We can't claim that this movement is gaining no traction whilst simultaneously acknowledging that massive financial institutions are shaping policy due to fear of 10k strong Twitter mob backlash.its corporate ass covering,eh?
they are afraid of the very loud twitter mob coming after them............and that blowing up in the outrage media.............the two things give the whole thing an unnatural weight compared to their actual size and power...........people just dont want the hassle
I suspect that if twitter banned a select 10,000 people total,we wouldnt hear anything about this shit ever again outside some real,more serious issues with sexism and the like.........
It either has effect in the real world and in peoples real lives or it doesn't and the evidence suggests it does... even in the construction industry in the UK, you make comments against the grain of equity and diversity at your peril. One of the conditions in a contract we signed up for included the agreement that you couldn't harass someone (among all the usual racial, gender, trans, religious stuff which is fine) on the basis of "marital status" ... to this day I can't work out how you harass someone on the basis of their marital status...
"Ha ha, you're married ya cunt"
At least when we got to that part of the conditions, we all kinda laughed at the idea.
