Synonyms of "Stance" and their differences

Q: stance ve position arasındaki fark nedir?
A: They are often used interchangeably, but there is a core distinction, which is sometimes made. Your stance is the manner in which you stand, e.g. with your legs touching or spread out, or your arms up by your chin as if ready to fight or dangling by your sides. Your position is your location, but can also refer to whether you're standing, sitting, lying etc., and can sometimes be used in reference to which direction you're facing; it may also be used to refer to the sort of environment you're in, e.g. inside versus outside or in a forest as opposed to a desert.

Both are often used metaphorically, in which case they tend to refer to the same concept.
Q: stance ve position arasındaki fark nedir?
A: Difference
Stance is the way you position yourself, like how a samurai positions himself when holding his katana.

Position is your location usually, although you can use it to describe yourself compared to someone else.

Eg: I am to your north!

Meaning 2 definition:
Stance has another rare meaning which position can also be used in:
Stance also means your position on something. Position meaning your belief on something

In both meanings the words can be interchangeable and mean the exact same thing, but if you want to be 100% right then there’s the meanings and the differences 😁

Meaning 1:
That samurai’s stance was definitely the coolest way to stand.

Ah.. I mean that dude’s position on the running blocks looked pretty cool.

Meaning 2:
I think his position on the matter is kind of ridiculous since children should obviously not be allowed to live by themselves

Well you should keep your stance on the matter to yourself because not everyone believes as you do.

Meaning 1 and 2 combined for some extra understanding on how annoying English can be:
Nope, in my stance, I think the samurai’s stance is totally better. I can see why you take that position on believing the runner’s stance was better though.

*In case you didn’t know*
Position can also be used as the following, but stance cannot.

My position is on 3rd street

What am I supposed to do in that position, the dude has a gun to me and tells me to give him money!

Q: It was a bold stance to take in Japan, but in many ways it was a success. One of the most remarkable successes was the second animated film. Written and directed by an unknown animator at the time, Hayao Miyazaki, the film has since become a classic in Japanese cinema, along with The Seven Samurai of Kurosawa. For this charming Ruritanian romantic action movie, Miyazaki created a number of fascinating characters, especially a sweet princess. She was somewhat reminiscent of Hepburn in the classic bitter-sweet romantic movie Roman Holiday (1953). The 1979 movie later became a cult film for Japanese animation fans, much to the dismay of Lupin's creator. He was praised by fans for a character he did not create. bu doğru görünüyor mu?
A: Perfect! If I were to change anything, I might change “especially” to “particularly,” but it works either way.

I reckon that would sound more natural to native speakers.
Q: What is your stance on gun controversy?
A: I haven't watched Greys Anatomy yet, but I'm sure many americans don't think the same way as the show. I'm not american myself, but I have seen that many americans carry knives in their purses and have guns in their houses. Even though this show wants to prevent shootings from happening, many people in America think they're safer with guns. In my opinion, having guns or arms at hand is bad, because something that shouldn't be normal becomes normal. Kids start to think that using guns for defense is normal, and having them in their houses makes it easy for them to play with guns.

I don't mean that all people in America think that way. Also, I'm sure that most of the people don't have guns, just a small amount.
