Bookmarked On Teen Vogue and the “Cancel Culture” Hell We Can’t Seem to Escape by Clio Chang (The New Republic)

Condé Nast set Alexi McCammond and the magazine’s staff up to fail. And yet it’s seemingly evaded any responsibility for its decisions.

My interpretation of this essay: Cancel culture is a straw man argument to distract from the true challenge with free speech, that it’s much harder for the little people, the marginalized people, to get heard and taken seriously. That it’s an excuse to validate the continued suppression of those voices from holding those in positions of power accountable.
