Since this is the case, what exactly are you 'fleeing from' in your run to the far right? Equality? Freedom for all? Or just a society that will not accept bigotry, hate and exclusion? Or do you fear people like me having the right to marry, or to have housing, or have a job? What is it that makes you fear the left demanding equality for all, not just some?

Its not the left itself I'm reacting against I'm reacting against what you would call the stupid left. Mostly cause I know what they wish to do and I am rightfully fearful of it. If they had their way we'd be living in a communist hellhole and at best whites and men such as myself would be treated like Jim Crow era blacks and probably be ethnically cleansed at worst. Given the fact that they have been meeting with success in the past few years I feel justified in fearing them. Because of this I have been allying myself with the conservatives since they are the best chance at stopping the stupid left. In short no I'm not fleeing from such ideas, I am in fact on the left myself (I'm a liberal libertarian), I'm fleeing from the stupid left and forging an alliance with the conservatives to do so. I know its not an ideal situation, but the enemy of my enemy is my friend and all.

The point I'm trying to drive home is the mainstream left in this country has changed in recent years and for the worse. They're no longer the freedom and equality for all people they're the authoritarian communist minority supremacist party. They're not like you and me at all they're a whole different beast. They are what I'm fleeing from, not the ideas that you uphold.

Aye, sadly, a fair few of the "Please stop 'helping' our cause?" people are in positions where their voices carry, too.

And I've also seen things that are ostensibly promoting left wing causes but are really not good at it. Coming to mind currently is a YouTube video that was trying to be anti-Nazi and failed so spectacularly that it made me feel more sympathetic to the Nazis; I worry about someone less inclined than me to dislike the Nazis seeing such a thing and following through on that feeling rather than just saying "Wow, this video is bad; what were they thinking?".

On topic of memories, I found interesting software called recoll, so for now I can index my MLP folder and query it for various phrases and keywords, yay!

their gender and race likely doesn't really matter since almost anyone if given that much power would be corrupted by it.

To a point, this is true. Whoever is in power tends to become corrupt - it is a human thing, not just a 'white' thing. All-black African nations are just as corrupt as all-white European ones, and Chinese and asian history is filled with tales of corrupt officials. We would have no cool martial arts movies without corrupt government agents to beat up.

But, that said, while corruption is universal, violence is not. That is mostly a male thing, and the reason is evolutionary biology. All of this is, as said before, not about you, it is about ending unfairness. And right now, in America, unfairness is directed towards women, people of color and sexual minorities... and the people on top doing that evil do happen to be white men. They don't have to be, but they are. The same problems exist in African nations, and in South American nations, and in most nations. The problem is always the men at the top, because men are universally... on top. There are no nations where matriarchy rules. It is always patriarchy, even if the nation is ruled by a woman in charge. The society is still patriarchal.

The reason is simple: men can beat up, rape, and threaten women with their fists, and women cannot beat up men. They are not as physically strong. They don't have the brute animal force, nor do they have the same hyper-aggressive drives. They always lose as a group to fists, and knives and guns and rape.

marriage and divorce. Right now they greatly favor women and should a women choose to divorce she can easily take everything from her husband, and their is little to nothing he can do.

Women almost always want to raise their children, men often do not. Women are almost universally paid less than men for the same jobs, even if they are raising children on their own. Men are the usual cause of divorce, statistically more than women. Men are responsible for most violence against children in marriages. Because of these facts, the law, for centuries, has favored women in divorce. This is where you need to blame conservative, traditional judges. They made these laws to protect women, and have maintained them for the entire existence of the United States.

Perhaps idealistic liberal judges might want to believe everything has changed, somehow, and make divorce law more economically equal. But women would suffer, and children would suffer. In this one case, I side with conservative traditionalists.

Anyway no I'm not sexist and I'm not racist, but given the behavior of those on the far left I do at times feel the pull of the far right due to the human primal instinct of self preservation.

The far right is actively seeking white, male, heterosexual domination of all inferiors, such as women, people of color, and queer people like me. They do not want us equal, they do not want us at all. They make laws that strip protection from us, making us able to be fired, tossed out into the street, unable to adopt, or unable to marry like any citizen, just because of what we are. This is what the far right stands for.

The left stands for equality for all, and the elimination of any one group, sex, or race being dominant. The left believes that everyone should be equal under the law - truly equal with ALL the same rights and protections - and not excluded because some religion or tradition doesn't believe in equality.

Since this is the case, what exactly are you 'fleeing from' in your run to the far right? Equality? Freedom for all? Or just a society that will not accept bigotry, hate and exclusion? Or do you fear people like me having the right to marry, or to have housing, or have a job? What is it that makes you fear the left demanding equality for all, not just some?

From what you just said it seems we've got a problem with a small group of selfish greedy individuals that just happen to be white and male. If thats indeed the case then their gender and race likely doesn't really matter since almost anyone if given that much power would be corrupted by it.

The thing a lot of women and tras women need to understand is that while their are indeed inequalities that favor men in our society their are ones that favor women to the detriment of men and can have as devastating effects on men these day. A good example is the institution of marriage and divorce. Right now they greatly favor women and should a women choose to divorce she can easily take everything from her husband, and their is little to nothing he can do.

My point is that if we want to truly build a world of liberty, we need to stop trying to kill and cast blame on each other and unify. We can't let petty things like race and gender divide us, that only plays into our rich greedy overlords advantage. They want us divided and hating each other. Only if we can put aside our differences and learn to talk to eachother again (And yes this means will have to learn to compromise) can we have any hope of winning against them.

Anyway no I'm not sexist and I'm not racist, but given the behavior of those on the far left I do at times feel the pull of the far right due to the human primal instinct of self preservation. Fortunately my mind is stronger then that and I don't believe their lies. I want a just and fair world as much as you do.

I hope nothing I said here has upset you Chatty. I wasn't sure before, but I feel I can trust you with my honest thoughts on this subject. I know my thoughts and opinions can at times butt heads with yours. Just know that we both want more or less the same thing, even if we view the world differently.

So I can very much believe that someone literally and clearly did tell him he was evil for being male and white.

To answer this, no, no one has ever directly said this to me, but its hard not to notice the behavior of the crazies on the far left and not look on with concern. Especially when society does not seem to punish them for such behavior.
