There are risks when you join tribes.

However, its ridiculous and people should know how to have some self control.

In the week running up to the Brexit referendum my son and I wore "Vote Leave" T-shirts and attracted a mixture of angry stares and support.
I felt proud 'fronting it' with my lad, and it was his first time of being able to vote for anything.
Tricky one for you, I get your concern but I agree, I've always encouraged my son to stand up for what he believes and never bend over.
Okay, we didn't get physically attacked but the hostility was clear, I actually like fighting though if I can justify it, and I'd defend our right to wear those T-shirts anyday.


I saw a lot of people here in Plymouth with 'Vote Leave' T-shirts on getting all sorts of looks, and people saying nasty things as they walked past. Mostly adults, but they just ignored them and carried on walking.

I would proudly wear a 'Vote Leave' T-shirt. If someone wants to shout abuse, fine, just keep it at that and not get too close.

Haha yes

It's all about power now, he can deadlift 250kg and is aiming for 300kg so he gets noticed by a bigger club.
I felt safe enough wearing our 'vote leave' shirts with him next to me lol
On-topic, it's crazy the amount of violence over politics in the US, I know Britain is divided over Brexit but it seems less angry, even in ATS threads, although we do bicker sometimes.

There are jerks all over so he better be prepared for the onslaught.

You know, a woman should be able to walk around in revealing clothing without getting assaulted.
I would bet that most people would agree.
But is she pushing her luck that she will come across a nutter?

Same situation for your son.
Is he rolling the dice?

Haha yes, that was our attitude as well, don't break that 12" gap of my personal space or 'reasonable force' can be used pre-emptively, UK law is pretty good for that.

Wow that's impressive. My noodle armed boys are no help when it comes to doing any work on the Harley. I have to lifts the back end myself while one of them kicks a railway sleeper and a couple of 2/4s under the engine.
What ya feed him on?


Maybe its cos we are usually more polite and that stems from the knowledge that things are more likely to turn into a fight here? Yanks don't really go for a proper scrap...Too many people with guns I guess, so things are nasty in other ways

It has given you a chance to look at what some will call hypocrisy in a new light. Sometime things are not as straight forward as they seem.

Just curious, do the democrats have their own version/logo/brand equivalent to MAGA?
Make America Socialist Again or something?

The thing is, he can easily out-debate and out-think any opposition in a controlled intellectual political discussion.

Unfortunately, that is not the type confrontation I am concerned about.

Ditto. I bought a "Team Mueller" tee shirt and I'm afraid to wear it.

Don't delude yourself to thinking this crap is one-sided. It's NOT.

He feeds himself since he moved next door, probably 5 chickens and half a pig a day lol

That's a really good point, my mates who have been to the US said they noticed a latent fear of someone grabbing a gun instead of having a good old fashioned fight like men. Aside from #holes like London where they are stabby and shooty, the rest of Britain just use fists. Check any nightclub/barland on a weekend night.

EDIT
Us Brits seem to fight over a pint being spilled, someone looking at their bird, or football, never heard of anyone fighting over politics, except at rallies and protests as you mentioned earlier.

you had her take it off....

just wow

do you control everything she does? Does she let you?

That would be the day my husband made me do anything I did not want to do or stop me from doing what I want... like wear a pussy hat.
But then again he knows he is married to a person able to think for herself and the results if he attempts to control me.

Don't matter how many stupid hats people put on their silly heads.

America will never be great again unless the rest of the world follows suit and also attains such grandeur down to the fact that we exist within a global community and information age.

Simple really.
