Cancel Culture/ Overly Sensitive Society/ Comedians


NoWorries

Recommended Posts

Do you feel cancel culture is ruining todays world in some ways ? Or is it making society better ? Many seem to be offended by being offended for being offended.  Comedians use to be no holds bar and offend everyone and everything? I kinda miss that ..sorry I do …. it can still be funny . Yet in todays society.. hell no!! Eddie Murphy, Andrew Dice Clay, Bob Saget , David Spade, Wayans Brothers , George Carlin, Joan Rivers, etc all would have been cancelled in todays cancel culture. Have people been a bit too sensitive ? Or do you agree with cancel culture?  Do you like this sensitive society ? Do you think freedom of speech 🎤 still exists? Would society cancel you for past posts or actions ?

Gen Z is just too ******* soft and fragile. I get being defensive over racism, but JOKES? It’s so awkward trying to cancel all forms of entertainment from the past when times were different. I keep seeing these fragile *** kids post videos in their dorms about how awkward it is because they share a room with someone else. I look back to when I shared a room and no one blinked twice and did their own thing or hung out once hw was done. This was a few years ago. Certain things and people deserve it, but this constant online policing when they wouldn’t say **** in real life is irritating

I am am against racism . yet agree with you. The sensitivity level is ridiculous. If you look at Britneys situation is clear the world is majorly messed up and corrupt. Yet people are now guilty with out any facts . I do not see this lasting . I see a new generation arising . The get a grip generation.  I think people are naive and coddled too much . Yet the world is beautiful but also a cruel place at times. We all wish the world did not have war and was butterflies and rainbows. Yet its a tough world and I think many need to buy a clue . Freedom of speech is no longer a thing . Neither is bipartisan..its my way or the high way.

I think maybe people were always sensitive but they didn't have an outlet to pour their anger, nonsense out. But in today's world they have social media and they are on it vomiting their guts out. And even though the reactions seem too big and too overwhelming, I don't think the reality is that intense. Mostly keyboard trolls are doing the work, commenting hundreds of times to the same thing, and I blame the ignorant and moronic news outlets for spreading the feelings of individuals on their articles. For instance what is the point of all those news articles adding 'twitter user themoronic******getsoffended2001 commented: 'She seems weird, eeww' kind of nonsense? How come that one person's feelings get relevant and gets exposed to millions who read the article? I think that's the part where people are making a huge deal out of nothing, but unfortunately this stupidity causes stupid results as people gets cancelled. I don't believe the hypes and trends on social media, it's a 'who clicks more' race. It's better to not pay any attention to anyone. And I hope these people who are getting offended by everything gets offended by themselves at some point and cancels themselves and we can finally live in a star wars future where we can be witty and funny without those people who take everything too seriously. 

Having said that, I think people should be considerate of serious situations when they make fun of stuff, it requires a level of intelligence though. Joan Rivers was harsh but she was harsh on herself too and she was never a bully, there is a fine line with it, where everyone is laughing together. But there are bullies and abusers who should be put in place. Interpreting something as offensive and actually having someone saying hateful evil things are different. I am so surprised of some of the stuff people interpret as offensive and it's weird as F. 

I think the worst thing in world is the people who has no f-ing sense of humor, making the world a dull and joyless place, just like themselves, unbearable. Let them rot in their misery. Block, delete, and don't take everything seriously. But more than the offended people, I think media is playing a HUGE role in this cancel culture situation by exposing these people's feelings as if these are facts.

As someone smarter but the same age as me said already-

 

''Zoomers are basically everything that sucks about millennials but dialed up to 11. We at least had a childhood mostly free of the internet and are a little more acclimated to having an actual social life and are capable of separating the internet from the real world. These kids aren't. This **** is literally their entire cultural and social experience, and it is very clearly ******* with their heads. You look at rates of depression and anxiety in zoomers for example and it is through the ******* roof because all of them live such obscenely public lives and are constantly being bombarded with messages from corporate and government entities that they are too young and mentally ****ed to grasp.

We're talking about kids who spent their childhoods on ipads watching youtube videos and browsing 4chan while posting every single waking moment of their lives on social media. Of course they're mentally ****ed up, jaded, and incapable of sincere expressions of emotion. They literally only know how to engage with others through irony because in a world where everything you say or do is immediately vetted by potentially millions of people actual sincerity only gets you mocked as being a cringey jackass.

This generation is going to enter the adult world emotionally castrated and perpetually paranoid.''

I personally blame 3 events- creation of Fb, creation of iphone and creation of Ig.

Imagine the world without apps that force your subconscious to compare your whole life and looks to others and imagine a life without ****ty AI that forces you to be glued to it all day and all night long.

AI- laptops, macbooks, ipads and all that **** should serve you, not vice versa. If you serve AI, you have a problem.

And social media will ruin new generations to extreme. Parents became so lazy, they give a tablet to toddlers instead of teddy bears and balls.

If I haven't spend so much damn time on the internet even though it was tame and more relaxed back in the day I can guarantee you, I'd have better grades and less mental problems.

New generations are sensitive to literally everything due to ****ty parenting and growing up in a virtual world where they have been influenced by social media and bs. No humor, no sarcasm, doxxing, bullying, gore stuff... Honestly, I can't go inside the mindsets of zoomers at all. I can't understand them. But I do feel sorry for them.

 

Kids in the 60s predicted how the extremes of the future we now live in.

