You're absolutely right that I am having trouble understanding what you are talking about. Whether that is my inability to understand or your inability to explain is probably best determined by a third party.
As for the above though experiment, you can hear some clues to it in the GB 2.2 podcast. They talk about an outspoken feminist and what they don't like about her. I don't remember the details, but I remember that they were speaking to specific behaviors, not general labels. I can do the same for the AA. He did a great job responding to the viral video "I Hate the Church But I Love Jesus". At that moment I was glad to have him on my team.
So, that's the trick, sorting out behaviors, listening to the logic and trying to ignore personality traits. Almost everybody crosses a line sometimes. And sometimes, somebody goes too far and you have to distance yourself from them. Always leaving room for them to clean up their mess of course. AA has crossed that line, and I support TAE in pointing it out.
