“but I wonder why you attempt to limit this observation to women”
Because a. her whole ostracization is based on her IDing as a woman (with all the socio-cultural goodies and negatives that generally brings with it, including the supposed inherited internal supar fearz of being left by the tribe in the wilderness due to social non-conforming from her 1000th grandmother via internal hormone profile/physiology etc.) and b. because it’s the topic, and literally JK’s whole point in IDing as a woman and wanting to keep her ID “pure” (trans-exclusionary, that is she dislikes born pen is-havers getting to take her grand titular).
“I expect that Anthony Fauci or Bret Kavanaugh have been no more pleased to find themselves at the bottom of their particular dog piles.”
Obviously, but look at Kman now, just loving beer and taking rights away like it’s not a thing. As to Fauci, dude deserves it and more, shouldn’t have fooled merica on purpose.
“I am hard pressed to know what one can do about it.”
Oh it’s not that hard, many forums enforce anti-dog piling.
Twitter just allows it when it wants to as a means of social influence. Elon would likely keep it to a min if he bought it.
“Social ostracism (within limits) is a good thing.”
Arguable, but that’s only within limits, and within non-leftist control. You can’t have the church ladies in charge of it, and you can’t have the new school church ladies (now inclusive of men) of leftism in charge of it, else disaster in either case. And, arguably, 7% of the population cannot be using it to brow beat 93% of the population too hard, lest they eventually get roflstomped for their trouble.
“My preferred solution would be simply to tax social media companies (all of them) into non-existence. ”
“The Amish are rather famous for using shunning as a means of enforcing social norms.”
Greg, bro, the Amish actually use shunning etc. in order to enforce a trad way of life that actually is stable for them (low conflict among members), they’re not using it to “push”/remold society via social engineering (using ostracization, education etc) into a more unstable state (higher conflict among members) in order to accommodate victims of said society. Which is kind of the whole point of modern leftism ala “progress”. Not sure how you’re missing that. You’ll notice there is no explosion of trans Amish youth, if there are any trans outwardly IDable trans Amish youth at all. You’ll notice there are basically no leftist Amish trying to secure trans rights in Amish area local laws. You’ll notice there is remarkably low gay outward behaviors among Amish (though who knows rates of gay attractions among Amish probably same 5%ish). There are practically no black/indian/asian etc. Amish (tho a few), and certainly no Muslim etc. Amish. The list goes on. All of those actions/minorities are suppressed among the Amish in return for societal stability (lack of conflict among the groups, at the cost of the minorities not getting to do their preferred societal actions/belong, or in lefty speak, they’re big ots).
Anyway, at least your post shows you’re not totally beyond all thinking. Good convo but this kinda thing is exhausting and I have work to do.
