I mostly agree with you in your sentiment. I too dont feel welcome among liberals even though I feel that I mostly identify with liberal values. It feels like in order to be liberal in Seattle you have to hit all these mandatory check boxes and if you miss even one you automatically get thought of as a dirty conservative and have values you dont believe in assigned to you.

Like guns? Well too bad you cant be a liberal, you must hate women, gays, be against abortion and want everyone to convert to Christianity. Its like shit really? Cant I just like guns?
