The myths of identity politics literally drive people crazy.

a woman who sees herself as a victim and who sees all men as oppressors will naturally come to believe that she is surrounded by enemies who can do anything they like to her because of their “privilege”.
She will start to interpret everything that any man says or does in the worst possible light because he belongs to an oppressor group and therefore must be evil. The more deeply a person comes to believe in identity politics the more paranoid he or she will become. Hmm | Tim Worstall

She was already crazy. Deeply disturbed at least.

“We must picture hell as a state where everyone is perpetually concerned about his own dignity and advancement, where everyone has a grievance, and where everyone lives with the deadly serious passions of envy, self-importance, and resentment.”
