1. Stick by your convictions.
Start by believing in Equality, being liberal, believing that all people deserve equal rights, say so over their own bodies, and the freedom to protest, also make sure to express your certainty that racism is alive and well, don’t forget to defend your gay daughter.
If you really want to cull the herd come up with a witty hashtag that pisses everyone off..say.. something like #admityourprivelege
Self reflection will make people drop like flies. Admitting that you have white privilege is sure to start an argument!
Tell a story about how you’re a white woman who 20 years ago drove a stolen car with expired plates around at three in the morning with a trunk full of meth, passed 10 cops, while freebasing coke, at 82 lbs. Did a drug deal in front of the police station, but we’re somehow not deemed “suspicious” enough to get pulled over.
#2. Admit you’re a tad less privileged by being a female.
Pop off as often as possible about unequal pay, Viagra vs birth control, and the fear you feel on a daily basis.
Complain about rape culture, and how you’re sick of being told to smile.
Better yet tell a story about how sitting at the Trax stop with headphones on reading a book, was somehow an affront to the guy who touched your body without permission to ask what your reading, then called you a cunt because you didn’t want to go down on him before the train arrived.
#3. Call your president a piece of shit.
This is pretty self explanatory. Show repeatedly how depressed and discouraged you are by the state of your country. People will flee! On the plus side you don’t have to hear their bullshit any more.
There are thousands of other ways to minimize a following on social media, these however I’ve found very effective.
Basically when you’re trying to be a decent person by believing all people genuinely are created equal, that others aren’t being treated as such, that politicians are scum, and voicing your frustrations and convictions, you’re sure to lose friends and alienate others.
