She even likened it to the swastika.
Pulitzer Prize finalist author Rebecca Makkai set off a Twitter storm the other day. Turns out red caps trigger her because God forbid it could say MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN.
A simple red cap causes her heart to do some “weird sh*t.”
Is anyone else made really uncomfortable these days by anyone wearing any kind of red baseball cap? Like, I see one and my heart does weird shit and then I finally realize it only says Titleist or whatever. Maybe don’t wear red caps anymore, normal people?

It’s a HAT. It’s an inanimate object that cannot literally hurt you.
I honestly do not know where to start with this. Then she has the nerve to compare the MAGA hat to the swastika. The swastika symbolizes divinity and spirituality in Indian religions, especially in Hinduism and Buddhism.
Of course, the Nazis changed all of that. In the western world, it symbolizes oppression, terror, and the murder of over 6 million Jews and millions more of those viewed as “undesirables” by the Nazis.
Makkai noted that Hindus do not display the swastika “because it would offend/frighten people.”
If a freaking red cap or MAGA cap frightens you then you need to seek help.
I am not the only one who thinks this way.
Maybe therapy is the answer for you. You are too fragile to handle a hat.

We will continue to wear what we please, because we are normal.
We are not the ones with a mental illness which focuses on apparel choices.

And what did acquainting myself with the source of my terror teach me? That dogs are individuals and actually Dobermans are so sweet a child can do its nails and take it for a walk.

I’ll bet anyone $100 she considers herself a feminist.
I’ve been told feminist are strong women, equal to men, can do anything a man can, they don’t need men telling them anything, etc…
Well, find me a man who has a nervous breakdown at the sight of a hat…

What really bothers me is the fact I can’t wear an article of clothing to exercise a 1A right without wondering if I’m going to be physically/verbally assaulted.
