Searching for an article - the rise of victims of a single event
Posted on 08/02/2019 9:45:10 PM PDT by tbw2
I heard a term but didn't quite catch it based on an article title including the word.
The article came out this week. It refers to people permanently victimized, shamed, shunned and abused because of a single event.
For example: you're called a racist on social media and can't find a decent job again. Or you and a girl exchanged nude sexts at 14 and get labeled a sex offender.
The article was talking about how we're creating a new class of permanently shamed who are never redeemed.
What is the name of the article? Where can I read it in detail?
TOPICS: Chit/Chat; Society

Yeah. A couple of female comedians went public with their anti-Trump stupidity.
Now they are permanently UGLY.

It's a part of a rogue culture that should be troubling to all patriotic Americans. Your patriotism, whether outwardly expressed or not, is being demonized and that could mean the beginning of the end of your chosen profession. HR culture and what it defines as hiring and firing "criteria" only appears to go by the book, and Affirmative Action is still a law of the land, but it's never enough to complete a carefully crafted corporate image of being multi-cultural, politically correct, and less outwardly and distinctively American. Ironically, the majority of the people in charge of these HR gateways to employment are American women. Is it too much "girl power" or was our work force really that terrible back in the 20th Century? We never would have made it to the moon and back in 1969 if NASA and it's conglomeration(s) of contractors and suppliers, etc. were forced into following today's HR criteria. Appearances count for WAY too much nowadays and the U.S. businesses, large and small, can no longer afford to be so shallow.

Is “cancelled” the term you want?

It’s like a friend told me many years ago...
“I don’t understand it. A girl can sleep around and you don’t call her a whore. But suck one little d*ck, and it’s “Queer! Queer!”
