Is it normal these days to share extreme personal opinions at work?

Specifically... when interacting with people who have extreme views (social issues, current events). I'm a neutral person. I don't know how to respond when people express extreme opinions while at work. I don't think it's appropriate but I'm also not in a position to say anything. It just makes me uncomfortable and I feel like I'm viewed as a bad person for not responding.

    I just tend to laugh uncomfortably and go back to what I was doing.

    No it's not normal. Nobody gives a fuck about your political opinions. Nobody likes being around people who talk about politics 24/7.

    Answer them with a foreign language or in something like Klingon. Pretend like you don't understand them, and then just walk away laughing.

  • Yeah that's the thing. I don't care what people's beliefs are while at work. I'm just there to work. So probably changing to subject quickly could be best

    Older people are more outspoken on controversial issues than younger people. They come from a generation where it wasn't as divided and having an opinion wasn't gonna get you cancelled. I think also some areas its more acceptable to talk openly about controversial issues.
