Where social media was once the space for artists to expose their talents and for political acts to be exposed, today it has become a minefield of wokerati. In the run-up to a global pandemic, we witnessed how social media has pushed for authoritarianism in demanding curbs to freedom of dissent concerning matters of science where gender identity has been medicalized. Then during the pandemic, we saw this same left suddenly shift only to insist that medical science, even in its early days researching COVID-19, be hailed and rigidly supported. Raise your hand if you got whiplash watching this bait and switch.
