I wear glasses but that doesn't mean I'm conservative. [I Am Not Your Stereotypical Anything]

People meeting me for the first time think I'm conservative and traditional just because I wear glasses. I am actually the opposite!

What the heck? I have never heard that stereotype before in my entire life. The way people just slap labels on one another is ridiculous.

@SubstantialKick I know right?!

Okay, I think I have to clarify about what I meant by "conservative." By conservative I meant as a personality type, not as a political belief.😄

@BlueCrush I like that you are the opposite of conservative. 🤗
BlueCrush · F
@Sidewinder Okay, sure.

@zorroo She did [u]not[/u] say that. She did not say that she is not politically conservative.

I wear glasses, but not for political reasons, but for aesthetic purposes.

@Sidewinder It's a joke here in the US all democrats claim that republicans are racist
Sidewinder · 36-40, M
@TheRascallyOne Well, joke or not, I'm very serious about my sensory issues.

Plus, I apologize for calling you an ableist.

@Sidewinder its cool

Well, even I am being treated the same way. Well, I tried wearing contact glasses, but didn't look good on me.

Also, I don't get these people.

Conservative?? I thought wearing glasses means you are a nerd 😁
BlueCrush · F
@helenS Yes, that's another stereotype.
I walk around with my head up mah ass.. but I’m not a liberal 🤷‍♂️

.. fyi
I never assume political positions based upon things like physical appearance. I’ve worn glasses most of my life and have never been conservative.
Good to hear that

This is quite weird, tbh. 🤔 I never heard about such problem. What culture are you from?
TheRascallyOne · 31-35, M
@CrazyMusicLover troll culture lol
BlueCrush · F
@CrazyMusicLover I'm from the Philippines. It's a common stereotype here - not in a political sense, but more of personality stereotype.

@BlueCrush Is wearing contact lenses so common that people consider it weird if someone wears glasses?

{@bluecrush] 😆 ha ha ha not like the trump cult who seem to wear rose tinted glasses
zorroo · 56-60, M
some glasses looks sexy.
why you don't use contact lenses?
DownTheStreet · 51-55, M
I think you’re really conservative
BlueCrush · F
@DownTheStreet I disagree.

Try wearing wayfarer glasses 🤓
I wear contacts. Sometimes just 1. Lol.
TheRascallyOne · 31-35, M
I am conservative
