Connor said he wanted me to clarify by saying he had bigger things to worry about, he meant in terms of actual sexist issues as opposed to the numbered ratio of white people to minorities, which he always felt was a really shallow argument either for or against diverse representation, he was more concerned about how they were actually represented, as opposed to the numbers.

And even in that regard, pop culture is one of the last of his worries. He said it's like the argument if it's between two consenting adults and it's not impeding on your life, what business is it of yours? And also that to think of it that way is like the argument that video games make people violent, it's pretty much the same vein.

Again, I'm not as political as Connor, but I'm in the same vein of him that unless people ask for my help, I stay out of their business. Something our dad taught us. It's kind've a very Southern sensibility, which is why I grew up not really hating the south. People in New England or my cousins on the West Coast seem to think the south is full of racists, but I noticed it tends to be more of people like our dad whose attitude towards strangers is you stick with your own business, they stick with theirs. It's less racism and more less political activists sometimes. I'm not saying racists don't exist or anything, just that, y'know, assuming such things isn't that cool either.

Connor says that sometimes talking with his friends he feels like he's part of a dictator regime where they're talking about how to censor things they feel is wrong or telling people what's a better way for them to live, to him that's the politics, instead of looking at the individual's moral compass or desire, which is more of a humanist thing to worry about.

I don't really care to talk about the nuances of politics in that field, how far is too far? Etc. I'm more like our dad. I don't know if that's a thing people end up growing up with or a cultural thing.

I wouldn't have too much of an opinion on any matters such as these. But I wouldn't mind listening to my friends bitch their faces off... I do it all the time anyways when they're going through bad times in a relationship. Why do they run to the friend who's been single for several years? I have no clue... :/

@yaoi4evandnevayuri: Hm, not really sure what you're referring to but I think, when it comes to friends, the whole point of being friendship is to be there for the good times and bad.

Haha, I have no idea as well. I am extremely uncomfortable whenever my friends talk about their relationship, good and bad. I don't mind but it ends up receding into silence because I have nothing to say, haha.
