'Self censorship' is not problematic. It's not the bad kind of censorship it's worth overthrowing a government for. 'Self censorship' is just making a choice not to be a dick.
I could go around calling people ‘fag’ all the time. When I was fourteen, that’s exactly what I did. Then I learned that it made my gay friends feel less comfortable around me, and less safe generally. So I stopped. It was a hard habit to break, but I was hurting people and I didn’t realize it. I wouldn’t make the choice to hurt people like that, casually and pointlessly, but without the education I didn’t even know I was making that choice.
The same here. These videos and the outpouring of support around them are largely women saying ‘this stuff makes me feel unwelcome’ which is hopefully not what anybody was trying to do. But now that they know, I should hope they consider those choices with a more appropriate gravity in the future.”
