cmv: Cancel Culture does exist. We're just using it wrong.

2021.09.21 12:20 KaidenAlenko1992 cmv: Cancel Culture does exist. We're just using it wrong.

If you refer to every situation where a prominent figure does something wrong and has to face the consequences as cancel culture, of course the term becomes meaningless.
But I put it to you that a lot of people do get "cancelled" unfairly and that's what the term is actually referring to.
Let's look at what Cancel Culture is: it's a form of social ostracism where a person is thrust out of social and/or professional circles because of their reported actions either online or in person.
These actions can be of recent memory: see Roseanne Barr Or they can be from years prior and are dug up: see James Gunn
Both of these scenarios are in essence the same thing: an individual tweeted material deemed offensive by today's standards so as a result faced consequences. In both cases, being fired from their projects.
Are these cancel culture? Roseanne was fired and her show has been cancelled and things have been relatively quiet from her since. James Gunn was rehired and has moved on in his career. Were these victories? Was any progress made? Is that what cancel culture is?
My example of TRUE cancel culture is the musician Winston Marshall from Mumford and Sons.
The guy tweeted about his enjoyment of a book by Andy Ngo and as a result was intensely harrassed online by left wing critics, but not just him, but his bandmates and their families.
Marshall committed no crime, made no -ist or -ic jokes, but tweeted that he liked a book. The result being him leaving social media and Mumford and Sons altogether.
THAT is where the problem with Cancel Culture lies. People strung up for simply saying/doing things that people don't like.
Chris Pratt gets divorced, goes to a specific church and isn't overtly political, so that warrants a crusade on his career? That is what Cancel Culture is.
People need to stop conflating someone being overtly racist to politicians with people having an opinion or just living their lives and not bothering anyone.
The argument against cancel culture's existence would have a lot more weight if they did.

New World is coming out next week. I have a problem in that I have to try out every MMO that comes out.
It seems that they did not release any servers in Korea. I was wondering if anyone else plans on playing this. It would be nice to play with others in the same time zone.

If other moms are out there… I need your help and advice. I recently noticed I was late so I took and test and I’m still not sure if I’m actually pregnant but I have the signs. I crave so much food all the time now, I can’t button my pants. All that fits me right now are stretchy dresses lol. I’m getting huge in my thighs, boobs, butt, and hips. I eat all the time now too… my appetite is pretty big now. Ugh idk I feel so hormonal, hungry, and fat. Mmm… cheese fries. I’ve gained like 5lbs in a month! I’m worried. Anyways should I go through with this pregnancy??

2021.09.21 12:20 Fakeaccount9283 BPD advice

Hi, I don't personally suffer from BPD, at least not that I was diagnosed with it but my partner has been and they have been seeking therapy for it for a long time. I need to vent or need advice on how to move forward.
I love them and will do anything for them. And when they first started getting therapy, and all the resources that I managed to get gave me the advice to not take things they say personally. But I have my own limits to how much I can handle being attacked all the time. When I talk about how I feel and ask them to do something, my tone is off and they have a meltdown. When I don't talk about how I feel cause I'm scared to hell they will melt down, they have another meltdown.
Everything I do is always somehow wrong and they are right. The amount of discomfort I put myself through and boundaries I don't enforce cause they burst out is never acknowledged.
When I do, it's manipulation.
I need some alone time and ask for it, I'm abandoning them.
I want to use my own coping mechanisms to deal with stress so it doesn't bleed into our relationship, I get accused of never saying what I want in the relationship.
I don't do something they want me to do that I feel uncomfortable doing, I'm a monster who will abandon them and hurt them.
I show slight signs of pain or depression, I'm ungrateful to all that they are sacrificing for me.
I've barely ever had a bit of time for myself since we met cause they need me to talk to them every night or they get upset and have another meltdown.
I'm burnt out. I don't feel like I'm me. I hate myself. I hate them for turning me into this. I sacrifice so much but all I ever get is a random burst of anger for not doing as they wanted me to do.
I'm scared that if I break up with them, they will do something to me or my family or to themselves and get me in trouble with the law. I'm taking my way out. I'm done
