Imagine being put on the spot and asked about your political preference in your 2nd ever tutorial that was being recorded live, with a room full of complete strangers? You see, I am a dual citizen both British and American, perhaps the slight American accent gave it away.
Anyway, you can imagine when put on the spot and questioned about what I thought of Trump and who I voted for, I was really uncomfortable and little angry I wont lie. When I said I was conservative and voted for Trump and will again, the room went completely quiet. I asked 'are you all liberal then' and they all responded yes, well, you could of cut through the atmosphere with a knife. I was mortified, it felt like a complete set up to me.
One thing I was always taught in my successful career as a Hairstylist is to NEVER speak about religion, politics or sex with your clients in particular when it comes to these matters especially with the times we are living in being so tumultuous. I just really wasn't expecting that and both students and tutor were speaking about Trump like he was lesser than, it really offended me.
I am a patriot and come from a military background and he will have my vote every time. I do realize I am the minority but hey, I have always gone against the grain and supported the under dog.
Also, how do I know that I am now not being judged now because of this and my worked being marked because of that prejudice?
I guess I will have to wait and see.
