Just a random thought, but cancel culture was always a thing. It was just more so women who were getting "cancelled". Now that it's moreso men, there is way more outrage.

Think of the early 2000s (and even late 2000s). All the women who were blacklisted for speaking up when they were being treated inappropriately. All the women with mental health issues being made fun of and shunned. Their careers were ruined and it really wasn't a big issue or discussed much. I'd say those women were basically cancelled in the sense that their careers were ruined and no one would work with them. Now that it's mostly men who's careers are being ruined, there's a lot more outrage and discussion around it. Just a random thought I had after reading another post. EDIT: This was just a random thought that popped into my head and I wrote it quick. If I had more time to flesh it out, I would've definitely included other minorities. Also, I'm not necessarily saying cancel culture is a great thing and death to all men! In fact, I didn't even share my feelings on cancel culture as a whole. I just simply stated that once men started to become more of a target, there was a lot more outrage and discussion surrounding the topic. submitted by /u/Maiden_14 to r/TwoXChromosomes [link] [comments]
