Cancel Culture's Gotta GO!!!
When social values begin to shift, it's difficult but necessary to grapple with what came before. I think this process is inevitable, but I also think it could be handled with more grace. As the Dalai Lama observed, "The world is drunk on anger." That said, I'm not a member of the groups that were historically disadvantaged, so what I think is irrelevant.
Unfortunately, with Mars in Aries squaring the Capricorn conjunction for the next 6 months, clashes between agitators for change and those upholding the status quo aren't going anywhere for a while.
I think the root of the digital Cancel Culture is the misunderstanding that people have the right to not be offended and we should legislate out any and all possible offenses. It's so childish.
I can name a few (many temporarily only)....
John Kuckian, Onision, Manny Mua, Laura Lee, Jaclyn Hill, James Charles, and now Shane Dawson (whose YouTube channels have all just been demonitized, meaning he just lost ALL his YouTube income).
Chip chip chipping away at our Freedoms. Censorship is offensive to me!
I just can’t fathom the thought process of people that think this is what positive change looks like. Do they not know that they are next in line? It’s so arrogant.
Had to google the English word for it, but it reminds me of Pillory( town square shame-cross) lets shame this person in a way to hide their own sceletons; at least they are not looking at me. Also, all Pr is good Pr, I feel a lot of people are finding ways to put themselves into the conversation by creating their own "redemption arc".
We just have to see each other, pull the rope together.
I am not now or ever apologizing for who I am to the world. Nor will I ever apologize to the world for any mistake I have ever made.
If I made a mistake I have had to personally pay for it already or IT'S COMING. We get right back what we put out there. You make someone feel like shit, you are going to have to feel that same thing at some point.
The Universe sets us all straight.
I am what I am. I had no say in it. I was born to the two people who decided to put me on the planet. How can I apologize for that? My hair color? My eye color? My skin color? I can not.
Cancel me I say... I really DGAF!! And, I would say this on TV live in front of the whole frigging world.
It's stupid. We should not be censored and if we are this is the beginning of a nightmare.
