It might not change Trent's attitude, but it will definitely
change my understanding, and with that perhaps tolerance/
acceptance or even support of his when I understand him better.
Until now it just makes no sense because I don't have Trent's
definitions/ answers to the above.

We don't have to agree just to understand each other better.

I'm just curious, that's all.
To Trent:
What's the problem with having the above posed questions answered?
Time certainly is not the issue.
