In my world, a person can express a dissenting opinion about a trend without being labeled "pro" or "anti." For all you black and white thinkers out there, an entire spectrum of opinions actually exists on every subject you feel strongly about. Prismatic thinking isn't limited to either/or scenarios. So just because I don't feel strongly about YOUR opinion, doesn't mean I belong to the other camp, nor does it mean I haven't made it up my mind. Perhaps I am able to understand the polarity without buying into what is probably an overly simplistic viewpoint. PRO-TIP: Most polarities are (because that makes it easier to illustrate the differences).

That is awesome to know, because I thought I was the only one that felt that way about expressing an opinion. Every time I state something I feel as if I need to be careful. Oh he is a right-winged nut job because he believes in a balanced national budget. Or I mention something about religion and all of a sudden I am a bible thumping non-tolerant hick from Texas. I then have to qualify that I spent a few years in pursuit of a Theology/Philosophy degree. Then my religious statement holds water. [Insert face palm].

I'm not immune from either stereotypes nor prejudices like the ones you point out, but I do try to compensate for them. And I think we all do that just a little bit so we don't immediately sound like raving lunatics. We can also dial-up the crazy later :P
