  1. I avoid posting about politics on my blog because my opinion is very unpopular and I know it will invite people to bully and threaten me. I’d rather not deal with the drama. Plus, my cousin actually got stalked and somebody found out her phone number and called her incessantly and sent her death threats for posting an opinion online. I think I’m a bit scared to post what I think after that!

    • It’s awful isn’t it. I’m sorry to hear about your cousin, that is so unfair. It shouldn’t be a risk like that.
      As for unpopular opinions, I’m with you. I’m really unbiased with pretty much everything, but when you defend against the popular, it comes across as bias. Either way, it should be okay to think differently.
      Thanks for your comment and honesty.

  2. I totally agree with everything you said here! Personally I refrain from tweeting or blogging about my political opinions mostly because I don’t understand it enough and I try to remain fairly unbiased. I think there’s way too much pressure at the moment for people to be giving their opinions on what d going on, otherwise they “dont care” which is so not true. I choose to stay quiet because I prefer to make my own judgements and try not to jump to conclusions too quickly. It should definitely be an individual choice! Loved this post x

    • Thank you! Remaining unbiased should be seen as a good thing. As you say, it doesn’t mean you don’t care if you don’t comment and anyone who wants to post about issues should be able to when ready and on their own terms x

  5. Politics and money are always tricky subjects. I feel really bad for you loosing really tight friendships over a disagreement in politics, that’s awful. I’m not educated enough on politics to say much on social. I like others posts or even RT if I agree but wouldn’t start a discussion as I get too upset, ha. I’ve seen some tweets encouraging/demanding other to say something and it’s those people I would unfollow, not the ones who say their opinion.

    • They definitely are, people are often so passionate about the subjects. I’ve only started learning about it in the last few years, but I don’t like the taking sides part. I’m definitely right down the middle on everything.
      I hope the friendships will rekindle when the madness dies down, but it’s disappointing. It’s not even from an argument, but hey, life!
      I agree I don’t think it’s nice to demand things of people, if somebody shares a post, I like to see their perspective no matter what they say.

  7. Lots of very valid points here. It’s a bit of a minefield, isn’t it? People love to discuss politics when people are backing up their personal ideas, but once someone disagrees or challenges it can escalate into something nasty very quickly (as it seems you’ve experienced with your friends- that’s crazy!)

    Personally I do post opinions and rants, but that’s mainly because I’m a bit of a gobshite and can’t keep things to myself!

    • Haha, I love that! I think everybody should. I just realised it was causing a bit of a scene when I did. I definitely go against the grain and question everything so I probably just pissed people off 😉
      It should be something that can be spoken about though.It’s a shame it turns nasty so fast.
