Respect for groups that doesn't include respect for individuals of those groups isn't respect at all. In history, some of the worst disasters have been caused by idealists trying to force people into "doing what's good for them." Such idealism not only leads to suffering among its innocent victims, but also to delusion and corruption of the idealists applying the force.
