There was a twitter thread a couple of weeks ago, from the leftist sphere. It criticized the environment within progressive circles, ending with "... and everyone is itching to eat you alive for social capital".
Even feminist women are creeped out by male feminists, and regularly shit on them. They invented the term "performative woke dudes" since it seemed hypocritical to just blast "male feminists".
The "predator" angle gives this slime too much agency. There would be something admirable in the conscious choice to pursue a public image as a progressive saint to hide one's wicked private life.
Got my Italian mathematicians mixed up yeah
