I wonder how common this particular social issue is? Recently I had a friend that kind of unnerves me on her own. But just last she had pushed this guy on me I don't even know, that like immediatly starts talking about Illuminate and New World Order stuff.

I'm not averse to New Age stuff, I mean I studied UFOs for years. But this guy started divulging personal life details I wont go into here. Like come on dude, we only met just yesterday. Why are you telling me these things?

I'm a trans woman, but that doesn't mean I doesn't sleeze bags thrown on me. I deserve respect like any other woman.

Has anyone else ever had a friend like this?

I know it's a tricky election year, and almost everyone agrees 2016 sucks. But I'm still somewhat furious about this.

You have every right to be upset. It's not cool to push someone on another person, and that individual sharing too much too soon is just creepy. Like he's desperate to be interesting. Or just incapable of social norms that allow people to get to know each other in a comfortable way.

Hasn't happened to me in a long time.

2016 blows. Worried about 2017. Hoping for meteor strike on Capitol January 21st. But that's just me.

When you say "I'm a trans woman" does that mean you started as a man and changed, or vice versa?

That's pretty weird. Sounds like you should get new friends. Hasn't happened to me, but I don't typically hang out with people who I don't know/like very well who would try to foist random weirdos on me. I wouldn't talk to that person anymore, as that story sounds indicative of the original friend having deeper social problems. If she unnerves you, and if she somehow thinks you're interested in oversharing illuminati sleazebag weirdos because you're trans, go with your gut and stop talking to her.

I'm not sure I follow the connection between this story and the election year/2016 thing in the last sentences. But yeah, it's been altogether a shitty year. One of the shittiest.
