Folks, that's what the entire Left wants. We can't even feel comfortable having a normal conversation and trying to my nice. I'm lucky I got off with merely a warning, and didn't get accused of sexual harassment.
Assuming your story is true, it’s clearly an extreme outlier and not representative of most Left-leaning people.

On the right, however, the extreme outliers have become the mainstream thanks to Trumpism. Guys like Mike Pence and Roy Moore are part of the leadership.

Cool story dude. Now tell us what really happened if it happened at all.

Tell her/him you enjoy the white male privilege and she/he needs to deal with it.

That someone made some, more reasonable, comment about assuming someone's gender
Bull**** meter = 50%


Bull**** meter = 99.99%


Bull**** meter = 100%

Actually, this whole thread is in jest, but my BIL is a REAL Trump conservative....I mean, he probably cheered when he heard the tape of Trump bragging about women.....

And he lives in the boonies.
And the only place to get a cup of coffee or the very basics is a gas station 3 miles away.

On the other hand, one of my homes is in Trumpland, namely Sarasota, Florida - and we have a Whole Foods there. It is a good people watching place.....everything from multi-millionaire trophy wives in yoga pants to homeless trying to look more upscale and buying an iced tea so they can use the restroom for their dressing area.

If you were in the right mood, you could just people watch for an hour and see how many "types" you can pick out.

The guy you see with the "regular guy look"? That's me.

I agree with this. It made me laugh.

FWIW I've been to Whole Foods many times and never really talked to anyone there and it is the same sort of store as every other grocery store except their food cost more. However, in apple season their apples are the same price as those at the regular super market and since I have a kid who loves apples, I got them from WF because they have less pesticides at WF on their apples. I also bought my shampoo and conditioner there.

Never ran into anyone with an "Obama sticker" on, especially not in 2017 lol. During the 2008 election I do remember seeing a man with an "Irish for O'Bama" shirt on that was green and I thought it was cute.

If I saw a woman only wearing an Obama sticker I would have assumed she was crazy and steered clear. Crazy people are unpredictable so can be dangerous. Unless this Whole Foods was in a nudist colony.

Next time try Trader Joe's.

Nearly every conservative I know IRL is either overweight or obese. Especially the ones in the south.

I agree they don't buy their food at the gas station though lol, More like Publix or Kroger or Walmart. But a majority of Americans in general are either overweight or obese.

You mentioned "real conservatives."

Real conservatives can be a doctor without border (my uncle), plastic surgeon (my uncle), successful businessman (my dad), former special force Marine and now successful business owner (my brother), criminal defense attorney (my brother) Those are real conservatives.

They don't buy their groceries at the gas station, however, they certainly don't look down on people who do.

I buy Copenhagen® Smokeless Tobacco for my military friends. Yes, they are labeled as gun loving rednecks, but they accept me for me, they love me and I love them.

Like you said, everybody is an individual and should be treated as such. Just leave it at that. I don't look down on people who are different from me. Everybody can be a teacher.
