Context collapse is used to suppress marginalized groups

Liked The Dangers of Context Collapse by fluffyfluffy (

Context collapse is the favorite tool of the alt-right, but it has so many other implications. It’s important to avoid it, and to recognize where context collapse is leading to incorrect beliefs or actions.

This also leads to a vicious cycle where positive LGBT-related content is suppressed or marked as pornographic, which makes it harder to find and also sets up discourse about how LGBT identities are inherently pornographic as well. This then ratchets into ridiculous beliefs like “gay teachers are grooming their students” which then leads to the horror show of the current push towards “Don’t Say Gay” bills.
