To ask people not to harass me because of what I voted

I voted Leave. I do not regret it. People have been harassing me because of it, saying stuff like "you shithead you just want to ruin our country" or "how dumb are you, if we leave ____ will happen". I don't want this to turn into a leave vs remain debate, and yes i do realise the referendum was more than a week ago. I just want to see if IABU to tell people to stop being mean because of what i voted.

I stupidly voted leave too, and deserve all the negative criticism thrown at me.

You could just keep it to yourself? Lots of people are discrete (in real life) about who they vote for etc
Democracy is a privilege and you have as much right to exercise this as anyone else smile

Can you ask this to go in the Referendum Topic?

Nothing personal, but this has been done to death

If you're sensitive, why tell anyone how you voted?

LurkingHusband Fri 01-Jul-16 17:34:03

God thats's a tricky one.

(thinks)

here's an idea ...

why not

(a) not tell people how you voted ?
(b) tell people you didn't vote
(c) lie ?

Good for you.

Maybe if you stop banging on about what you voted, people will stop "harassing" you.

If you want peace from it, why post YET ANOTHER goady thread on AIBU? There's a n EU referendum section you know.

Don't tell anyone then. You can't blame people for having opinions, it is not 'mean'.

NotYoda Fri 01-Jul-16 17:35:10

I also think you are being inflammatory (and not doing a terribly good job of hiding it with your user name), so.....

DancingDinosaur Fri 01-Jul-16 17:36:16

You shithead

couldn't resist, sorry

If you can't put your money where your mouth is then tough luck duck.

Well surely you have logical, well rounded, researched reasons for your vote? Just reply with those.

GoodLoveShinesBrightly Fri 01-Jul-16 17:37:42

Stop telling people how you voted would be an easy way to solve this.

StealthPolarBear Fri 01-Jul-16 17:37:52

Well done op

DameDiazepamTheDramaQueen Fri 01-Jul-16 17:38:35

Don't tell anyone.

Misnomer Fri 01-Jul-16 17:40:02

How do people know how you voted?

Whathaveilost Fri 01-Jul-16 17:41:31

Me and my best friend have just had a catch up. We voted differently. We had a natter about politics, kids, gigs, cinema, and food.

No need to fall out. We voted for what we thought was the best with the knowledge we had.

stop being mean

Are you really old enough to vote?

Madbengalmum Fri 01-Jul-16 17:45:04

A. Nobody knows how the brexit will play out, its been one week. unless they have a crystal ball?
B. Dont discuss your vote with anyone.

glasgowlass Fri 01-Jul-16 17:47:11

I do find it ironic that with a username IDoWhatTheFuckILike that you're complaining of people being 'mean' to you. How on earth do people know which way you voted? You must have told them which opens up the conversation to debate. If you vote then you need to have conviction in that vote.
Touch of the GFery about this thread I reckon.

Maybe other people do what the fuck they like too, and if they want to harass goady fuckers they will.

What do want people to do, applaud you?

YourPerception Fri 01-Jul-16 17:53:36

Avoid the people who are taking out their grief in you until they sort out their stuff.

Are you Boris Johnson?

FaFoutis Fri 01-Jul-16 18:14:08

I don't think Boris voted leave.
