Politics confuse me, and I’m almost completely unaffiliated.
I can’t say much on abortion, I don’t know when meaningful life begins for a fetus really; I do feel that a woman is free to do what she wants with her body, but an unborn child isn’t exactly her body. I think that in instances of rape or incest, or if competent medical science deems the mother’s life at severe risk, I would say it’s completely justifiable. I’m also an advocate of birth control, which is a FAR better option.
I’m still neutral on gay marriage, I have a number of family members and friends who are on either side of the argument and I catch a lot of their flak and I always hate it. It’s not a subject I like to talk about because it’s so sensitive, and it’s usually them trying to convince me as opposed to informing me. I made the mistake of bringing it up on tumblr once. Won’t happen again.
