I burned a bridge at about the only place I ever hung out at regularly, about 10-12 years ago. I had been online with these people since 1999. They were there when my husband died. When President Obama was elected, things started to change there. A very few flipped from their previous stance, and seemed to be glad that he was President. Some were more vociferous in their scree against him. I just tried to lay low on the politics, there. I know who my people are. I tried to stick to regular topics like what’s for dinner, pics of pets and kids. There was one woman though, who was loudly anti-Obama, but in so many other ways a nasty person. She was a middle aged woman returning to nursing school. Daily she shit-posted about her classmates. “X is a lousy mother, so she’s sure to be a lousy nurse!”. “Y was late to class AGAIN! I told the instructor she was late and the instructor said she’d handle it. But I guess she didn’t, because Y was in class again today!”. And I pretty much told that bitch off. I was permanently banned. So, that was sad for awhile. But I was right to tell her off, and I’ll never regret it. I post at Crooks and Liars sometimes, and always love the animals at Bored Panda, but I don’t speak up much. I am not entirely comfortable just yet, but I am trying. Because I’m good enough, I’m smart enough, and doggone it, people like me.

Happy to have you here too. overall we're a fairly tolerant lot except for rabid anti vaxxers, and Trumpers. (I may have missed others but they're the main ones).
There's not many places that a gay, atheist, socialist, introvert, furry can feel like they fit in like I do here.
And yes thank you to the cheesecake!
I was shocked seeing the hate people had for Obama. Sure don't want to be friendly with them.
Would you like some cheesecake? Coffee?
People do like you, I'm sure of it.
