boost if someone calling you a radical leftist is a compliment

@emsenn one i don't really deserve in all honesty, because i sure don't do anything

@emsenn “You ain’t done nothin’ if you ain’t been called a red.”

@emsenn dunno, i feel like it's a pretty low bar for decency

@emsenn Hell, my wife – a classic Liberal feminist about 9 years older than I – unironically called me a "subversive" as I was headed out the door to vote for Nader for the second time in 2004.

I wore that like a badge of honor.

@emsenn The DW, god love her, STILL thinks a vote for Nader was a vote for Bush.

Yeah, I try not to comment too much on that around the DW, either.

@emsenn Someone called an SJW. I had to look it up. And when I did I thought, "I can't think if a higher compliment."

I must be missing something because I don't think the person meant it as a compliment.
