j/k. brute is fascinated by how the whole political landscape seems to be shifting these last 5 years. brute thinks he's still pretty much in the same position, but that position used to be considered liberal-libertarian, and now it is considered conservative-libertarian.
Shapiro, who considers himself very conservative:
- wants to legalize pot
- is for gay marriage
- is even relatively reasonable on abortion, saying 20 weeks isn't "really pro-choice" (btw, brute tried to find the exact date/week for abortion cut-offs in the Democratic Platform, but couldn't. their link to "Women's Rights" gave a 404, which brute found hilarious)
- is ok with trans people, just doesn't want to give up the concept of biological sexes
how the fuck is that conservative?
maybe the new generation of conservatives is over those dinosaur ideas like "god hates fags" and "marijuana is the devil's work", and brute will end up being a conservative. *shudders*
