Since at least 2010, I've been extremely online, and gravitated to both extreme-idpol (feminist, antiracist) and right-wing sites. I'm a longtime Steve Sailer commenter, for example. For awhile I posted at TRS and in some NRx forums and slacks. I started out in my late teens reading fringe political sites because of some fascination with persuasion and argumentation and the gymnastics people perform to rationalize views which are fundamentally emotive or dogmatic. But over time, I developed opinions about the content I was reading. I agreed with some of it, and disagreed with some of it.
I never considered myself a feminist until I'd spent enough time in the online right to realize that the issues Western feminism had ostensibly conquered weren't actually settled. The world's second-largest religion wants to enslave women, and Western elites turn a blind eye. Men get to beat and rape women in the context of MMA and prison, so long as they identify as low-effort trans. And an increasing number of men, including men who agree with me on other issues, viscerally despise women in a way that is disturbing and sad. When I was in school, I never thought "feminism" was necessary -- but when people invoke "feminism" to describe (disparagingly) rights as basic as suffrage or the right to refuse sex, then I'm a feminist. I also find reddit's radfem subs, like PinkPill, a refreshing rejoinder to both (i) the swamps of internet misogyny I've wallowed in for years; and (ii) the weak, pathetic libfem milieus like Jezebel that purport to speak for women while demanding we behave like subrational vain nympho conformist SJW doormats.
Over the years it is not an exaggeration to say I've probably amassed >100 banned Twitter, reddit, and disqus accounts, often with Google Voice phone numbers to match, which I tried to track for awhile in a spreadsheet before giving up. The gentrification and censorship of the internet is probably my #1 political issue, aside from maybe Islamic immigration. Anyways, hello.
