I am not!  You're picking on me!  I feel persecuted! Take that back!

Rick and Morty is an edgy comedy, I'd imagine his previous works are in the same vein. The problem with that is you can't go back and retroactively get offended by something that you laughed at years ago but now you're upset about it since society has changes in the interim. The greatest comics walk right up to the edge but don't go over, but time changes and with that so do the edges. Take this skit for example, there's no way that some people wouldn't get offended now and I still think it's one of the funniest things I've ever seen on TV.

Sorry guys, this goes both ways. When someone has apologized for something, but you still don't like them, it's all "Cancel! Cancel!", all the time. Same if it happened long in the past. Don't like it? Then don't be all gung ho about supporting the stupid shiat in the first place.

Does anyone remember the original cancel culture?
Which person from this still got "cancelled", and which one is the pope?

Seems like most people's "problem" with this whole phenomenon is that liberals are allowed to have morals and that's just not fair to the rape-normalizers, pedophiles, racists, and racism-normalizers in the world.

Like how dare you connect the actions and words of a person to a person! That's not fair!

Frederf: Murkanen: Frederf: germ78: Has "Cancel Culture" even successfully cancelled anything?

Some high school kids have harassed another kid until she killed herself. Does that count?

As bullying?  Yes.

As "cancel culture"?  No.

What's the difference?


The main difference is that bullying is real and "cancel culture" is conservative persecution fantasy.

Beyond that, "cancel culture" insofar as the conservatives are convinced it is a real thing, is about responding to your shiatty behaviour and people saying they don't want to be associated with you anymore.

Of course it is.

What are they going to do, hold a gun to his email and say, "ADDRESS THIS!"

Do you people who have done questionable things can just wave off criticism by saying I'm not interested in revisiting it?

Yes.

Everyone else can visit all they want. Write a book even.

You can't make people talk about things unless they're legally compelled to in court.

Not sure what's complicated about that.

feels > realz

In Twitter cancel culture, the outrage is everything. It's purely performative, but like any live show, the actors feed off the audience. People aren't allowed to grow and evolve, they are exactly the way they were the moment they said a stupid thing.


There is no such thing as "cancel culture".  The worst these people get is some bad press before they going on with their lives making oodles of money.

I should clarify, lest I make my friend look bad.
