"if twitter had streets, there would have been dancing in them when i deleted my account."

lindsay presented a great defense for an hour... then kept going

"this was an obviously neutral statement."

this is just disingenuous. any normal person would have interpreted her tweet as a dig. this shouldn't even be a point of contention.

how many cancelled people has lindsay ellis defended again? or did she just read the first chapter of jon ronson's "so you've been publicly shamed" and decide she's an expert now?

every single person in fucking history who's been canceled has had to do the same, lindsay

Show thread

Lindsay Ellis "Mask Off" video, cancel culture 

but perhaps i've read lindsay wrong. perhaps the point of her video is not "cancel culture is bad" but rather "cancelling me, a famous woman and victim, is bad."

because you know how that reads in reverse? " i am not a victim, therefore i am a bad person"

Show thread

i don't think i've ever turned on a video so fast as i did when lindsay started her "i'm a victim too therefore i'm a good person" rant

i don't need to have trauma to not be a victim of cancel culture

Show thread

Lindsay Ellis "Mask Off" video, cancel culture 

making a description of trauma a centerpiece for why "i am a decent persona, actually" is frankly not ok. your trauma is not a prop for your anti-cancellation rant.

and, oh yeah, fuck you.

queer spaces 

as a BI white cis man in a "hetero" primary relationship, do i even belong in queer spaces? because i feel like i don't.

in my experience, you're either a Big Account and you get to defend yourself when you get canceled, or you're not a Big Account, and you get to just, get cancelled.

Show thread

Lindsay Ellis "Mask Off" video, cancel culture, personal 

honestly what i'm getting out of this is that i wish i had an audience of 1 million people to address after i got canceled, because i guess maybe then i could have defended myself properly

Lindsay Ellis "Mask Off" video, cancel culture, racism, paternalism 

"There's this incredibly childish dichotomy with the way a lot of people discuss racism, that there are the 'racists' and the 'non-racists.' The two genders. And the way to solve racism is to root out the racists and cast them onto 'racist island,' away from me and mine, the non-racists. One of the 'good ones.'"

"[White people] are interested in black voices when it's in the interest of pwning another white person or white creator whomst they disagree with, but show little interest for issues or advocacy that actually concern black voices in their community independent of said pwnage."

Show thread

Lindsay Ellis "Mask Off" video, cancel culture, racism, paternalism 

"A common refrain of these 'valid criticisms' was that I was ignoring POC voices and talking over POC voices, but the vast, vast majority of the avalanche of angry I was getting was from white people."
