Has This Ever Happened to You? Either-Or edition November 1, 2010

Just a quick post about something that I was musing about. Has anyone else encountered this resistance to letting go of either/or thinking? I have often said in conversations about various matters that I can’t be in an either or about a subject, because I think it’s a false choice, and that for example, I’m not either polytheistic or monotheistic, but both mono and polytheistic.

That is too specific an example, but too often when I speak more generally and say that I don’t think in either/or but tend to be be more both/and, people go “wha?” It’s like I have suddenly started speaking a whole new language to them, and they’re totally lost all of a sudden.
