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 lean right. I have for most of my adult life. I would almost take on the title of conservative though I do not agree with their uproar with "redefining marriage" and some other topics. But I do strive to preserve America and American traditions.

My wife was very liberal leaning when we met so we never talked politics. Since then (6 years together, 4 years married) I've been able to open her eyes to the world around her and have been able to peak her... so there's hope!

I do feel out casted as a conservative because yes, "gays" are "supposed" to be liberal, and when my gay friends found out They sadly stopped talking to me. Which blew at the time, but now I'm glad I don't have that drama in my life.
