Is it "dogmatic" to defend a particular point of view? To engage in spirited debate? I would think this the opposite of dogmatic. Yet when I want to engage others in debate, as opposed to maintaining a sort of easy-going, anything-goes posture, I am accused of this. Why should someone feel threatened when his "taste" is under question? If you can't defend your taste, you aren't "entitled" to it.

For some reason, I am also accused sometimes of looking down on popular culture. I love popular culture. I also love elite culture. I'm not too crazy about a lot in the middle range, it's true. Give me Clint Eastwood over Merchant-Ivory any day.
