just to be clear, would this be used only to express "geographic" location? or can it be used to express begin against some view point(for example " I am against racism")?

You can use it in both senses.

Agreed. "I stand opposite you" doesn't sound right.

'I am standing opposite of you' accepted.

Could you put "across from " instead of opposite?

I am not an English speaker but, in this specific sentece, is it not more common to say "in front of"?
