Thank you for your explaination.Pseudonym said:Well, those words don't mean anything exactly, they only mean things vaguely. So, from someone who most people would regard as left wing: in general left means wanting better protections for workers, supporting the rights of women, religious and racial minorities, LGBTQIA people, etc, decriminalising certain drugs, police acountability.SweetShark said:Ok, I got lost.
What do you mean with right and left wing exactly?
Right means wanting freedom for corporations and low taxes so that those who own property can do what they like with it and the people who depend on it, wanting less immigration, wanting though policing. Moderate rightwingers often nominally support the rights of women, minorities etc too but don't believe much needs to be done in that regard.
On the issue of trans people the leftwing positions include that they exist, that that's fine, that once you transition you can become another gender, that they face a lot of discrimination and violence and that that's bad, that public bathrooms should be genderneutral so that people are less likely to beat trans people up for using the wrong bathroom etc. More rightwing people tend to deny some or all of these things.
Some of the conversation here has turned to a talking point amongst certain rightwingers that they have funnier memes and leftwingers disagreeing with that. If that sounds like a discussion with bizarrely low stakes to you and something you wouldn't really care about, bravo, you have basic common sense.
Umm, I didn't expected that it will turn like this. That all.
As I said, I don't even knew that I posted was a part of a joke meme...
