Feature, not bug

Dr. Helen observes that female Democrats are the most insular when it comes to politics:

What I find interesting here is that Republican women are the least likely to unfriend someone at 8% meaning that they are more tolerant of other points of view. But then, a Republican woman is generally someone more clearly likely to buck the trend and herd mentality as the majority of women are Democrats. Maybe right-leaning women are more autonomous and don’t need a crowd of people supporting and propping them up constantly.

I have noticed that in general, female Democrats have a harder time when someone disagrees with them and some can get very angry and hurl personal insults or dismiss the dissenter from their group. They seem very much like the group in Mean Girls who treat others with disdain in order to prop themselves up.

I find it easier to simply refuse to be friends with female Democrats in the first place. I don’t tolerate vapid stupidity very well. And if I want lectures, I’ll return to college.
