    Where the hell are you (broadly speaking), because I’m in Tennessee (70% Trump 2020) and the only Republicans I have to deal with are family and work related.

        I hadn’t realized it was quite that bad on those issues there, but I suppose you might have to grade on a curve.

      I live in rural Georgia and in general I can say almost all of the people around me are pretty conservative, my coworkers even casually say typical Republican shit like how it’s sooo absurd that “white people can’t say the N word but black people can”, or how society has gone to shit with this more than 2 genders nonsense, or how taxes are the reason we’re all poor even though they’re managers being paid slightly above other states’ minimum wage at best (~$15.50/hr) and have to waste an absurd amount of money on healthcare & car stuff, or whatever. Even a lot of the queer people I know, stereotypical with dyed hair and all, say this EXACT same shit.

      I think everywhere outside of the major cities in this state are like this, those few civilized blue parts are the only ones keeping this place from collapsing… having days on my own in Savannah have been some of the best times of my life, I’m so used to be confined to this garbage rural suburbia surrounded by red that I truly envy people who live in cities… I’m planning to move to Chicago and hopefully it’s as good as Savannah, in terms of how nice it is to just walk around the city as well as the local establishments & events.
