She knew the advice for confronting tigers. Never look away first. But this was no tiger.
The dragon's eyes, amber with gold flecks, felt like they pierced her soul. In that moment, they knew each other.

In my opinion, replying to someone's followers-only post should offer a new privacy option to make your reply visible only to THEIR followers, instead of YOURS.
If I post in followers-only mode, I may be trusting that my post will only be known by my followers. But when a follower X replies, this exposes half the conversation to X's followers while denying my followers who don't follow X the opportunity to interact with the reply. In the end nobody is happy.

the most insidious part of cancel culture isn't that it comes for innocent people, or even that it unfairly punishes people for minor mistakes. the most gruesome part is that its hit a crescendo in the mainstream that any sort of attempt to have serious discussions surrounding accountability or policing one's own community and expelling bad actors gets hit with the label of Cancel Culture and entirely delegitimizes all of the work people are doing, and in some ways vindicates the person in question. no matter what they've done, it can be absolved by "Cancel Culture Hate Mob"
