Assholes: how many kinds are there?[edit]

The nomenclature of the genus asshole is binomial in nature. It is typically only in intimate or conversational contexts that the cognomen "asshole" is applied or asserted without any more definitive, taxonomic modifier, e.g., fascist asshole, racist asshole, sexist asshole, anti-feminist asshole, feminist asshole, MRA asshole, verbose asshole, etc. Thus we might observe that all ideologies seem to possess their own particular brand of asshole. But are these different sets of asshole truly distinct? Or, are we mistaken when we assume the racist, the feminist, the anti-feminist, the socialist, or the capitalist assholes, etc., have nothing in common? And, is being an asshole itself an ideology, invariant over time and fundamental to the understanding of assholes in general? A person could have been a feminist asshole yesterday and be an anti-feminist today, but what are the chances that person is not still an asshole?Ariel31459 (talk) 15:00, 26 June 2017 (UTC)
