** Reply to note from WOLF1GDSFM [at] aol.com Sat, 30 Dec 2000 09:22:23 -0600 >From Racheli The key way to allow people to cross gender-imposed (or other) lines is by providing an accepting and "safe" environment in which to do so. (This is not always so easy to do, since attempts to keep "deviants" in line are often not necessarily conscious ones. They include jokes, facial expressions and body language, etc.) >From my point of view ( as someone who often holds opinions which are ways away from the main-stream), it's often very hard for the more middle of the road people among us to not be threatened by the mere presence of "lunatic fringe" views. One of the problems is that mainstream views are often accepted as what's "normal" and self-evident (and as such - are not seen as having a political dimension, or as requiring justification), while when someone offers opinions based on truly different assumptions, they are often seen as if they are practically attempting a coup...
