If, on the other hand, you are able to listen with an open mind, you may safely speak up on any topic. After all, any mutually interesting topic has the potential to lead to one about which you do not agree.
In general, it is much better to withdraw from these sorts of discussions unless you can argue without bitterness or bigotry. Argument between coolheaded, skillful opponents may be an amusing game, but it can be very dangerous for those who become hotheaded and ill-tempered.

If a person wants to talk about a personal matter, he or she should be allowed to initiate the conversation; it is never up to us to do so.
