I agree with this, but I kinda want to the limits of your idea on what's inconsequential.

Mostly because, as an example, I have pulled the "it's my opinion, fuck off" card during an argument once because some dude and I disagreed on how seriously I should take gender roles and the subsequent social pressure to fulfill them.

The conversation went something like this:
me- Men have delicate egos.
him- when you say it like that, you're make that social pressure less of a reality, maaaan.

Am I wrong in believing gender roles are irrational and should be laughed at because of their absurdity, because they need to change?



I promise this will lead to more discussion, I'm just super tired right now and can't be fucked talking about Wendt's theory on social construct, and how it applies to "well it's what I think." Not right now, anyways.
