisgender Men in Trans Roles." I'm gonna go out on a limb here and suggest there might be better sources for opinions on BBQ.
