I'm a straight white male, but I can't say I've ever once felt like those attributes caused me to feel left out or hated in leftist communities.

I know damned well that non-white, non-straight, and non-male leftists don't hate me because I'm straight, white or male. They just hate the patriarchy that's mostly run by straight, white males. And it just so happens, that so do I.

Also, being straight, being white, and being male have absolutely no affect on how I see myself as a person. I don't identify with them in any meaningful way, anymore than I identify with being right-handed, or having a short tongue that I can't fold into a U shape. I'd suggest you try to view yourself the same (with the straight part swapped around, of course), and you may just find yourself no longer taking offense to such things.
