This "all or nothing" approach is deeply ingrained in their thinking,
That's another thing I do not get: we are not all the same. We all have different needs and wants and desires. It really is hard, impossible, to please everyone. But, to make the greatest number of people comfortable is the best.
That is why I do not understand the unwillingness to talk about gun regulation or transgenders using public bathrooms or selling cakes to same gender couples. As a gay cis-gender man, I do not understand transgenders. I don't care, but I don't understand. A person born a man is happy as a woman. No skin off my nose. A person owning a firearm. No skin off my nose. A person worshiping a specific god, no skin off my nose.
Exactly what right wingers preach but never actually do.
But, when random people hurt, maim, bully, bloody, kill others and we want something done, we start hearing "you hate America!" or "you just don't understand how violated us majority are persecuted!" is just insane.
I am still waiting to hear where anyone has ever called for the complete and total ban on all firearms in the United States from Americans. Even people from EU say "I don't understand how you all can deal with this" yet no demand for bans on firearms. Travel advisories, yes, but not total bans.
