Member of the Minnesota Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party, Betsy Hodges, who is a former mayor of Minneapolis and state lawmaker, was out on the town recently and noticed something troubling:
We have been in this restaurant/bar for over an hour. They’re playing classic rock, mostly ‘70s. Their music service has yet to play a single woman’s voice – not even a duet. Not even *backup*. #JustNoticing

Do some people know how to party, or what?

And on, and on…
Imagine living your life keeping track of meaningless garbage like this because you’re dying for evidence of your own non-existent oppression. Pathetic. https://t.co/hyGznqia7q

#JustNoticing your life must be exhausting looking for ridiculous, inconsequential things to be triggered about.

Hodges wasn’t thrilled with the attention the above tweet received vs. her views on other issues:
I tweeted about sane gun laws and elections and the trolls were pretty quiet. *This* tweet, though, got the trolls going. If they support sane gun laws, though, then I can live with their significant, though perplexing, tenderness around naming the maleness of most classic rock. https://t.co/FgmIsGTTOs

People pointing and laughing aren’t necessarily “trolls,” are they?
This is a mediocre attempt at walking back the estrogen that pollutes your brain to the point you whine about men singing. https://t.co/t8rUurb3lt

Concluding that your tweet was insipid does not make one a troll. You're not very good at this mefia, are you? https://t.co/giljawhGts

Disagreeing with you does not equal trolling?

At least she didn’t accuse everybody who responded of being a Russian bot.
