Ex Dixie chicks were canceled for opposing a war that right wingers supported**___**
Human society and cultural news, studies, and other things of that nature. From linguistics to philosophy to religion to anthropology, if it’s an academic discipline you can most likely put it here.
This NY Times opinion piece about cancel culture has become my “tome” regarding the subject. That thing about Dixie Chicks embodies the thesis number 8: “The right and the left both cancel; it’s just that today’s right is too weak to do it effectively.”
Also American right-wingers complain about the left virtue signaling but they have their own symbols for that. Think about MAGA merchandise and other Trump symbols, “Blue Lives Matter”, “Support our troops” stickers, supporting “traditional values” and so on.
“I am the most oppressed demographic” - gamers, gaymers, men, women, rich people, magats, communists etc
are we so terminally online that we like … became an actual meme of ourselves?
