You know what is the most incomprehensible and the most discouraging thing about people, who criticize my choice not to date women and label it as the Stockholm syndrome? They try to present reality as though every attraction one experiences ought to be acted upon and converted into a relationship, else one is repressed.
And that’s so not true.
Canonically, I am free to ultimately marry a man (though I’m never going to, but we’ll get into that), and I do get attracted to men every so often. Does it mean that I’m going to date any man, who catches my eye and reciprocates? Of course, not. Here is an incomplete list of the reasons not to get involved:
He is taken
A friend of mine has a crush on him and it would hurt them
A friend of mine used to date him and it would hurt them
A person I know used to date him and he was proven untrustworthy
He disapproves of my religion
He disapproves of my values and political views
I disapprove of his political views, because they are extremely harmful to others
He is prejudiced against my ethnicity
He casually belittles the sufferings I’ve faced due to my medical condition
He casually belittles the sufferings I’ve faced due to my socioeconomic status
The very way he courts me seems unhealthy and suspicious
A long-distance relationship is our sole option and for a variety of reasons it won’t work for one of us or both
(Note that each one of these is a real-life example. I don’t hypothesize. I simply reminisce about crushes, exes or unsuccessful suitors.)
And if not limit my obstacle hunt genderwise, I only have to expand the list for one more point:
She is a woman and so am I
Oh, and here’s a fun fact. Never in my life have I had feelings for a woman, who would be “disqualified” by her gender alone and not by at least one of the deal breakers listed above.
What’s so wrong with me not being with women, tell me again?
a) despite her serious issues wrt foreign policy and transparency, as a student of history i am morally uncomfortable with voting in a way that lets a dictionary-definition fascist come to power.
b) saying she is “just as bad” is grossly dishonest and factually untrue if you look at their side-by-side platforms.
c) her policies are very similar to obama’s in most respects. obama was hailed as a progressive turning point despite his flaws. i’m glad we seem to have moved further left since then, but i find it vastly unhelpful to characterize hillary as the devil for doing essentially what obama does (with some frustrating exceptions for foreign policy–which are *still* more liberal than trump’s positions).
d) imo part of the reason we don’t see this narrative as much in really left-leaning spaces is that we saw a unique candidate in bernie and we’re still dealing with the cognitive bias that left us with. we saw the promised land, etc. now we have returned to more standard choices. platforms like hillary’s didn’t use to scream “evil woman” to most left-leaning voters.
e) hillary: path to citizenship, not closing immigration, lgbtq protections, gun control, right to choose, obamacare, environmental protections, police body cameras, raising the minimum wage. trump: the literal exact opposite of those things
f) i ain’t voting for a best friend who i can trust absolutely and i ain’t voting for a flawless savior figure. i have accepted this, because *no* politician should be trusted that way–this includes bernie and, as has been made obvious very recently, the entire democratic party.
g) i am repulsed by the idea of prioritizing my own desire to vote only for a “pure” candidate over the safety and livelihood of real people in the real world, and i believe–FOR ME PERSONALLY–refusing to vote for hillary because she has issues that are bad (but not so bad that the literal kkk supports her) is morally unacceptable in the face of the alternative.
someanalysis comparing hillary and obama (and finding obama more conservative in some areas)
the spoiler effect–voting for a 3rd party candidate and ending up with the worst one in office
impassioned argument about how bush ended up in office–due to the spoiler effect. (NOTE: this post is especially alarmist but i’m including it due to the useful info it contains. i am trying to avoid sounding like an alarmist myself but, to be frank, i am pretty alarmed!)
case in point: opinion piece highlighting similarities and differences with pre-WWII germany (“Every time things get worse, I do better,” Trump says.) i want to note that you don’t have to think WWIII is about to happen to recognize this rhetoric.
Why do you care what people think?
Are you hooked up to their leash?
You know anklebiters
ate up your personality
Try to remember how it felt
to just make up your own steps
and let anklebiters
chew up and spit out someone else
and fall in love with yourself
Someday you’re gonna be the only one you’ve got
Why you wanna please the world
and leave yourself to drop dead?
Someday you’re gonna be the only one you’ve got

Could you describe a friendship between ENTP and INFJ?
Imagine this: two free magical unicorns meeting in the sky.
Magical unicorn #1 is literally made out of legos with sizzling pop rocks inside. It’s surrounded by bubbles that expel smoke when they pop. This is the INFJ’s unicorn.
Magical unicorn #2 is pizza colored, has a bacon tail, and is throwing up rainbow diamonds, leaving a trail of memes behind it. This is the ENTP’s unicorn.
They meet in the middle (probably closer to the INFJ’s side b/c the ENTP unicorn was flying too fast) in a cloud of Ne awesomeness and INFJ is like yo, cool it down you magical motherfucker (*whispers* i love you). And the ENTP is like here’s your personal space, but after that I CAN SHOW YOU THE WORLD (*cough* because i’m obsessed with you).
