  1. It's a language problem in my opinion. Most people DO know what open minded means. It means that if you hear an argument out you're willing to consider it may be true, regardless of your previous stance on it.

    But when some (and I know this will sound snobby) less intelligent people hear it they believe what's actually being said is: You are wrong for not agreeing with me.

    So open minded has for some come to simply mean: You are wrong, regardless of your arguments and counters, and instead of saying you are wrong it appears more convincing to say you are not open minded.

    Thus it is used in a way it is not meant to be.

    A bit like when someone says 'I refute that!' without actually putting up any proof or explanation. Some have seen it used in a convincing fashion and believe it means 'I disagree with that'.

    But then due to the contexts in which it is used, it's then used in a way where it appears to make sense, even though in context it doesn't.

    What doesn't help is that I can't be bothered to pretend to respect views that are so clearly based in logical fallacies, or that are dressed up in empty terms.

    I'm still a little in shock though by the claim (from another poster) that anyone has a 'right to' a woman though.
