Only when I'm asked and if I feel like it... unless I have a little too much "Liquid Courage" in me.

I'm very open and very vocal about my views to a fault sometimes. I'm very passionate about all things in my life so I end up always speaking what I'm thinking or feeling. I try to stay very open to other views though. I hate to be completely one sided about anything. I believe everyone has a right to an opinion and to their own passions. I won't hold back how I feel on topics but I also won't shove my opinion on others. I like to debate (not argue senselessly) and converse about a lot of things. I'm big about respect and will always support others to stand up for what they believe even if I don't feel the same way. :) I'm super lame that way. Lol.

Only if I'm asked really. But still pretty open to opinions.

I'm very open, and very open to listen to opinions. I almost always start a conversation with some sort of opinion there here on dA XDD

I won't discuss sensitive topics with people unless they're my good friends/family. I understand that it's really hard to change people's opinions especially through debating/arguing with strangers online - sometimes people need to experience things for themselves, know someone close to them who experienced them, or have the willingness to get educated about a subject/conduct significant research on it in order to change their viewpoint on some issues.

I tend to only say my opinion if either asked or it's like with friends, but I try to be reasonable and civil and not have the whole 'I'm right your wrong nothings going to change that' thing.
I tend not to give my opinion unless asked for it or if it's relevant. Sometimes if it's been eating at me for a while, I will post my thoughts. But I've learned that there is a time and a place sometimes.

About some things...

I don't mind saying if someone asks but I prefer not to talk about those things because it seems that after you say something someone disagrees with, every nice thing you've ever done for them goes out the window.
I once said on DA that I didn't support abortions and this girl who I had done art trades with, made gifts for and all that shit, started saying all this stupid shit to me.
I also support gay marriage but don't think it belongs in school sex ed. Sex ed doesn't talk about gaspers or boob fucking, so why should gay sex be there? It serves no procreative purpose so the science behind it doesn't need to be explained to them. if they're gay, they'll be gay and that's that.
Most people who I talk to these things about in person have been very understanding and accommodating but it's online where people have no qualms about attacking you and your beliefs that I say nothing.

Yeah, I usually don't say anything online, because people aren't afraid to just completely flip out on you because they don't have to see your reaction or anything. Usually people who do that though are either trolls, or they disagree with you because it's beneficial for them to disagree with that point of view. For example, the abortion thing, obviously its murder, but people want to be able to not have consequences for having sex so they try to say its okay. That way, if they get pregnant they can just kill the baby instead of having to raise and take care of it. Some people just don't know how to accept others opinions and move on with their lives. (Although I personally don't believe that abortion is a matter left to opinion. Its clearly a fact that it's murder.)
