I don't think I'm going to post things on Facebook anymore. It feels like any time I do, it turns into a fight. I think people make assumptions about my political leanings, assume that since I'm a Mormon from Utah I must be super conservative, therefore, anything I post must be super conservative, and they must argue against what I've posted. Regardless.
No, really. I can say that abusive, questionably rape-like relationships are bad and I'm wrong.
Which is funny because I'm actually right in the middle as far as politics go. Fiscally conservative, socially moderate. I'm a registered independent, and according to this political quiz, I actually side with the Democratic party on a majority of issues (I'm still basically in the middle but slightly skewed left.) And I'm finding that being in the middle is pretty tough because everyone collectively hates you:
- I'm a tree-hugging, anti-religious, crazy liberal to my super conservative friends and family for believing in global warming and evolution. (I guess I just like the earth and think that not being soley dependent on oil wouldn't be the worst thing).
- And yet somehow I'm also an anti-science, anti-free speech, crazy conservative to my liberal friends for thinking that pornography is damaging and for being annoyed that the government takes 40% of my paycheck, (and that the government is the biggest waste of money and mostly ineffective, inefficient, and useless, bloated corpse of what it should be).
