A few weeks ago, I wrote an article about something Tomi Lahren said. The article wasn’t about her, but about some particularly obnoxious anti-LGBTQ idea she was spouting.

It was, bluntly, a fascist idea.

I had never heard of her before I wrote that article, but because she pinged my consciousness, I’ve paid more attention since.

I can’t believe the blatantly cruel, misogynistic, toxic ideas she tweets and otherwise publishes.

Her Twitter profile almost seems a parody of a male white supremacist fascist.

I guess she must consider herself a provocateur. That probably pays well. I think “Barbie fascist” fits perfectly. A brilliant coinage.

I’m not so sure I should be using it myself, being a man, but I certainly hope it catches on among women.
