You’re an emotional fella. I was just stating a boring rational fact. The same is also true of me for what I’m pegged as.

You’re basically part of my 13 yr old nephew’s memer lunch table at school. He estimates 1/4 are unironic conservatives, 1/4 are ironic conservatives (mocking liberal AND conservative), and the rest are edgyteens (tumblr with bite).

======

So, I’d put you as “ironic conservative”. [that is, not really conservative except for the irony]

=====

I know. But intent is invisible.
So if you and a very conservative is sharing identical memes you come up as very conservative.

=====

Example: Rush Limbaugh 1993 complaining about “Shillary” vs 2015 memer sharing a Shillary meme. The memer is sharing it for the laughs, the 1993 Rush Limbaugh (or the 2016 Alex Jones) seems to actually mean it.

Of course in all those cases, intent is entertainment. (Rush Limbaugh has his niche to get radio listeners, Alex Jones is a conspiracy-entertainer, the memer wants to get likes and make friends).

But then, some people actually unironically believe this stuff which is when things start getting weird.

=======

Like most folks, I think of myself as “just normal”, pretty centered. But enough objective tests shows that nah, I got my biases that I like.

=====

If you’re bored enough, it’s an easy test.
I wasn’t crazy about the profiling I got at the end, but it’s not wrong.
