    Dude, you're just a privileged rich white male who doesn't care about the working classes and the rights and lives of millions of people! You either simply don't know how utterly hurtful and hateful your words are, or even worse, you know but don't care about the literal anguish and pain you are causing as you side with evil.

    Mind-blowing that she even needed to make that speech. What is wrong with people?

    Hey. I have never watched a football game in the fancy owners box with a mass-murdering genocidal madman like Ellen did. So don't you judge me!

    We all need to be outraged that Greta, that annoying AF girl from Sweden, did not win the Nobel Peace Prize which she in no way deserved.

    Obama speaks out against cancel culture, outrage culture, and being woke. Good for him.

    Jonathan Haidt is definitely one of my favorite social psychologists of this generation.

    Lots of great quotes in there.

    The U.S. Constitution was an exercise in intelligent design. The Founding Fathers knew that most previous democracies had been unstable and short-lived. But they were excellent psychologists, and they strove to create institutions and procedures that would work with human nature to resist the forces that had torn apart so many other attempts at self-governance.
    The social psychologist Mark Leary coined the term sociometer to describe the inner mental gauge that tells us, moment by moment, how we’re doing in the eyes of others. We don’t really need self-esteem, Leary argued; rather, the evolutionary imperative is to get others to see us as desirable partners for various kinds of relationships. Social media, with its displays of likes, friends, followers, and retweets, has pulled our sociometers out of our private thoughts and posted them for all to see.

    I haven't listened to the actual podcast yet, but I actually love the description of how this was handled. Instead of engaging in the social media outrage culture, the guy used it as an opportunity to create a dialogue about why what was done was problematic.

    Looks like the tweet he quoted has gone private.

    the tweet was a question posted @boygeorge, "do you know what the f* pronouns are?" or something very similar.

    There seems to be a backlash of at least a few pop culture icons against the rhetoric of Social Justice Theory advocates. Besides the Ricky Gervais performance and this Boy George tweet, there was also the J.K. Rowling tweet.

    Yeah, I think (hope?) that the tide is turning on this nonsense.

    Andrew Sullivan says this is "genius". I haven't had a chance to watch it, but I trust him.
