This picture doesn't really represent anything but I like it.
An experience I've had many times;
I'm listening to something or reading something and someone uses words or phrasing to this effect;
"Oh no, I hate X, I never do it any more. Instead of X I now do Y, and its great."
The source of my bafflement and consuming alienation, the womb of a question I have felt churning inside me a thousand times but never actually asked out-loud - "WHY DO YOU THINK X IS OPPOSED TO Y????"
Because to me, that statement is proposing as necessary exclusive opposites, two qualities which are neither exclusive, nor opposed.
I had a list of examples but that's where it got waffly.
Instead I'll make it a question;
Have you had this experience? If you have, what were the things suggested as opposite that you didn't think were opposed at all?
(Usual culture-war baffles are in effect, don't being named individuals in as comparisons if its going to get negative.)
