Exposed me to a lot of different opinions and ideas that I either never considered or thought much of, because of this I feel more confident to express my opinions instead of keeping them to myself.
I have a similar experience.Yesterday I met up with a friend, and she mentioned to me how much she disliked her brother-in-law. She said "He goes on about how left wing he is but he has these weird ideas about a woman's place being in the home and a lot of his female friends have stopped speaking to him because they find him creepy and touchy feely."
I asked "Does he own a Nintendo Switch"?
"Does he have a thin, wispy beard?"
"Does he drink soy milk?"
"Actually, yes he does."
"Does his Facebook profile pic look like this?" [tilt head to the side, open mouth]
"HOW THE FUCK DO YOU KNOW ALL THIS??"
