    Holy shit, I am so sorry about the Office quote comment. For some reason, when I first read it, I thought it said "my wife and me got an OK Cupid Account," as in you were jointly using it for the shits and giggles.

    Sincerest apologies.

    There's no need to be concerned about my feelings, Trotsky.

    I keep it real.

    I'm also willing to say that the OP either didn't happen, or is very embellished.




    But to address the topic - I hate that shit. I was back home hanging out with a friend of mine at a bar, and he consistently brought up politics ("hurr durr you look like one of them Berkeley students") etc. We got to a point where he was getting frustrated with the conversation and I had to remind him that it was him bringing all of this shit up - not me. I just wanted to drink and catch up about his family and all. But he made everything about Trump. He even tried to accuse me of being anti-second amendment, which went over like a lead balloon and left him with some egg on his face.

    Basically, don't bring it up if you want to have a good time. If someone brings it up with you and won't let it go, well, life isn't always going to be comfortable. Either run away from it or stand up for what you think. There's the options.

    I've committed to having all of my political conversations on Sherdog so that I can just feign ignorance when it comes up in real life as much as possible.

    TS, I believe you. People bring up random terminology all of the time and I'm often at a loss for where they heard this stuff.

    Do you ever call those people out for being sherdog posters when they use random terminology?

    I try not to let anyone know I'm familiar with sherdog and that might blow my cover.

    Damn, I got you good man. You don't even have a comeback. Just like this post and follow me. You will learn about the world and even might learn something about yourself.

    A fucking sentence with words? Someone please think of the children.

    wordy - archaic
    consisting of words.

    I can believe this. It happens.

    I have a strict no politics rule with any stangers. No thanks. Not worth it.

    I would guess that it's used by SJW types 5 to 1 at a minimum. A significant driver is the usage around college environments dominated by SWJ types. I could be wrong but every use that I have heard in person has been from such a source. The conservative equivalent to CIS is "normal."
