pointed out. There's a logical connection.
However, fedoras as a symbol for misogyny (i.e. anti-feminism), atheism, etc. is just a negative branding effort. Fedoras are recognized as a symbol of low status, and by attaching that image to "thing I don't like," I can make "thing I don't like" look lower status. After all, if they're low status, who's going to listen to them? You don't even need
to refute their arguments...Of course, "lel fedora" isn't the only status attack. "Feminist --> ugly/fat" is painfully common.
