I hear ya, Keith -- I just thought the points were worth stating because all too often these days, we have people stating "conflicts" on just such terms -- my right to walk down the street vs. your right to not have the sight of people like me "forced on you", for example -- in the apparently sincere belief that there is an equivalence between fundamental rights, and the "right" to infringe on others' fundamental rights. When the failure to see the distinction is so widespread, it's hard to overstate it.
Yeah the idea of it all is about as ridiculous as having "No Marys" and "Marys only" Restrooms, just so people name Bob can avoid contact with women named Mary.
