"Being Cancelled"

John Scalzi wrote this piece to break down what 'cancel culture' actually refers to. It's a long read, but here's the key points:

  1. Being ‘canceled’ basically means learning that you’re replaceable
  2. ‘Canceling’ is certain people discovering that capitalism doesn’t love them as much anymore
  3. “Being Cancelled” doesn’t mean you never work, it means you work in the minor leagues
  4. When you’re privileged, consequence feels like oppression
  5. The age of (unmediated) celebrity social media is (probably) coming to an end.
