Anmar - the circular firing squad you're talking about is all over the place. The feminist movement, what's left of it, is rife with it. Not to mention what's left of the neopagan community! The gods only know where that will end, but the tale of the Kilkenny cats is a pretty good clue.
Yes. "I got ME right. If you don't like it, you all can go do the other thing." is the only possible attitude to take. It's worse than the 17th century religious wars

My high school was created by a bequest. The bequest had it open for free education for residents of Winsted or Barkhamsted, except for people who went to St. John’s elementary school. I wondered why the elementary school next to St. John’s Catholic church was named St. Anthony’s.
