Well I guess it means different things to different people..........

To me, it always meant to try to be logical about things and not rush to make my mind up about something until i heard/understood everything about it........

but it never meant that i had to tolerate something new to me.....or that something was correct just because it was presented to me......I understand that is how some people use the term, but not how i use it....

when my daughter asked me if I would allow her to be a vegeterian I tried to be "open minded" about it .........

I researched it, made sure we could ensure that she got enough protein in her diet......and talked about all of this with her, talked about what she would need to do to make it work............and decided that since she felt so strongly about it, I would support her.

but it was definately something that i needed to be "open minded" about.
