It actually frustrates me so much listening to the apparent stupidity of my classmates (I'm open to discussion and i was actually quite right wing myself once) but some people are just plain racist. is it just me or a lot of right people blonde, dumb girls who moan about the smallest things. Think I read somewhere that attractive people are more right wing as they are treated better they don't feel so marginalised like the working class. I know millenials are often accused of being too liberal, but gen z is even more annoying! anyone else relate.

Everyone's entitled to their own opinion, you should learn to respect that and move on.

I haven't met a single person from the generation z age group that is right wing or even somewhat centrist.
All the ones I know sit firmly in the left of the political spectrum, some are also into militant veganism/radical feminism/religion.

Trust me, come to my sociology class.
No one (not even the girls) see the point in feminism, no one likes Marxism, and everyone is mouthing off about too much immigration and when people are asked to think about a political party the answer is either "conservatives" or "ukip"

Lol, “no one likes Marxism”. That’s a popular opinion in any generation. Marxism is cancer.

Just a quick google search tells you that gen z are people born in the mid 90's to the early 2000s... 🤔 So yes I'm sure, as that's 95% of the people I've ever spoken to

Well the people i am talking about are born 2002/2003 so that would constitute early 2000s

On the plus side, nobody seems to be considering the bnp or britain first.
I'm a millennial female, grew up surrounded by supporters of the far left.
Both parents trade unionist revolutionary socialists; with lots of communist, anarchist and militant republican pals.

Well BNP is dead and Britain First doesn't even exist as far as most people are concerned.
I don't like some aspects of feminism, but its so frustrating to see girls my age (15/16) dismiss an ideology that has fought for their rights to vote, and for them to not even bother to get involved in politics

Disillusionment yes, because most of their parents probably read the Daily Mail or The Sun.
Populism isn't a right wing ideology unlike many think, Corbyn is a populist.

Why is it frustrating? How does it affect you what they think? Moreover, why do you think your views are so superior to theirs?

There's right wing populism and left wing populism. The most common 'rise' today is the right wing, I think. I think internet culture has a lot to do with it, too. Very easy to fall into echo chamber forums and the two sides of the political spectrum rarely interact. This has let to a significant growth in the alt right, in my opinion.

Also, whether you're right or left, Gen Zs think politicians have ****ed us over. We're all sort of right, we just need to not blame minorities and LGBT folk whilst pointing the issue out. Hate never helped a situation.

Because their views are uninformed, racist, and homophobic.
Who said my views are superior to theirs?
I used to be much more right wing than I am. I made the same mistake as them to an extent, but they are unintelligent as they do not care about any idelogoy apart from ones that will benefit themselves.

Definitely extreme views are becoming mainstream, you see people joking about nazis. However, the alt right isn't really "conservative" - in fact it basically goes against most Conservative principles.
