    The comment doesn’t contradict itself. It explains the importance of relationships with coworkers, and then establishes common ground with you as a fellow introvert who works from home. They never claimed to be chatting it up in the office.

    My advice to answer your question is to keep up this exact attitude, though.



  • I see your point, it’s certainly valid, (albeit very sassy haha). I’m not concerned about bigotry or targeting certain identities, but thank you for the explanation. To bring things back to the original point, many far-left individuals are enabling the homophobia of Muslims by brushing any criticism of such beliefs as Islamophobia and incorrectly viewing Muslim Americans as liberals, as was the case in some of the links I sent and in many people I’ve spoken with. This is unfortunately indirectly bigoted toward those of the lgbtq population.

    Also, to respond to your question, no I don’t have any questions, but thank you. And I appreciate the dialogue so far, always pleasant to interact with others and hear different opinions.


  • Though you asked for sources, no liberal source will say “here’s how we are inconsistent in our beliefs”. Besides, Hamtramck, Michigan, voting for Muslim council members expecting a liberal government and feeling betrayed at anti-lgbtq policies is one example of the double standard. As a liberal gay individual in the us, I am applauded by liberals when criticizing Christianity’s effect on the lgbt community, but am called Islamophobic or intolerant for the same rhetoric with Islam, regardless of how respectful or courteous I am of believers. I will never be called “Christophobic”, however. Pretending a problem doesn’t exist will never fix that problem, and if we want a country that provides safety for homosexual individuals we should pay attention to how we align our beliefs.

    Unite under the common understanding that neither democrats NOR republicans are fit to hold office

    I hope the 2024 election is not another decision between Trump and Biden. When George Washington finally stepped down as President, his final words of caution were to avoid political parties, because, as he put it

    [parties] serve always to distract the public councils and enfeeble the public administration. It agitates the community with ill-founded jealousies and false alarms, kindles the animosity of one part against another, foments occasionally riot and insurrection.

    I wish that we did not have such a polarized 2-party system in the US. It’s hard to find a system that reduces political strategizing while encouraging democracy, so I find this document interesting.
