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 have voted for Democrats all my life, but the past will not necessarily be prologue.

I like this stance: don’t ask me which side I am on. Instead, tell me what the issue is and I will tell you what I think about it.

For me, the problem with the Left is not just their irrational erasure of women. I am prepared to question everything.

I am starting to renew my appreciation of some of the values of the “West” that continue to attract immigration to the U.S. and Europe. Do I want to trash rule of law? Freedom of speech? Innocent until proven guilty? No. Do I think the color of someone’s skin makes them racist or not racist? No.

I asked myself why do some Blacks vote Republican? That question opened me to hear/read some impressive conservative Black voices. Currently, just getting into WOKE RACISM by John McWhorter.

I think I have left the Democratic and Left Media bubble I was in. I am looking to avoid getting bubbled in future. I will not “become” a Republican. I will be independent. I will adopt the best reality-based positions I can find. Often these will be somewhere toward the center.

I will remained woman-centered. :-)
