I saw a post recently where a woman said she felt extremely uncomfortable at a fiber festival because of the political talk. I have ADHD, Depression, and Anxiety Disorder. I feel very uncomfortable in an environment where there is tension. The only tension I’m concerned about is my knitting tension. I have not visited my LYS in a while because, quite frankly, I knit to alleviate anxiety. Also, I am a political scientist. Sometimes I hear comments being made that are misguided or false, but I do not want to have to confront and correct someone. It’s time we realized that not everyone thinks and feels the same as we do no matter how right we think we are. Can we please apply diversity to thought, too?
