Bigfoot and the Big Election…2020 Election mo

I warn you in advance that this is just my thoughts, Remember that I did warn you this blog is like my diary or journal. Okay time to write in this diary…

Dear Diary,

This has been the most emotional year ever. I am someone who does not like conflicts and especially not family fighting. Some of my friends aren’t even speaking anymore! I’m learning things about friends I never knew, so are others it’s traumatizing. I can like and love people I don’t agree with, I love and are related to hunters, and I’m a vegetarian! I don’t need to think exactly like you, I don’t want to think like you, I want to think like me. My best friend and I vote for completely different political parties. I respect her reasons and she respects mine. Despite this year’s insanity we still are besties, we don’t talk about politics. To me it should be private. My parents didn’t say who they voted for so not to influence us or for us to be upset with their choices. Matters of Church and State should be kept private. This year has made being private so hard, but having politics and infighting head to a community I never thought it would? Well that just took me by total surprise, I never saw it coming…

The Bigfoot community had gone political and was about to draw down and split between party lines, no longer just bickering about Woo or Flesh and Blood lines, but democratic and republican! Diary I never would think we would react like this, I thought we were all in this squatching thing together. I was wrong…so wrong.

It started with memes like above. (And I should quickly say I just picked any meme, I’m not sharing my party here), some were funny (on both sides) I can laugh and appreciate a funny meme but I’m learning that not everyone can. Some people got completely caught up in it all and became irate from these memes and that was the beginning of the end diary. We started sharing way to much of ourselves and opinions and the infighting began.

People began having horrible fights in the comments, leaving groups, blocking people, etc. What is happening here diary!?! I thought we were here for Bigfoot. I thought we were the sites and people that others followed to just enjoy Bigfoot and get away from all the chaos.

Now I have to avoid groups or pages and channels too, I need to get away from the anger and tension. I don’t care if you’re a republican or a democrat as long as your Bigfoot research is sound and you keep the sites integrity. Oh diary it’s such a mess, some days I don’t want to open the apps! Politics and Bigfoot clearly doesn’t mix, and why should it? Yes we have the right of freedom of speech but I try on my pages to stay neutral, accept all and not influence and push my views into another. If you are my friend, then you’re my friend. If I like your Bigfoot research then I like your research no matter who you vote for…

Now It’s Election Day and I’m sitting here with heart palpitations because I worry the losing party will freak out, and we will talk even less about Bigfoot, say even more angry things to each other.

Diary can you make all this stop and have us all friends again? Can you make it so we respect each other again. Respect how each other votes and get on with the awesome squatching everyone does? Can we just put everything behind us and move forward? Oh diary I hope so, I truly do…
