I am curious to see the experience of people who are often seen as outsiders to academia and philosophy in particular. Could someone explain to me what is it like to be a(n outspoken) political conservative, Republican, Randian, veteran, or devout religious person, etc in philosophy? A safe forum for them to air their experiences could probably also be beneficial to all of us.

Neat idea, x. I hope some such people participate!

A further proposal (perhaps Chike Jeffers may consider it?): "What it is like to focus on non-mainstream philosophy", that is, how it feels to read people no one reads/to be considered less interesting just because one does not publish on the "latest" topics.
