Is there ANY post you don't try to insert your political views into?

I only insert my political views if I'm invited to. It's so annoying when a political debate breaks out on a simple post, that is nothing about politics.

@latinbutterfly I only do if I sense a deteriorating situation, and have a chance to make it far worse 😁

@Slade I'll bet you would 😂.

Nah. i generally don't, when I make political posts they're clearly marked as such.

I do call out those who pretend to be "apolitical" while low-key (or so they think) pushing a certain political narrative tho, do that may get perceived as me injecting politics. In reality, I just highlight what's already there, under the rug.

Yes, every post that is politically or religiously charged I avoid and stay away from. I will emoji them at best if I agree but that is all. I hate political views and posts, as well as religious post.

I have my own views and practices and I keep them to myself.

@WillaKissing I respect that

@MeowsoliniReturns Thank you.

Only if there really is absolutely no relation to politics or values which is rare. Ideology and politics influence nearly every part of life.

Of course! What do you think I am, some sort of ignorant, toxic, fascist GOP MAGAt Trump supporter?

Yes, politics are very small part of life. Important because it impacts life but only relevant in discussions on here, to me anyway, as it reflects a part of who you are. Absence of politics shows who you are also. Not good or bad just a part.

I rarely ever talk politics and definitely don't insert my political opinions into random posts or conversations not relating to the subject. No one should be doing that crap.

@LadyBronte It's all day everyday. Like they are obsessed.
LadyBronte · 56-60, F
@MeowsoliniReturns Yes. You have to wonder what has left them unable to see anything else. 🤷🏼‍♀️

I avoid them. Especially if I see that the responses have descended into chaos and acrimony. I enjoy a respectful debate but too often on SW, it just turns into a senseless argument or conspiracy theories.
MeowsoliniReturns · 51-55, F
Literally none of them
I don't do politics
People are too insane over it's too much at times ...actually all the time

@Chernobylplaygrounds Like rabid dogs
Should politics be avoided even if it's relevant? Do people have a sort of right to complacency in public with silences inserted where politics goes?

I generally stay away from American politics as I’m not American. However sometimes I slip.
@CrystalSkull I can forgive that. America is a big enough player on the global scale that whatever is going on with us internally can have an international impact. Also, most of our national news lately would be funny if it weren't so sad.

You’ll never see me discussing politics here or on any other social media for that matter.

@TBone Smart man!
pdockal · 56-60, M
All of them unless they are already a political post
MeowsoliniReturns · 51-55, F
@pdockal Fair play
pdockal · 56-60, M
Then it depends on the post ....

I am amazed at how quickly a nonpolitical post can get hijacked here.
MeowsoliniReturns · 51-55, F
@DrWatson It blows my mind
cherokeepatti · 61-69, F
Recipes and fixing crap and birds.
JuniperEmz · 22-25, F
If they're about dogs or cats
Smokey · 46-50, M
You know, Donald Trump asked me that once...

All joking aside, I try not to do that. It's really irritating when people bring politics into a subject that has nothing to do with it. Even a strongly opinionated person like myself knows there's a time and a place.
Lilnonames · F
Yes, in none of them
MeowsoliniReturns · 51-55, F
@Lilnonames I like that!
