How do you navigate a society that expects you to lean left? Have you ever been met with scrutiny before? Have you ever been or felt excluded? Asking as a slighty right-leaning lesbian because I feel like society has categorized us into "real' and "fake" based on political leanings.

I am libertarian and slightly right leaning. My close friends know my views. Dating is a bitch, not going to lie. I haven't found anyone who shares my views or morals. Most lesbians I have encountered IRL and even bi women (who I usually date) are woke now. Other than my love life the rest of my life isn't impacted by it. I don't share my views with people I know just want to argue or try to persuade me to their side. I am becoming more religious and conservative as I age. I think this is common regardless of sexual orientation. I think for me I am tired of the far right telling me I'm going to hell for being gay and the far left telling me I'm a bigot because I won't suck girl dick. I just want to live my life in peace and not have either side up my ass as to who I'm dating. So, to answer you question in a long and rambling way, yes I have felt excluded but I try my hardest not to let it get me down.

Edited to say: Most of my close friends are straight or bi. I have zero lesbian or gay friends, not by choice, just how life has gone.
