Also, generalizations are definitely not truisms. Not everyone who is under 60 and wears a fedora is into "men's rights" and/or Linux. (I hated Linux, it's hard to configure)
I dont get the hat hate. There's no reason to hate a person based upon their choice of headgear. That's quite superficial.
And I have been wearing fedoras for forty years, and I never bring up "a discussion on men's rights or Linux." I think your sample size is too small.
Fedoras are cool. They keep the sun off you face, protecting you from skin cancer. They keep your head worm in the cold and dry in the rain.
Hating hat wearers is like hating people who wear shoes based upon the fact that one of them was a jerk once.
"Fedora hate" is a joke. It's also an internet meme. I don't actually care if anyone wears a fedora, but I also don't think there are very many people that can pull that look off without looking dorky.
