I've been hearing people say that the broad left's various political identities are mostly just different stylings and have no practical meaning for a marginalized left. It seems to come mostly from the chapos and, whatever their value as polemicists, this is wrong. While I agree the factoralism is mostly silly, political difference is still essential because building up a young left is a political question. Also, the dismissal of it tends to come from dominant corners of any coalition.
Activism and emotional labor.
A potentially wrong headed pet peeve of mine has become the trend of leftists on podcasts or social media undercutting call to actions with 'but you know, don't put too much emotional labor in and take care of yourself too'. It's not that it is unimportant, it's extremely important especially in activist spaces, but, in that decontextualized framing, it seems unnecessary and at best enabling of our worst habits at the cost of people who don't get that choice.
