How is that a close one? Antonio represents a pretty standard and broadly reasonable view of sex and gender issues.

I don't think I need to comment on the comparative. Tongue

Music is about taste. Antonio's ideas on sex and gender seem to be very different from mine, from what I read here, but nonetheless interesting enough for a discussion.

I actively seek out conversations about sex and gender with Antonio, and BRTD could probably turn me on to some genuinely interesting music as long as we didn't discuss metal. Voted Antonio.

AIDS vs a cold.
Discussing it with BRTD might not be so bad since he can be pretty affable.  You might think "well, his taste in music is awful... but whatever"...

But then you meet Antonio and have a somewhat heated argument about gender and sex.  And you find you should be able to throw it off completely... after all you are comfortable with your gender and you have enough sex... this shouldn't be affecting you so badly... but the symptoms just get worse and worse the more Antonio keeps talking.  Before long, images of emo-violence and crusty unbathed masses of dudes wearing cargo pants and black food-bespecked band t-shirts with a beer in one hand and their other hand in their pocket start to flood your mind.  You start hearing people screaming bloody murder about how much they love Jesus while a guy with a face tattooed on his face ruptures his vocal chords in his quest for music nirvana (but not that nirvana)

And then it dawns on you.  Your defense mechanisms were completely destroyed in the interim by BRTD's bizarre music tastes.  WIthout you even knowing it...You have contracted BRTAIDS.  And an innocent argument with Antonio... something you should be able to fend off the way you flick a mosquito that has landed on your arm... now means certain death.

Thanks Obama.

"guy with a face tattooed on his face"?

What the hell? I've never seen any guy like that in a band. More like tattooed sleeve, yeah that for sure, but facial tattoos?

That depends on whether the discussion is calm, polite and substantial. Wink Leaning towards music with BRTD though.

I'm more likely to join in conversations with BRTD about music, but only because those "conversations" consist of easy, low-effort potshots against someone with hilariously awful taste.  The fact that he's arrogant about said taste only makes it "better".  

I'm not super interested in having sex/gender conversations on the Internet right now, and I respect that some of y'all find Antonio's affect off-putting, but his instincts are generally in the right place, so as far as serious conversations go that would easily be my vote.

Easy vote for Antonio here, and that would not be a pleasant conversation me thinks.
