Feminist YouTuber Laci Green Speaks Out Against ‘Social Justice’ Orthodoxy
https://heatst.com/culture-wars/feminis ... orthodoxy/Laci Green picked apart the concept of “harmful speech,” which she says the progressive left uses to shut down and suppress their opponents under the reasoning that doing so prevents “bigotry” from spreading. They’ve managed to do so through widespread protests that led to the disruption of speeches by conservative speakers and anyone critical of social justice, and the cancellation of book deals—like Milo Yiannopoulos’ Dangerous.
Citing the protests against Milo Yiannopoulos, the suppression of free speech only makes certain arguments all the more attractive due to the backfire effect, which makes censored voices more sympathetic to a moderate audience.
“Through open dialogue, we can parse out ideas and really see what they’re made of. In response, everyone else has free speech too. They can dissent, they can protest, they can ask political questions, they can counter the questions, they can highlight fallacies and the moral failings of the argument,” she said.
