How do you navigate a society that expects you to lean left? Have you ever been met with scrutiny before? Have you ever been or felt excluded? Asking as a slighty right-leaning lesbian because I feel like society has categorized us into "real' and "fake" based on political leanings.

As has been said many times before on Ovarit, I'm a political orphan. Republicans want to oppress and subjugate me, Democrats want to buy/sell (same thing?) me. Republicans want to force me back into the kitchen, Democrats want to force gender penis on me. They can all go fuck themselves.

Political belief can go beyond the binary of electoralism. If you generally have left-leaning beliefs, you don't need to identify as a democrat. You can engage in political activism in other ways, and network with others who have gone beyond the American political binary. In my opinion, radfems need to thrive in these outsider political groups, because as you've pointed out, electoralism hasn't really left any room for radfems.
