‘The vitriol was really unhealthy’: artist Sonia Boyce on the row over taking down Hylas and the Nymphs
It is an open question whether removing Hylas and the Nymphs was a good idea. Many still believe it was ill-judged at best, and that its removal amounted to censorship even if it was not intended as such. Some would say, if you want to have a conversation about Hylas and the Nymphs, keep it in view, not locked in the store. Others would argue that the picture has been looked at and thought about more productively since its brief disappearance than it has for years. Like it or not, the act provoked questions about how we relate to the past, and to its art, that are not going away.

Steven Crowder Under Attack by Twitter and YouTube for Unexplained Reasons
Then it got worse, as Twitter notified Crowder that his account would be suspended for seven days because why the hell not? They even went so far as to suspend “SvenComputer” for his part in the video as well.

Kirchoff noted that while they were happily suspending Crowder and co.’s accounts, there still remains a plethora of tweets spreading demonstrably false information about Crowder, making him out to be an alt-right, neo-nazi, puppy killer.

The Censorship of Conservatives on the Internet Is Approaching Critical Levels of Bad
That the current corporate entities that control the major internet ports of thought are blatantly leftist is no mystery. We’ve seen time and again their willingness to lean into regressive, and social justice agendas to the point where they would fire an employee simply for saying men and women are different. Google will even punish a highly popular YouTuber for exposing the nasty behavior of a social justice leader to his viewers, as well as punish him for not making a pro-Hillary Clinton video during the 2016 presidential elections.

Reddit and the Struggle to Detoxify the Internet
“Does free speech mean literally anyone can say anything at any time?” Tidwell continued. “Or is it actually more conducive to the free exchange of ideas if we create a platform where women and people of color can say what they want without thousands of people screaming, ‘Fuck you, light yourself on fire, I know where you live’? If your entire answer to that very difficult question is ‘Free speech,’ then, I’m sorry, that tells me that you’re not really paying attention.”
