I think whats going on with Johnny depp/ Amber Heard is a good example. The public is jumping to conclusions and weighing in on punitive damages on both sides

Would that bad idea have been retracted had it not been for cancel culture going on? People, I'm not arguing whether what B&N did was right or wrong, I was just citing it as an example of CC, and TGL, as usual, wanted to be argumentative.

If I go in to a review with a design idea I love and all my colleagues say it's a bad idea and outline the reasons, which I had not fully considered, have I been canceled?

Caught part of a Weinstein story this AM.

He seems to have canceled Mira Sorvino for not wanting to blow him.

I didn’t want to be argumentative. I was pointing out that what happened at Barnes and Nobel is not an example of cancel culture.

didn't know if this was the right thread but tl;dr these personal injury lawyers karen'd tf out when some peaceful protestors in St Louis passed by their mansion on the way to protest at the Mayor's place, so they went outside with their guns to threaten the protestors, now their fb page is getting littered with comments about it

"The notion that a university should protect all of its students from ideas that some of them find offensive is a repudiation of the legacy of Socrates, who described himself as the “gadfly” of the Athenian people. He thought it was his job to sting, to disturb, to question, and thereby to provoke his fellow Athenians to think through their current beliefs, and change the ones they could not defend.35"

not sure this is the best place for it, but i noticed the Oberlin College / bakery case was back in the news... i always thought this one was interesting.

is Oberlin simply refusing to pay regardless of the outcome of multiple appeals?

i'm mostly offended that they made a lesbian of the character you'd most stereotypically think to be the lesbian. if they wanted true representation, should have made Daphne pan or something. velma can be an ace.

I mean, there's only two female characters and one of them is dates Fred.

Is it better to say Daphne is bi/pan/something but never show her acting on it because she's with Fred?
