I have a recurring experience on Twitter that goes something like this:

  1. I say something vaguely political, or reflective of my politics (which are progressive, and I’m a Democrat).
  2. Someone with right wing politics — overwhelmingly these people are men — respond with some variation of a dismissal predicated upon the fact that I’m a woke lib, a category five feminazi, or whatever.