 

 

 

Scarily accurate too.

Cancel culture to me is a Buzzfeed article filled with screenshots of cancel tweets with 4-20 likes :demi_lipstick_flirt_red_pink_makeup: 

But I usually find out about "current cancelations" from drama channels :nysassy_miss_ny_ms_new_york_tiffany_pollard_cigarette_smoke_nod: Wish they did summary videos for each week to help me keep up :gagasmile_smirk_lady_pink: *ex, drama and outrage sells, nothing new here.

Same issues  different platforms.

That and the need to post your every single thought  on your social media under your real name. In a world that feeds of doxxing and cancelling people for dummest ****, why would anyone post every single thought on the internet. Cancel culture is huge and easy because (idk why) but people have been posting under their real names for years now.

WHY?

Twitter is super dangerous place to on. I'd say it's as bad as 4chan. TikTok- a heaven for predators and SJW. Ig- fuel to make you feel horrible.

Social media is horrible in every aspect. Cancel culture and snowflakes are just tip of the iceberg of internet bs

It all became this feeling/thoughts dumbster, and it's addictive, people do it without thinking. That's the scary part. Before this, we weren't taking anything this seriously. We used to get offended and then get over it, or we would feel something and get over it, but now it's become this never ending chaos and noise and it's always there, you go back and forth with it and it has the snowball effect, people join and one minor stupid thought gets the headline.

As a person I am trying to find a way to stay out of the social media and internet addiction, because that's something real and very dangerous, thinking that one of the thousands of thoughts we have in our minds in a second gets out by an impulsive addictive finger move (most of which are garbage) gets so much attention to change culture and police people's behaviour. It doesn't make any sense at all. And it's very impulsive and it's triggering. One of the most dangerous human tool I guess. We gotta learn to live without this insanity.

Here's a little clip of Joan Rivers on PC culture:

People have been talking about central-broadening of the Internet but not as much about the effect that has on moderation.
Many social spaces on the Old Internet were isolated from one another and directly moderated by owners/hosts, small teams of user-moderators, and userbase-democracy. What you could say in one space was dictated by the collective morality of these groups, which was often on display within the space. If the users weren't happy there was realistic capacity to call the mods **** and/or leave for greener pastures like lots of exhalers did, esp. during the BJ era which was ****ty af. I left then too.

Now, a far greater number of users are crammed into a smaller number of social outlets. Forums are overshadowed by Fb, Ig, TikToks and Reddits which still have local-scale administration, but the Owner is so far down the line that local user input no longer matters and ultimate morality is straight from The Top, breeding a general Internet culture that administration is not to be questioned, which then bleeds back out to smaller spaces. Add that many spaces which were once small grow to a point that the older style of moderation is difficult to maintain.

So then, so many people being terminally online feeds it back into a world where there is no longer distinct social isolation between people, skewing people entering the Internet deeper into the mindset and creating a feedback loop.
And that's what the **** is wrong with zoomers specifically, though ultimately it's a speeding-up of what travel, transmission, and recording tech has been doing already for millennia.

 

This is why I have no social media except for a very bizarre email that can't be traced to me irl and I'm just on exhale and only some parts of you tube. Exhale is still monitored and I think more than half of us are millenials. We grew up watching South Park and Malcom in the middle- things like that. We understand sarcasm, comedy and humor because we grew up with it. But as we didn't have much or no internet at all as kids- we know, if things go south, we can just log off and that's it. No  fear of getting cancelled, no doxxing- nothing.

And as we were growing up as computers were still developing just like the Internet, most of us know how to stay anonymous. That helps. Because when you log off, you can give 0 ****s what's going on on some forum.

 

I am super picky what I watch and where I go on the internet. Not only because it's addictive and filled with garbage but I really miss the old days- when we were all outside majority of time and came here when we were super bored or done with schools and we were talking to each other without looking at our phones. I'm trying to recreate that. I don't want to die at age idk XX with all my memories being just garbage date of a virtual world.

Cancel culture is part of the Woke ideology that has nothing to do with making this world a better place. They are a minority who have all the access to centers of power, media, money and influence and who are forcing their agenda because "they know what's good for you", just like any other form of totalitarism we went through in History. 

People (on the internet and everywhere) will follow and start being judges themselves since they are brainwashed by big companies to believe in their propaganda...just like 300 years ago the old grandma will yell at the young girl to obey to the traditional values of the Church because she, the grandma, has been brainwashed herself.

 

There is no such things as this is part of  helping people feel better, or protect minority or caring for fragile people. No !

Cancel culture tells Adele she needs to disappear because she had dreadlocks (cultural appropriation blabla ) but they will make you think it's absolutly amazing if she decided to cut her breast and becomes a man....you dry a lock of your hair you're a devil, you cut your b00bs you're an angel. What kind of "better world" is that ? (Nothing against trans people at all I'm just showing how incoherent it is). 

This system is based on hate and division, as always in History, and it comes from powerful rich people, think about it.

The Left, since that's what it's about, took the power after the cultural revolution of 1968 and the 70's. Since then 95% of the elite (in the media etc...) of the Western world are Lefties...and of course with power they became everything they used to hate and they rightfully used to fight...... such as propaganda and mass manipulation, the power of an elite, treating people different based on who they are, and destroying anyone who disagree with them. 

To make it short, the world would be such a better place if people understood that what matters is we can all agree to disagree and that's fine. 

Also a little bit of humour is good for your health.
