Why SpinnyLiberal? I have been thoroughly addicted to comments sections of news articles. 99% of them are political. I’m obviously liberal. Or a tree hugger, hippie, Socialist/Communist/Marxist, bleeding heart, et. al. I think about politics a lot. More than is healthy, I’m sure. I think about it so much, my head gets “spinny.” Voila. SpinnyLiberal is born.
Most of my friends and family don’t share my passion for politics. Some of them are even Conservative. I don’t really want to get “into it” with them on Facebook. Some of our views are very divergent. Politics and religion can make Facebook friends “Unfriend” you. No one wants that, right?
I still need an outlet to “unspin” my head, though. I usually do it in the comments sections, but I get really annoyed by the replies with no substance. “Idiot.” “Libtard.” “Go F yourself.” I end up replying/verbally smacking. It’s way too negative, I worry about my karma , and my head spins more.
So this is where I will be cutting open parts of my head and bloodletting. Surgical masks required.
