Speaking of straw men, this is definitely one. As demonstrated elsewhere in these therads, it seems difficult to convey the various messages, but I think it's been fairly explicitly stated that differernt "subjective" are not inferior, neither compared to each other nor to an "objective" and definitely not nonsensical, if they work.
