It is 100% cancel culture. "Evidence" from social media is used by an online horde to rally hate towards other people, criticizing assumed behavior as the horde connects dots from their smart phones or computer chair, about events they never attended and people they never met. This echo chamber builds into a feverish pitch like a witch hunt. Guilt by association is acceptable by the horde, malevolence is assumed, and no point on the timeline of history is out-of-bounds for the hordes judgement. Any gaps in rationality by the prosecution, are filled in with emotional outrage.
Some of the accused are likely assholes, who probably did some of these claimed things. But I'm just as disgusted by the group behavior of the online horde, some of them are assholes too, but too righteous to notice.
Yes, reserve your anger for those saying you shouldn't harass women, not for those that harassed women. Sensible.
You are guessing at my emotional state and what I think about women and victims. But what I find most fascinating is your idea that anger should be reserved and applied to other people. Makes sense.
If I cannot critique those that seek changes to the system, and the processes and tools they use to achieve change, then this 'new' system is a lot like the last.
Reread your post. It comes across as a rant against people angry that they've been supporting a company doing these things.
You should seek to, y'know, change the system and stop sexual harassment, not change the system and stop people trying to change the system and stop sexual harassment.
And if you're angry at how the system is being changed, or "critiquing," again, why not spend more of your words (and you used a decent amount) on how much worse the system that needs to be changed is than the methods of seeking it, or lament that this has happened for decades and nothing worked to change it prior to this.
It's like how people whined about how MLK sought change, only, decades later, for that same type of people to be wishing we had that method. Ultimately, just seems some people dislike change.
