I wanted to know if there's a word for a sneaky tactic involving falsely calling yourself a person of the opposite side to your actual viewpoint (perhaps in an anonymous setting) to use as a weapon to discredit that opposite side's argument.
Eg. Someone commenting online anonymously on some relevant message board "As a radical feminist myself, I think that the gender pay gap is a myth" when they are actually secretly a misogynist portraying themselves as a radical feminist.
Sorry if I mistagged this. It's my first post.
