This pretty much sums up life in america these days. Nothing but extremist fanatics on both sides, it is so sad :(


@freemo I assume you're knowledgeable enough to know making brash and broad generalizations about complex systems in something as reductive as a meme so you must have posted this because you thought it was funny. It is, superficially of course. However, I'm often suspicious of these types of memes and behaviors as they're indicative of a troll with no articulate axe to grind; it's rampant on most social media platforms. So I'm not entirely sure what you're trying to bait. The right side of this picture is nothing but a string of ad hominem vitriol unworthy of attention. The left side, however, displays two very egregious problems coming under increased scrutiny in the past 10 or so years. It is not "extremist" to address racism and homophobia. You may not know the extent that word gets bandied about in America and the connotations that it has accreted but it is an inflammatory one meant to fearmonger and distract. And I don't even know if I want to go down the rabbit hole of what is meant by "normal person." But I will say that what is meant by "normal" is nearly meaningless to scientist. I suppose I should now ask: Did you have a specific goal in mind when you posted this meme or was it just something meant to be innocuous?
