WIthin a few hours of posting this, I lost a handful of Fediverse followers.
I'd rather people stop following me than send me mean messages, so I guess it's okay!
@emacsen I wonder whether I have any followers who'd unfollow me if I said that
Then again I wonder why I have any in the first place
@emacsen I think I prefer the messages, because that may lead to something productive.
@emacsen I'm apparently left-wing by US standards and right-wing by UK standards, so I get it. 😅
I've found over time that the route to a quiet life is just sticking to LGBT politics, making fun of whoever's in power in my country, and not jumping into other peoples' mentions over ideological disagreements.
Being open-minded and listening to other peoples' worldviews and complaints about their lot in life has made me rethink a lot of stuff myself, so I've still grown as a person :)
@trechnex I'm a US far leftie, EU centrist, I think.
