So your real issue is with other people's free speech, in what you think people might say to you?This is not a first amendment thing Gough.
Rather, one feels oppressed when entering a discussion where the responses are likely to be: BIGOT!
I feel there are many who wish to debate certain topics, but posters on the left just play the man from the outset.
It is traumatic and offensive. One feels like he is going to PC hell just for expressing an opinion.
This is not about calling people wogs or sheilas or silly old poofters. Whole topics are now off limits. It is not politically correct to even discuss immigration, for example.
I think we should reduce immigration numbers because......RACIST!
We have an issue with sudanese street gangs....RACIST!
I went to a Jordan Peterson concert....NAZI!
The wage gap is...SEXIST!
Sometimes I can't sleep at night, such is my concern.
It reminds me of the time we had to put down a beloved family pet. The animal was sick and suffering. The reality of its condition had to be confronted and dealt with. Even though it wasn't a nice situation, the only humane outcome was to put it to sleep.
Now, imagine how I would have felt if I had taken the cat to the vet, and the assistant yelled MURDERER!
Glad we cleared that up.
