Fair or not?

Cancel culture. What is it?

Cancel culture is when someone or a group of people find something that a person did rude or unfair. Then they talk to a certain group of people to want to cancel them which means things like deleting their social media accounts and most of the times lose your job due to loss of customers.

Fair or unfair?

I think that you shouldn't cancel people because of something they have done, I agree that in most cases they should have a punishment or at least a warning but if you cancel someone you can't give them time to reflect on their mistakes. Maybe thought just maybe in very few, very few cases people deserve to get cancelled like if they do something wrong many times and know it, then I think they should get cancelled for a period of time depending on how bad what they have done is.

My opinion.

My opinion on cancel culture is quite unfair because it's basically shutting someone out from life & no one deserves that. No matter how bad a person they should still have a life, yes to have punishments but not to be cancelled. Also people may make something up about someone they dislike for a silly reason- therefore getting them cancelled. People could also say about something that you did many years ago just to get you cancelled, but as many things this could be fair and unfair. Fair because they might not have changed although they have gotten many punishments already; unfair as in your youth you can do silly things that you regret in the future.

In conclusion, I think cancel culture should be cancelled!

    This is a really interesting post and I've noticed you have included quite a few variables (things that can change).

    For example you say:
    In most cases
    Depending on what they have done
    If they do it many times and know it
    When they did it (e.g. in their youth)

    Why do you think it's so hard to draw a line and be black and white on this topic?

    Fair or unfair?
    I think it depends on what they've done too, if it's something from a really long time ago like 10+ years ago they've probably matured from then but if it was something like racial slurs they should be cancelled

      i agree with you however if they have proof that they didn't understand the impact or why it was wrong as a child / teenager then that's fair enough but if they didn't apologize when it gets brang up then yes definitely they deserves to get cancelled.

    Hiya buzzing_grapefruit. I love your post. I believe that cancel culture SHOULD be gone, like you said. You should be very proud of ALL of your posts. Well done.

    I think it depends on how serious their "mistake" was.

    I think that the situation really depends if the person understands what they have done and if they apologise when people accuse them.

    it is unfair because nobody deserves to be ignored because they said something people disagree with

    I think that sometimes cancelling somebody is the right option but only if they have done something that is not appropriate or rude. If not then yes, cancelling someone is not fair and should not be allowed.

    In my opinion cancelling is unfair and doesn't achieve any justice. People should be able to feel free to express and expand on their opinion.

    Like everyone who has commented here,i also don't support cancelling culture.
    There are so many perspectives.
    For example:
    1.A person can feel his guilt and comeback from doing wrong
    2.There are long term punishments which can be replaced instead of cancelling
    3.Cancelling can destroy a person's hope for living.
    Finally,we all do wrong so we all should get chance to comeback.

    A house is built of many bricks. If while making, 1 brick is not kept and thrown away, the building is sure to collapse in the future. There's no human who didn't commit a mistake, not everyone is guilt-free. People can change, people can regret, people can get a better version of themselves after that mistake. I believe everyone deserves a second chance, a second start. Dwayne Johnson one of our most liked actor, in past he used to do roberry and theft because of the circumstances around him. But in the recent years, he acted in Jungle Cruise, Fast and Furious, is a businessman, producer. He changed, he got a better life. But if he became a victim of Cancel Culture, he would've never been able to do the things he is doing now. Everyone is right from there perspectives, circumstances might force them to become bad or commit crimes, but that doesn't mean without putting feet on his show, we can cancel culture. Agreeing with the post, it is indeed unfair. The building of the nation or society will collapse sooner or later due to 'cancel culture'.

    Dear buzzing_grapefruit,
    Your post on - Cancel culture- is really excellent as we know that it's not fair to declare cancel for any mistake directly because that person may have some reasons of his own as none wants to do mistake willingly. And giving another chance to the person will be beneficial as that person will try not to do any mistake further and also as you said one may reflect over the mistake through another chance. If one is cancelled at the first time then the person will only learn that if one does any mistake you must not give another chance and that person will never learn to forgive also. Thus our way of thinking towards anything preciously and the very well Know word _Humanity will go far away from us. So we must give a -Stop! To Cancel Culture.
