And in my defense I have tried countless times to educate and inform certain posters who refuse to change.
Not everyone needs to be "educated" to your ideology.
Would you think it right that sometimes you may need to be "educated" to an ideology different than yours?
"refuse to change"..
Change isnt mandatory. Change isnt always a good thing.

Truth, facts and science are not an ideology.
I fully acknowledge that certain conservative beliefs are based on the gray area, where a person's morals come into play. For example, abortion. I can honestly see why a person can believe that life begins before birth, which brings into question at what point a choice for allowing abortion should be permitted. I fully get that. People can have honest differences on that issue.
But, there are many, many policies that are not at question, that conservative views are based on hatred or ignorance. For example, global climate change, or ----, the current Covid crisis. Conservative ignorance is getting people killed.
As for educated, yes, people have to be educated (in the broad sense of the term) on many issues. For example in the 80's and 90's I held many ignorant views on homosexuals, over time I educated myself, I met and grew to know and became friends with several gay men and women. I read about the struggle for gay rights and changed my opinions. I have done the same thing with trans people.
So I'm sorry, but when people defend the actions of the president in these issues, I having nothing but contempt for those people. Because his actions are getting people killed. There is only ONE acceptable action the president should be taking and that is to set all politics aside and do everything in his power to protect all Americans.
By the way, change is not mandatory but it will happen whether you are on board or not. Change doesn't care about your feelings or opinions. That includes societal changes. As facts and knowledge become more prevalent regarding trans' issues, society will change, it is inevitable. Because, get this, people are basically good
