How do you identify politically?
The contributors on this blog have decided to turn Question of the Week into Question of the Month. Welcome to our first Question of the Month! New questions will be posted on a Tuesday in the middle of the month.
I live in Canada so I say I am further left than our left wing political parties: the liberals, Green, and NDP. I also call myself a feminist, but there are so many ways to be feminist (many of which I do not agree with). I go back and forth between thinking being left-leaning and feminism is popular in ace spaces and thinking being apolitical or neutral is popular in ace spaces. Maybe there is much of both? When there is time for nuance and context I describe myself as a vegan intersectional feminist. To me that means my lifestyle and the political activism I do is helping build a future that imagines freedom from oppression for all human and nonhuman animals on a societal and individual level.
