I have been called a feminist, elitist libtard.

If opposing Trumps's racist, sexist, criminal and misogynistic policies make me a feminist, elitist libtard, then that is a title I will wear with pride.

Yes, I am educated. Yes, I am a lawyer. Yes, I am against racism. Yes I support gay rights. Yes, I am pro-choice. Yes I am pro-immigrant. And yes, I am against endless wars. If that qualifies me to be a true feminist, elitist libtard, so be it.

I would rather that than be classified as a racist, sexist, homophobic Trump supporter. I believe Trump supporters are either very badly informed, narrow-minded or misguided, And that is giving them the benefit of the doubt.

4. Thank you.

Had to get that off my chest. I have way to many pro-Trumpers around here who drive me nuts.

12. "Libtard" is a word used by people who, deep down inside, know they aren't very smart.

So they over-compensate by bullying like a 9 year old.

Thanks for sometimes engaging with these people. They just make me want to

13. I have never heard the word "libtard" spoken.

I only ever see it here, oddly.

15. Go to the "Comments" section of any ...

... rural or red state on-line news article about a political issue. Itís in every third post.

20. Spend some time on social media.

Specifically, the comments sections of news stories on sites like the NYT. They're loaded with doofuses who think it's the height of debate.

21. Yup.

I find it funny when they try to call me an elitist.

Yes, I did go to college, but....
I'm now disabled, no work, will be on the street (if something doesn't happen soon), I am no way an elitist.
But, to them, if you are Democrat, you are an elitist.

22. So true.

If you simply support progressive issues or causes you must be an elitist.
