Boredom and laziness mostly, and i like the more raw sides of the internet like this, they are always more interesting
Man. You're a rare sorta breed nowadays, aren't you?I hate how censored pretty much everywhere else has gotten. I hate how we can't even have discussions or raise questions about trans issues and how they interact with LGB issues, or the identity politics gradually drowning out and delegitimising the core issues the Democratic party has always (supposedly) stood for and should be focusing on now, like worker's rights, a real living wage, and green and technological initiatives. It honestly makes me sad, as someone who has lived in blue states my whole life and always voted D (and probably still will in the future, despite the bullshit) that I can't even have these conversations with people without it being labeled hate speech. It's madness.
Maybe. But I have a feeling there are a lot more out there that just don't talk about it, and have drifted away from political conversation altogether because they're tired of the cognitive dissonance. Basically everyone I know is D leaning, whether they still vote D or not, but the ones I've stayed friends with over the years are those who can have a rational conversation with a person they disagree with and not turn it into some us vs them, good against bad bullshit. And it's not a coincidence the ones who aren't capable of that are mostly those who drank the trans/IDpol koolaid wholeheartedly.Man. You're a rare sorta breed nowadays, aren't you?
