There's a woman named Jessica Pin. As a young woman she was permanently harmed during a cosmetic labiaplasty procedure, and she has made it her mission to advocate for better medical literacy about female sexual anatomy.  A few weeks ago she got into trouble on Twitter with the wokies.  They were angry at her for using "female anatomy" to refer to the clitoris and labia minora.  (These are the same kind of people who get mad if you refer to FGM as FGM, and pretty much the same people who said "I Stand With People In Poland!" in regard to Poland's anti-abortion laws.)  So, the wokies started bombarding her with "eat glass, transphobe!", "educate yourself", "drink bleach, TERF!" and so on, even though she had never been part of the "gender wars" and didn't even know what TERF means.  Referring to female anatomy as female is enough to make you a TERF nowadays.  The wokies also bombarded a couple of podcasts that she had been schedule to speak on with accusations of transphobia, and she was dropped.

I'm sure that a small-time figure being dropped from a couple of minor podcasts is not going to keep anybody up at night, but I think it illustrates the problem.   Anybody who isn't a complete moron can recognize that the wokies attacking Ms Pin are deranged fanatical imbeciles, but the problem isn't whether they're right or wrong, it's that the accusation exists.  If you're the operator of one of those podcasts, the danger to you is that the accusation of transphobia is the only thing that anybody hears about. Anybody who bothered to look into the matter would realize that it was a ridiculous controversy, but for most people all they would see is the surface and what you see on the surface is a bunch of reviews accusing them of "hosting a known transphobe".

Efforts to "cancel" JK Rowling or Joe Rogan are doomed to fail because they're big enough that they can simply ignore whatever "consequences" the wokies try to inflict on them. But Jessica Pin and the small-time podcasts she was dropped from aren't in the same position.

I'm sure she's going to be cancelled straight into a bunch of appearances on FOX News and a lucrative gig with some Koch brothers think tank.

Anyway I looked at her Twitter feed and it's humming along fine with no death threats or any of the other **** you said she's facing haunting her menchies, but I'm glad you still have your eye on what's important and not trivial stuff like state-mandated genital inspections of minors, state efforts to suppress votes and criminalize peaceful protests.

Also TIL that TERFS have their own version of "based and red-pilled" called "peaking". Cult ****.

If wokies are surprised that they elevate relative nobodies into modest celebrities through their idiotic antics, they should look up the "Streisand Effect."

If Ms Pin gets to boost her cause on FOX News or a think tank, I'll consider that a good thing; I think she is doing something worthwhile. If that upsets the wokies, then even better.

I mentioned that this was a few weeks ago, yes?  I'm sure the fake outrage warriors have moved on to some other fake outrage. (I hear they're angry about not enough queer representation on Bluey The Dog.)

but I'm glad you still have your eye on what's important and not trivial stuff like state-mandated genital inspections of minors, state efforts to suppress votes and criminalize peaceful protests.

You're mad that I'm not talking about voter suppression in the Cancel Culture thread?

"Peak trans" is the moment when former liberal feminists reach the breaking point with trans activists. "A trans woman came to my PCOS support group and started policing everybody's language" for example. Sharing your "peak trans" moment used to be an introduction on the Reddit gendercritical group, before Reddit banned them.  Lots of groups have similar things, including the transes (they refer to it as their "egg" hatching-- usually involves jerking off to lesbian p0rn, as I recall).

You might think this would show you how utterly meaningless this incident is and how absurd your obsession with deeply niche social media drama is, but alas.

This stuff is not real life, but when people let it bleed into reality it does nothing but give ammo to right-wingers who would happily throw you into a hole for being queer, but again, you don't seem to have a problem with those bedfellows since nothing is as important as triggering the libs.

Yeah that's a little more important and a little bit more representative of what "cancel culture" actually looks like than some rando getting insulted on Twitter, which you seem to think is a big f**king deal.

Besides there's already a gender culture thread for all your TERFY needs.

We already have threads for those topics. This thread was created, as far as I can tell, for analyzing what "cancel culture" in the current meme-like usage actually means.  A person (however minor) being booted from podcasts (however minor) for provoking the ire of a mob is right on topic. Sorry that makes you mad.

Besides there's already a gender culture thread for all your TERFY needs.

The gender people and their woke allies are among the most enthusiastic proponents of "cancelling" people who say the wrong things, so there's gonna be some crossover bud.

The truth is that you don't like talking about anything that illustrates what a bunch of lunatics the wokies are, right?

Yeah again, we're talking about a phenomenon that exists almost exclusively on social media that usually leaves the cancelled better off than they were than before they got cancelled so forgive me for thinking it's a bunch of trivial bullshit that occupies an unhealthy amount of your time and energy at the expense of real issue while also giving cover to people who, as I said, would love to see you, at minimum, stripped of your rights if not in jail or dead. Get off Twitter and the TERF boards and go for a run or something, Christ.

Meanwhile a bunch of legislators in the States are moving to ban the teaching of "critical race theory" (that is: anything that goes against the narrative that America is the bestests freest and bestest nation ever to grace the planet), you've got the ex VP out here tweeting blatantly contradictory claptrap about cancel culture (shame the Jan. 6 insurrectionists didn't get a chance to "cancel" him), but I want to hear more about how some nobodies on twitter bullied another nobody on twitter so that person was cancelled by not being able to go on a nothing podcast.

How exactly they plan to legislate thought is something I can't imagine.  You can't write a law to exclude concepts, it's not possible.

You can do it in Canada (hate speech) but not in the US.
I can tell how good of a person you are by how you treat the people you disagree with.

The Canadian law talks about the intention of the communication... to engender hate.  How are they going to do this for teaching about racism?

I mean... they could make it illegal to say that there is racism but... Is that what they really want?

Our own government is giving the CRTC the power to regulate social media, but I want to hear more about how Mike Pence's twitter or US highschool curriculum or state legislators in Iowa are the real threats to free speech.
