drastic broadening of the word 'gaslighting,' USPOL 

anyway, that's just the initial transfer of gaslighting into a broader context (as far as I'm aware). the reason people now describe anything they consider disrespectful or rude as 'gaslighting' is the same reason they called everything 'toxic' or 'abusive' or 'problematic'.

that's just what happens to words when they become political polemics anymore. maybe it was always like that, I dunno

@byttyrs we already have a word for organized efforts to get a group of people to doubt everything they think they know: Disinformation
