Kinda wrong for Spanish though.

A follower of Zapata ("Emiliano Zapata", perhaps?) would be "Zapatista",
be it a male or female. "Zapatisto" is a gross error, and it's funny
also :-)

It's common for little children to mistakenly use "-isto" as well as
"-ista" when talking about boys or girls, that's why it's funny, because
it's an infantile mistake.
