"Cancel culture"
 
"Cancel culture" actually just refers to corporations cutting ties with risky assets in order to maximize future earnings for the shareholders. You think Disney gives a fuck about D-list actors shitposting about the holocaust? No, but the consumers do, and that cuts into their market share, so they get another D-list actor to protect that ROI as they are bound to do by law.

If you don't want to get "cancelled", maintain your value as a worker on the free market instead of bitching about "liberal censorship" or whatever bullshit excuse you're using to deflect from the fact that your worth to a private firm is inexorably linked to the shitty ideas which you espouse. Is it "cancel culture" if I get fired for standing outside my employer and shouting "X corporation makes shitty products! If you fire me I am being oppressed because first amendment!"?

And that's not even getting into the fact that a significant portion of celebrities that have been "cancelled" are literal rapists.

Conservatives just want to blame the free market for punishing them for having shitty ideas and being shitty people.

Well, ive hated this fucking phrase since i first heard it. Surely much has been written about it. But to me it goes along with the whole, “what, i apologized what more do u want from me,” “can’t we just get past this,” “stop dwelling on the negativity,” etc etc in other words, the language of deflection and escaping accountability that we have seen employed by abusers since the dawn of time and/or feelings

When actually? You know what, ppl are allowed to call out shitty behavior and to spend as much time as they need talking about it and telling their stories, so that they can heal. Once we’ve taken care of the abused, we can worry about whether the abuser should be allowed to have their platform back. Until then? Fuck them, for once, life isn’t all about them!!!

I can remember being 15 on this board and thinking banana was a moron, but not in an avant-garde, Tom Green visionary kind of way. He'd try to come off like he was always trolling, but you could tell that he frequently wasn't.

Netphoria has standards. The consumer deserves a better brand of shitposting. Netphoria is deeply concerned by this post, and condemns the rhetoric contained within this thread. The ideas conveyed are those of the individual boarders, and do not reflect the values of Netphoria. The porn malware and malicious pop-up revenue must flow.

Xander on the Joss Whedon abuse allegations:

If you don’t mind, I’m going to get some spinal surgery tomorrow and heal and come up with a statement that represents me . . . It's a big part of my life, a very emotional part of my life and I want to give it the proper respect and time that it deserves . . . My anus is kinda paralysed and so is my penis, which is weird. I gotta sit down to piss because I don't know if I'm shitting or pissing.
