In my dream, I was with a bunch of women of different sizes and ethnicities all of us piled into cars together to get to this Applebees. And we were all wearing really slick and professional pantsuits of various striking jeweltone colors. It was stressful being in public under this banner but I had so much fun just being with women unapologetically. And it was a surprisingly good meal for Applebees 🤪

Also props to you all for carpooling even if it was all in my head hahahahaha.

Aww, this is great. I met a radfem from my state from here and we meet up periodically! She is super and I'm glad we met!

How’d you go about making the connection? I’d love to meet another genuine feminist.

I sent her a DM after seeing her comment about our state. Besides radical feminism, we happen to share some similar interests, so we chatted a bit over messages, then met up in a public place. Don't be scared of putting yourself out there, but be smart about meeting strangers from the internet.

*2nd edit: sometimes I wear my "woman: adult human female" shirt when out and about but so far no one has said anything 🤷‍♀️

I love the odd details. Jewel toned suits and Applebees 😂

This makes me want to buy a jewel tone pantsuit so you all will recognize me IRL :)

I’ve often thought how cool it would be to meet Ovarites in person. Never did I picture that meeting at Applebees! Dreams are funny.

Sometimes when I'm out and about going through my day I wonder who else is radfemm-y and if anyone else is on this site. Especially when I'm with a group of mostly women.

Look for dinosaurs and suffragettes colours or pins or ribbons. I spot many women in my area of the UK using these as an obvious symbol. But then I know a bunch here anyways, just friends from before this or from the early stop self ID meets. And friends who definitely aren’t radfem are still def against gender ideology, so I can rant to them.

One of my kids teachers, (who clearly agreed subtly with my arguments against gender ideology teaching in the school even when the head teacher ignored reason) gave my kid a purple & green dinosaur cuddly as her leaving present.

Get yourself one of the Dino charms on a suffragette ribbon to wear, or similar, and you’ll find other radfems or GCers come to you.

I have never heard of a dinosaur symbol… how?

Lammy (I think) claimed GC women were like dinosaurs trying to cling onto our rights. Then GC women at protests started wearing Dino costumes, and it became a core staple. (In the UK at least)

Articles on us dino GC women

There’s a whole bunch of threads/tweets etc on dino spotting.

I have this fantasy that a fellow Ovarette catches me checking the site in public and we become friends

I read it obviously in public. And mumsnet. Or other GC sites. So anyone can see if they wish.

And my girls ask about what I’m reading if we are In Starbucks or somewhere. So I talk to them about it publicly, age appropriate version. So anyone can hear. I’ve had a few mums in the playground approach because of that. Ime, more people are anti gender ideology than for it.

But that’s possibly because I put all those for it in the stupid as fuck box in my brain until they grow up, face reality and are allowed out of the bad box.

That sounds amazing. I wish it could happen in real life. Except, no Applebees please.
