So I recently subscribed to the Waypoint Facebook page at the behest of Austin on a recent podcast. Though I know Facebook as a whole is a cesspool, I was hoping Waypoint’s brand of positivity and inclusivity would make this group different. But of course it isn’t, it’s the same type of troglodytes that over and over make comment sections unbearable. The amount of vileness and transphobia in the recent South Park piece was particularly galling.
My quandary is this: while I do want to support the site in any way I can, shouldn’t I reasonably expect that anything that I’m pushed to with Waypoint branding be consistent with the ethos of the site? Or is there something about Facebook that I’m not understanding?
