Just reading of your guys's experiences with this stuff makes me start to go into full-on rage mode, the kind that limits my ability to speak coherently and, if given enough time, will inevitably result in me breaking something.
I'm a lot more level-headed about such things in person, so I'm not entirely sure how I'd react. I think I'd probably start with polite re-education, and if that failed, quickly move on to sarcastic mocking of stupid logic, and then eventually fly into the aforementioned rage. Probably. Depends on the one being an idiot. If it's one of my close friends, it will move much more quickly through the stages than if its just some person who doesn't know what they're talking about.
Anyway my heart, and my fury, goes out to you folks. The people around you may be insensitive morons, but you will always have a safe haven here!
