Survey for "Cancel the Cancel Culture" Campaign


These words are thrown around carelessly, they eventually lose their meaning and intention. This is what happened with the Cancel Culture. They show the implications of what it has evolved into–and the truth is, it is dangerous.

Cyberbullying and harassment are becoming more common on social media because they are no longer limited to individuals or groups, but also include personal beliefs, opinions, or general ideas. The beginning of “Cancel Culture” that’s also known as “callout culture” is an act of public shaming that excludes someone from professional circles that the society deemed as problematic. Usually, younger generations are the ones who use this term to publicly shame a person on popular platforms like Twitter, Tiktok, Facebook, Instagram, Youtube, etc. 


The cancellation of "Cancel Culture" will have a significant positive impact on the canceled, canceler, and even the bystanders.

In a way that they will have more confidence and self-esteem. Another, the cancellation of cancel culture will give the victim a sense of privacy in his/her life as the issue he/she might’ve been involved in is supposed to be a private matter that the victim should solve on their own.

It can also have a negative impact on the mental health of those who witness it. Some bystanders are terrified after witnessing so many people being canceled. They become overwhelmed with fear that if they fully express themselves, people will turn on them. This may cause them to keep their feelings and opinions to themselves rather than discussing and working through them.

Bystanders may also be concerned that others will use something from their past against them. Or they may be afraid that every word they say or write will be scrutinized and interpreted as offensive, even if it wasn't intended to be. It will result in people being more tolerant of other people's viewpoints, more accepting of the fact that everyone makes mistakes, and more positivity and progress from all political parties. 

We believe in its positive impact, but publicly shaming someone can also get ugly, and it isn’t as black and white as we have just possibly portrayed it to be. It may not affect you right now, but it will in the future. There is a possibility that the “Cancel Culture” will affect the future generations to adapt the way of calling out someone in public. As the "woke" continue to become increasingly offended by a wide range of nonsense, it is critical to respond.  

Remember, to be a user of the internet is to be a good citizen of this virtual world. We are responsible for our attitude and so we have to make use of it as we scroll through these social media platforms. Not only that, we should also use it to educate fellow users so that these online humiliations can go extinct.

Join us in speaking out against "Cancel Culture." There is no telling how sensitive and unaccepting people will become if we do not act now to stop this ongoing toxic trend.
