I'm on gaiaonline.com, and I started a topic in the forums about dreadlocks. I said "please don't post saying that dreads are "smelly, unhygienic etc" because I don't want narrow opinions."

Well if anyone here is on Gaia, you'll know there are a lot of ASSHOLES over there. Some guy said to me "so basically anyone with a different opinion than yours shouldn't post? Not much of a discussion then is it?"

Why is it so difficult to explain to people that those "opinions" are common misconceptions and AREN'T always true? Anyone can have smelly, gross hair without having dreadlocks.
True, I perhaps worded it the wrong way. I should have said misconceptions rather than narrow opinions..

I know this has probably been discussed many times before.. but people like that really piss me off and I just needed a place to rant with people who will understand.
