People still want reparations for a slavery no one alive today either perpetrated nor suffered. People what special considerations for their "gender" that can change daily or even hourly.

If you want your satire appreciated for what it is, you have to make some effort in written word alone. Otherwise, you're much more likely to be seen as a member of those you attempt to parody. The misquote only added to that perception. If you don't mind being seen as the group you try to parody, don't complain when it happens.

As far as I'm concerned it's miscommunication, a very normal thing on the Internet. Said it before and I'll say it again, I treat the Internet as entertainment. I have fun.

Then like I said, expect to be mischaracterized regularly. If that's fun for you, so be it. It's not anyone's responsibility but your own how effectively you communicate.
