Get the Terminally Online mug.
A term used to describe a person who cannot engage in carefree fun or interact normally anymore because their views and behaviors have been warped from spending too much time in niche social and political bubbles online. Their entire bodies are tightly clenched all day and they are never really relaxed - they must keep vigil for anyone who fails their purity test so they can sound the alarms and give in to their repressed feral tendencies to burn you at the stake.

Their lives slowly devolve into performatively getting upset in public to bolster their credibility with other terminally online people until they have scared off every normal person in their life.

Though most frequently seen on the political left (where many of them have come to the internet to escape reality due to being emotionally frail and heavily disordered), the right has their own share of terminally online nonsense, usually manifesting as conspiracy theories and a persecution complex.

Debbie: "Have you gotten vaccinated yet?"
