More accurately written as "Being an insufferable asshole happened due to the rise of identity politics and pseudoanonymity *convergently."

Edit: yeah we're definitely not talking about the same thing judging by your comments.

Gender is a social construct. Always has been.

The term identity politics may have been used in political discourse since at least the 1970s.[19] The first known written appearance of the term is found in the April 1977 statement of the Black feminist socialist group, Combahee River Collective, which was originally printed in 1979's Capitalist Patriarchy and the Case for Socialist Feminism,[22] later in Home Girls: A Black Feminist Anthology, edited by Barbara Smith, a founding member of the Collective,[23] who have been credited with coining the term.[24][25]

A "Showerthought" is a simple term used to describe the thoughts that pop into your head while you're doing everyday things like taking a shower, driving, or just daydreaming. The best ones are thoughts that many people can relate to and they find something funny or interesting in regular stuff.
