It is indeed a sad state of affairs when we are so eager to lump people into a “bigot-box” instead of engaging with them or trying to understand. I too have been called a conservative* online because of opinions I have shared. *actually specifically I’ve been called a Nazi sympathizer, alt-right, a “mansplainer” (though I’m a woman) and a white supremacist. At the end of the day you just have to LOL at the ridiculousness of it and let it roll off your back. You know who you are. It’s not necessary or likely even possible to convince someone who is so gripped by their ideology they cannot see you as an individual. Part of the problem, I believe, is that they no longer see themselves as individuals either.
