Time to Eradicate Toxic Imageboard Culture

Oliver James

Hey Anons.

I'm an oldfag who has been using imageboards for over 6 months. Though I have grown to greatly appreciate imabeboard/chan culture this are certain toxic aspects that I think it's time that we, as a community, address.

The first and most obvious example is the use of the word "fag" as a suffix. Using this type of destructive and hurtful language does nothing but make gender and sexual minorities (GSM's) in the community feel unwelcome, (as well as making the speaker appear vulgar and uneducated). One of the most appealing things about this website and our community is the promise of free speech. Many consider the use of inflammatory and venomous language to somehow be a part of "free speech", but it is not. By discouraging the use of this monstrous word we promote and foster true free speech.

Another word used promiscuously here is "cancer". Which is used as both a noun and an adjective. Chances are we all know friends and loved ones who have had to suffer through this awful disease. Using the word in this way is crude and insensitive.

Lastly, I suggest that we as a community stop promoting and normalizing violence against women and persons of color (POC's). I know that this is common to /pol/ but it has leaked its way to every board on this website. Racist or sexist remarks, like the other ones listed in this post, prevent constructive discourse as well as creates an atmosphere of discomfort for women and POC's who are a part of this community.

There are of course other things that we as a community should recognize and stamp out to foster social consciousness and social justice.

I've created a pledge and ask that all anons repost it, to show their support to the cause. Below the line.

I know it's a troll, but:
we can promote free speech by denying free speech
This is what liberals actually believe. Obviously if you publicly say something like "I'm going to slay a bunch of niggers tonight." that should probably be looked into, but there's nothing wrong with a single word. It's offensive to some people. So what? We ban one word, we make it easier to justify banning less and less offensive words. Where does it end? Eat shit and die of cancer, you faggot, nigger cumdumpster.
