@IslandScrubJay if you @ yourself you can laugh at your own posts
You wake up in the morning and walk to your front door. When you open it up you look out at your front lawn to see me, sitting on a couch in front of a tv set while eating from a bag of never ending potato chips. The tv's power cable extends out into the street and off into the distance with no end in sight. I look back and gesture for you to join me, and as you approach you notice that on the tv is live footage of us on the couch, filmed from the perspective of a nearby sewer drain.
When queer people say "Our existence is not political," though technically wrong, what we really mean is "It's not fair that we live in a world where politics has such a big impact on the legitimacy of our existence, while other identity groups have the privilege of being apolitical."
Take too hot for anywhere but here: apoliticality is a privilege.
If you want to "keep politics out of this space" then you live with the conditions that lofty political decisions will have no impact on your life. You don't live a life where the whims of some talking head can determine weather or not you have a place to sleep tomorrow, or when the next time you'll get a meal will be. To be apolitical is to have no concern for the goings-on of the status quo, which means that it benefits you.

Sega (patient artisans): ok, here's a game in 3d where sonic becomes a choo choo train if he holds in his piss for long enough. you must defeat shadow, who is cool and is killing the Bosnian people with his bazooka
nerds (just fucking morons honestly): no, not this! we don't want this!
Sega (world's first volcel company): hey, if you don't like it... make your own game 😎

Biological gamer, staggeringly bad bassist. Sometimes I actually post things. Capitalism is lame and Anarchism is cool.
