That's a lot to (incorrectly) infer from an emoji.

Just be careful, man. Idk what you think that means but be very careful saying things like that on the internet and about where you say them.


Y'all know I'm old. Can you explain what's going on here?



They said their partner was a little, but they're underage, so they're a minor participating in kink, and they're advertising it. That's dangerous, because predators.

Gotcha. And yikes.
  
Huh, the explanation above was necessary for me too, although I'm not nearly as old. I thought "little" was just and adjective and wondered why there was no noun afterwords. Whoops. Anyways.

Not a kink because it isn't sexual in the least, but ok.
  
Kink, taken broadly, can also describe non-sexual aspects of a relationship and the dynamics involved therein. Unless you mean something very different by "little" in this case, it definitely falls under the broader kink umbrella. Additionally, when someone says they're a little, it's typically understood to be referring to DDLG, which usually has a sexual component.

Again, please be careful with advertising this online. Or at least reconsider your phrasing.

Yup. Literally half.
  
Only reason I understood was because I use kiwi farms an unhealthy amount.

Depends. We're starting with distanced learning with a possibility of returning in October-December if cases go down and/or the governor okays it

I have a friend living down in Texas, though, who said they're still going in person in a couple weeks, and he might've mentioned that they're still allowing football (I don't perfectly remember, it was a couple weeks ago and among other scattered conversations)

that is an old bio of me i have changed a lil since then
im not as into gaming and youtube, and im neutral in politics
and im not homophobic anymore lol
  
Oh, nice. I don't personally villify anyone over politics so it wouldn't have bothered me if you were pro Trump still, I tend to assume the best of everyone and assume everyone has good reasons and intentions for everything they believe.

That being said, if you're not homophobic anymore you should definitely listen to the song its just a good song that's also quite funny.
  
ok

that is so true. ive met some people that are friendly to me and then hate me just because of my almost nonexistent political beliefs. like they would actually hang out with me and then when they found out what i believed in they just stopped. thats why i dont get into politics anymore
  
I disagree with that, personally. I think it's a rather privileged position to be in such that you can look past others' political beliefs. If someone is hugely anti-feminist, anti-abortion, etc, then their beliefs are actively harming me and many people I care about. Some things I can look past, but others I can't because of how deeply they affect me, personally, and how scary and awful it would be to live in a society where EVERYONE thought that.

Similarly, if I were disabled and constantly struggling with access to medication, needed accessibility tools, and even basic ability to get around, I'd also be HIGHLY uncomfortable around someone who supported initiatives that would take what little support I had away from me.

It's really important to me that my friends want the best for me - and vice versa. I support things that help vulnerable people, help my friends, and help myself because to do otherwise just feels icky. It is like seeing someone you care about trip on the ground and not being willing to help them up because oh, that's against my beliefs. That's wrong, and you need to help them if you care about them.

Political opinions matter.
  
we are talking about the other politics. like trump vs biden 2020.
  
Given the policies that each of those politicians supports, this still matters. For example, say you are a disabled person who relies on the timely delivery of your medication in order to function at an even slightly tolerable level. Trump's policies surrounding the USPS have caused severe delays in the delivery of critical medication because the USPS has been instructed to prioritize more deliveries from Amazon and with more expensive postage options. This may result in you having to ration your medication, resulting in negative side effects, withdrawal, or even death.

That's not even touching on things like insurance and healthcare policies.

I would be very uncomfortable in that situation where I would be encountering immediate, tangible dangers to my livelihood because someone that I knew supported the elected politician who caused these issues.
  
Eriophora I'm with you on this, rest assured, but this is the wrong thread for political debate
  
what happened to the whole introductions thing? this looks more like Touchy Subjects as of now...
  
Here's my two cents, though it may be unpopular :

The kid is only 14. He's obviously still figuring out where he stands and is refining his political viewpoint, given he's changed some of his stances in the past year. Because he hasn't fully solidified where he stands, he's not in a position to judge others because he hasn't figured out all his opinions yet, nor has he absorbed all of the facts. Which is why he's staying neutral in politics for the time being. He hasn't fully figured out who he is politically and therefore has nothing significant to add to the debate.

I'll put it another way : if you started questioning what you believed in, and started exploring other viewpoints but hadn't made a conclusion yet, do you really think you would be in the position to judge others as compatible or not? That feels like expecting a convert to suddenly understand all the scripture as soon as they jump onboard. Political polarization is a slow and already stressful process, especially when confronted with the scary truth that you will certainly anger/alienate people with your ideas. Give the kid some time to actually immerse himself in politics, learn the facts, and figure out who he is and where he stands before you judge him.

Hell, when I was 14, I considered myself a moderate. Almost four years later and now I'm somewhat pro-socialist. People change (especially during their teens) and sometimes still need time to figure out where they stand.

At least, that's what I understood this to be. Hope I'm not putting the words in his mouth.

And if we really want to flesh out this debate further, we should create a new thread like Poods suggested.
  
Mmm. I don't really think this sort of discussion would have been likely to take place in TS, alas, since those DO tend to devolve into pedantry (for better or worse). It's important to challenge ideas like this, ESPECIALLY when someone hasn't yet fully formed their views - these are things they ought to be thinking about while they're working on that. Developing a personal ideology doesn't happen in a vacuum.
