This cancel culture mentality works like a forest fire. There is never a point at which it become satisfied and relents. No, it just gets bigger and more destructive.
Now that ‘fire’ has been threatening no less a figure than Halle Berry.
Halle is one of the more accomplished of the Hollywood elite and has been churning out movies for a very long time. But even being the first Black woman to win an Oscar for Best Actress wasn’t enough to protect her from the scolding finger of Cancel Culture.
Normally, Hollywood getting behind an LGBT story is a good thing, right?
Not in this case. This time, she ran afoul of the newest edition of the identitarian regulations.
She made the mistake of considering acting in a role as a transgender man. For those who have trouble keeping up with the terminology, that’s someone who was born as a woman, but plans to live as a man. And all hell broke loose on her.
Of course, if gender is a social construct, as they claim, one might wonder why such rules are so rigidly applied in the first place.
But she reacted to the mob, yielding ground to them.

Of course, feeding the mob with acts of contrition only emboldens and makes them stronger.
But apparently we haven’t learned that lesson yet.
It was right there in ‘If You Give A Mouse A Cookie’.
