Secular Humanist/feminist

 I am a secular humanist and a feminist, who believes in intersectionality, or the idea that all oppressions, inequalities and unearned privileges manifest themselves from the same source in society. These beliefs, especially my feminism, have made finding like-minded folk difficult. I find myself increasingly lonely, because people I hang out with tend to react badly to quotations by Carl Sagan, or criticism for telling a "harmless" rape joke. It becomes a bit of a mini-war every day to face the world feeling alone in your challenge against all forms of privilege, since it is an unending battle, but I am confident that I am never truly alone as long as there are other secular humanist feminists.
