The question itself isn't inherently a "gotcha" question and could have offered up some compelling discussion, but its disingenuous application doesn't really allow for any meaningful outcomes. Questions of identity--intelligence, sexuality, religion, culture, race--have historically been slippery ones. And unfortunately, bad actors proposing a prejucided ideology masquerading as the simple answer to a simple question are nothing new. As long as there's money in it, there will be people who seek to profit from sowing discord.
