Making political statements in everything you do is kind of like wearing a bikini or banana hammock to the office, supermarket and church.
There’s nothing wrong with swimwear, you look great in it. There are places it doesn’t need to be seen and is in fact, totally inappropriate.
Today I’ve unfollowed three blogs because in each case, ALL of the last five posts I’ve read from each have contained smug politics based diatribes against people of different views. Two were posts about travel, one was a cooking post, two were parenting posts.
I have no problem with a political post. I know EXACTLY what I’m setting myself up to read.
If you want to write a whole post explaining your views I’m right behind you BUT if you’re writing a review of Harry Potter and the chamber of assholes, write about the film not your nasty opinion of Dumbledore’s homosexuality! (Honestly – I did see a post about how that was disgusting in a children’s book. I defy you to show me where it is in any of the books)
If there’s just going to be nasty one liners about troglodytes etc against ANY parties, it’s going to be a goodbye.
