People living in countries with a 2 party system often seem to think that there are only 2 options in general and if you reject one it means you're on the side of the other. I've only ever lived in countries with multi party systems but it's something I see with both Americans and Brits.

doesn't matter how many parties you have if you only have 2 main systems they will stick to, I wouldn't vote Tory anyway, but labour is a no no, the libdems are useless, the greens have lost the plot, last time I voted was for count binface as mayor.

I meant 2 parties that actually matter, should have specified (:. If a party exists but never gets a seat in parliament etc, they could as well not be there. I've lived in Germany, France and the Netherlands all of which have several parties in their parliaments and they have to form coalitions so there isn't a clear "site" to be on, it feels that discussion is more on a spectrum. Of course it doesn't mean they care much for women's rights either...

they are all left or right, and both left and right politics was written by men for men, men born and raised in the patriarchy, its so ingrained its hard to see as the book invisible women shows.
