An interplay between a man and a woman, in which a woman talks while a man tunes her out and grunts occassionally to create the illusion that he is paying attention. The woman may interpret these grunts in any way she wishes. Discussions are inherently dangerous to men, because they may unknowingly agree to things that lead to unlpeasant surprises later.

How you determine whether or not an opinion is right or wrong. Because in spite of the fact that everyone is entitled to there own opinion; an opinion is not a magical forcefield that prevents you from being being wrong. If a fact contradict an opinion; your opinion is wrong. Some opinions are based on bias and ignorance. So, by having discussions your can use these crazy things called "words" to demonstrate that someones opinion is wrong. When you do this; when you demonstrate that someones opinion is wrong their response is usually either "Well, that's just my opinion" (Which translates to: if I call what I said "my opinion" I don't have to be wrong. Which is incorrect because is you have to end a discussion with "that's just my opinion" you are wrong and have demonstrated that you are unable to defend your opinion.) Or an Ad Homniem (Character attack)

Person "Sooo... You don't have any evidence.... And you can't defend your opinion in any way or even answer a few yes or no questions and your not even going to try to have a discussion about it?"

Idealogue "You're just a racist, sexist, homophobe"
