They tend to avoid any conversation that involves vulgar language. If you were to tell that person that you were pro choice I think that would definitely impact there opinion of you. Also it would most definitely effect that persons choice in a mate. I know it might be viewed as cowardly but when we talk about issues that we don't totally agree on... for instance gay marriage... I typically just tell that person that I respectfully disagree with there position. To me it's just easier. I'm not letting them walk on me because I am telling them I disagree with them and if they wanted to debate the issue fine, I'm pretty sure everyone knows I'd debate if this particle of sand was bigger than that particle of sand... But for the most part I think you are better off spending that time you would spend pissing off that friend (trust me, I have done my fair share of pissing them off) trying to find something you do agree on... or just random interests you both have. For instance me and you could talk in depth about many things and that's cool... but I'm sure if you were trying to talk to many other members of this site your post size might be a little less in depth.
B-mac is hilarious. Team Awkward FTW! And I'm glad to hear that you would read my lengthy posts ahah
