Our reactions: A question for the forum

Ok, so there have been some posts lately about people assaulting, attacking, etc. other people based upon their politics.


So, I thought I'd ask the forum what they would do in similar situations. Your task is to answer honestly. Not what you'd like to do, or wish you had the guts to do, or what you would do if you were a nicer person.

What you would actually do.

For those who oppose(d) Trump:

You're at the grocery store. A guy comes down your aisle wearing a MAGA hat. What do you do?

For those who oppose(d) Hillary:

You're at the grocery store. A lady comes down your aisle wearing one of those pink vagina hats. What do you do?



I'll go first and my answer is probably boring.

I voted against both, so I'll answer both. Either way, I'd do nothing. I'm passionate about politics, but I don't think random encounters with strangers doing chores is the right time. At least for me.

Absolutely nothing. Free world. 99.9% of the people out there would do nothing.

In DC last summer. I ran into a guy that had a "F*ck Trump" hat on his head.  I shook his hand.

I would just roll my eyes and give her the stink eye.

I wouldn't do anything unless it was supportive. There is enough contempt between us already. I'm looking for ways to minimize rather than increase tribal conflict.

You mean roll your glass eye under your armpit and then give her the stink eye?

Nothing.  Absolutely nothing.

I might smirk.  I might even laugh out loud.

Smiley

I guess might depend on which eye the glass orb came out of...

Moi, I'd probably raise an eyebrow at the MAWA hat wearing guy, and give him a wide berth.

For the lady in the pink vagina hat... I'd ask her if it was a self-portrait, and then run for my life.

Or maybe ask for her phone number.

That one was...a stretch. But I'm still glad you're going this route! Smiley
