    I understand that people have the right to not talk about things that they're uncomfortable about.

    But do you think it's fair for Person Q to say "I don't want to talk about x but I believe a"? Because if Person R responds with a rebuttal to point a then they're accused of not respecting Person Q's wishes but at the same time person Q's point effectively goes unchallenged.

    It's my opinion that by uttering an opinion, you open yourself to criticism and you probably shouldn't make the point if you don't wish to discuss the matter.

    Correct: you can't get away with saying "I don't want to talk about x..." and then go on to talk about it.
