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.

My girlfriend leans slightly right, in part because she grew up in the deep south with military parents who enforced a ton of conservative views down her throat. She is however, able to think for herself and can't bring herself to stand behind leftist ideology.

I am directly in the middle; A moderate, who is able to see both sides at REASONABLE intervals. Because I'm not a liberal or left leaning really at all, I refuse, yes I have been attacked. For my own views (or lack thereof before I started really voicing my real opinions.)

I actually came to Ovarit today to post about coping with the loss of friends, or even feeling like I have to un-follow public figures I used to adore. Because cancel culture is running rampant these days, and who knows...do they ACTUALLY feel negatively towards the gender critical crowd, or are they following the bouncy red ball.

I don't trust politicians, well the Government in general. I've always voted blue in the past....but come 2024 I may be making a very different decision, and that thought is frightening. Seems there isn't really a place anymore for moderate/right leaning lesbians who don't buy into this toxic trans cult BS.

I have felt that and gone through it myself. Loosing friends due to political beliefs. For me it started in 2016 when I stated an opinion my gay group and they started casting me out. It sucked then but I'm glad to be out of that drama group now because, Good Lord they would be insane by now!
