“Sometimes the best way to ensure diverse voices is to make it safe for people to speak up who’d otherwise feel afraid.”

And here is the crux of the article: “It’s cool to ban speech as long you’re banning BIG LOUD UGLY voices so that snowflakes can get a word in.”

We already have a lot of diverse voices on the Internet (including yours). Have you not noticed?

What does it matter if Richard Spencer and his band of cretins have their own sub-Reddit talking white supremacist trash. It’s about as noteworthy as flat-earthers having their own sub-Reddit. If their speech does not meet the “Yelling fire in crowded movie theater” standard, just move on and keep speaking your own truth.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
