So, these photos were really just a little extra reminder.

It’s not as though I hadn’t mentioned politics before, and I felt like on OKC/POF I had really tried to explain my point in a respectful way.

The one on the left is a little more politically extreme but also serves the purpose of being a “full body photo.” Men are always complaining that women only post selfies and don’t post their full body, and I’m aware I’m not the thinnest girl (I am, according to men who catcall me on the street, “thick”) and I’m not trying to misrepresent what I look like.

I added these two pictures to my profiles: I felt like these photos served a few purposes.

The one on the right is just a hilarious photo (come on, me AND MY DOG are wearing ACLU shirts!!! SHE THINKS SHE’S PEOPLE [bonus points if you get that reference]), while also showing I support the ACLU, and also if I’m being completely honest, my hair looks nice in that photo for once.

I left the paragraph about not wanting to date Trump supporters in there, and just added the two photos and did nothing else.

I stayed off the site unless I got an e-mail about a message, I didn’t look at anyone’s profile unless they messaged me, I avoided being active on the site in really any way unless I got a message.

He had started a new account and messaged me:so to be clear, I told him to leave me alone, and he told me he was going to find me on Facebook. I reached out to POF, both through a report on the site and a Twitter DM, because when I had made my original thread about them they had DMed me.

This was April 19 and as of May 10, he’s still on the site because POF is horrible.This situation, while annoying, inspired me to conduct an experiment.I decided to change my POF photos the same way I had my OKC photos and see what kind of messages I got.I can accept some political differences with a person I’m dating, and normally I wouldn’t really care who you voted for in a presidential election, but my fears and concerns about this upcoming administration go beyond any typical difference of opinion/political party/etc (let’s be serious, Donald Trump is only pretending to be a republican anyway, so this isn’t my way of saying I won’t date republicans).Most of my professional work has been in low income and minority communities so I have strong feelings about how his presidency will impact those populations.I wanted to see what would happen if I basically just existed on the site and didn’t do anything to invite messages my way.
