Before on Writing SE, I've asked questions about diversity, misogyny, and gay representation in writing. Most responses were positive, but occasionally I was trolled or outright told that my questions were not welcome on Writing SE because they were "political". While the subject matter of some of my questions may align with certain ideologies, I never cited my political leanings in-question.
However, I saw someone else make clear their political affiliations (particularly through bashing a differing ideology) and they had their question modified multiple times to remove the language before having it locked entirely.
The content of the question centered around misogyny and the rejection of femininity in order to be strong, and I have had questions centered around similar topics get upwards of 10k views and they never got locked or modified. However, the only difference was that this user explicitly made their political position known.
With this difference in mind, what is the line that we should not cross on Writing SE? Are questions that are controversial or could be controversial (without having a neon sign pointing to a particular end of the political spectrum) okay?
