No, the image is simply going to be there irrelevant of our behavior. I'm an opponent of burning down the barn to save the horses, metaphorically speaking.
Since society will not accept us no matter what (short of something outside our control), why make concessions to them? Especially when they have proven time and again they know next to nothing about us and have zero desire to learn? Our concessions will only worsen our condition and yield us nothing.
Honestly 30-30, I don't care what you have, but frankly, I don't believe your "outsiders accept me" or a lot of your stuff for even a second. Sorry. If it is true, Germany must be much different than where I grew up and I'm happy for you, but it doesn't change the basic point or grant you any ground here.
I thought the same... but 30-30 tends to think of anything that does not fit his narrative as "naive" so I'm not surprised.
To address your final point 30-30, about how sure I am... frankly I'm not. I've admitted that to you in PMs. The only thing life has taught me over the years is that I can't be sure about anything. But even if you're right and your methods would grant us acceptance, I'd still be opposed to them? Why?
Because again, I will not sell out good people to get acceptance like you propose. Even if that acceptance were guaranteed, I'd rather live oppressed with all my fellow zoos, than oppress some others meaninglessly to get some semblance of fake "freedom." Any freedom that comes from oppression is an oxymoron. Just think about that for a bit. There's a reason humanity says they'd rather "die on their feet than live on their knees."
The best memories a man can ask for, and eventually, peace.
I am very lucky.
