Libs of TikTok
I hate our culture
We have all laughed at the people highlighted on Libs of TikTok, people were acting like cartoon characters. In the early days of Libs of TikTok that is what most people did because it was just another right-wing cringe site, and if the social media site stayed like that, I don’t think people would have a problem with it. Last week reporter Taylor Lorenz from the Washington Post revealed the woman behind the viral social media site Libs of TikTok. I really didn’t care at first because all is fair in the culture war and if you don’t want your life affected by it then don’t participate in it. Then I found out that the woman behind the site was an Orthodox Jew, well I found that to be interesting, because as a Jew you are bound by the same Ten Commandments that Christians like me are, and she seems to not care about them.
When you agree to live a life under God especially a person living under the Judeo-Christian values you are supposed to be able to rise above the mud. Unfortunately, Libs of TikTok decided to get into the mud with the people. What changed my opinion on Libs of TikTok is when the platform started to really go after teachers in a big way and it helped start the very homophobic Groomer discourse. Teachers like a lot of us are peculiar they do an absolute thankless job in society and in most cases are criminally under paid. So yes, I do think it is a little unfair to go after teachers, I don’t believe all teachers are innocent and some probably have harmful ideas, but that doesn’t give you the right for destroying someone’s life for just telling his or her students that they have same-sex attraction. You are not a pedophile or a “Groomer” if you have a same-sex attraction and I really can’t believe I have to state that in 2022. Have there been teachers who have molested children in the past yes, but those teachers are in the minority. A lot of those teachers have also been straight women preying on teenage boys. I have also been disturbed by the fruits that have come out of this culture of death we are living in; however, I really don’t think we should put all the blame on teachers. Celebrities and the internet have done more damage to children than your child’s drama teacher.
I don’t like the culture war or what has come out of it but spreading innuendo and homophobic terms is not what is going to turn our society around. It is going to take a lot of patience and love to do that. Yes, that means accepting people as who they are and where they are at in life. It was wrong for Taylor Lorenz to expose the private person behind the Libs of TikTok, but it was also wrong for Libs of TikTok to get teachers fired for talking to their students about having same-sex attraction. As a society we must find a middle ground so we can talk to one another and not talk past one another. I hope everyone is having a blessed week.
