For a few weeks now, maybe longer, I’ve been thinking I need to remove a couple of people from my friend’s list, as I don’t agree with their politics. A couple of them have been commenting on misogynist posts or others that are equally distasteful.
I’ve known them several years, and over the years I’ve tried to discuss things with them, but their positions have been unassailable by logic.
People say that you shouldn’t create drama by explaining why you’ve unfriended someone or cleaned up your list.
People also say you should stand up to bigots and be clear that you don’t agree with them.
So, what is the right way to approach the problem of people you have on Facebook, whose politics you don’t agree with, who continue to post things that go against your principles?
