If I did nothing else today...|
At least you didn't put your foot in your mouth amongst an audience where it actually made a difference what you said. No damage done, and you're wiser for free!

I even figured out what Strawfeminist means...

Aha! I was waiting for someone to ask...
Near as I can tell, a Strawfeminist is an argument (or person arguing) that creates a straw man
feminist caricature - of all feminists or one feminist, or a specific subgroup of feminists and what they believe - and then argues against that caricature instead of against an actual stance that someone real is proposing.
Logically when used as a noun referring to a person, "Strawfeminist" ought to refer to the hypothetical feminist caricature being used for rhetorical gains, but so far as I saw the usage was to accuse someone of being
a strawfeminist, in other words a person who uses strawfeminist arguments.
