I started to write this post, after witnessing some transphobic people. Also, though after watching Echkart Tolle and Brand Russell talk about this sort of thing.
As time has been going on and on more, I have been starting to see on generally all social media platforms that people’s ego’s are taking over, just a little but by little bit…Not anyone’s on here…But you know about how people who yell the loudest, get heard. That’s how I feel about social media right.
When I take a gander at Trump Supporters, Transphobia, or any general bigoted or Conservative account. They’re always “loud”. By loud I don’t mean, they’re necessarily TYPING LIKE THIS, ALL THE TIME…They generally say something really blatantly obviously stupid, but they will always get the most likes. Yet, anyone whose sane or rational will get a couple, if they’re lucky.
For all these loud accounts, when you see them do something in public, like anti-mask “protest”, anti-trans “protests”. Despite them getting thousands of “likes” for their tweets. They may actually get out in public, 20 people…at roughly the most. So WHY do they get so many likes? If you truly believe that you’re not doing anything wrong, why aren’t they getting out there?
That’s why I personally call social media “Ego Media” now. I feel like we can change that perspective though! Let them all go to Parler. They seem to want to go, but I have yet to see anyone actually delete their Twitter account. I think we can change it, but being simply and quietly positive. Be so positive, it will drive them nuts!lol
