I have seen several posts online- on WordPress, and social media sites, by Christians challenging men to use their real identities online. If they don’t, they aren’t manly, of course.
This position is not only ignorant, but foolish and dangerous. It makes me wonder if advocates of identity unmasking are controlled opposition, and working for the enemy.
Why do you want to know the personal identities of people you don’t know in person? Are you trying to doxx them? Are you trying to ruin their careers or livelihood?
The reality is that these people are trying to silence critical thought, and to keep you in line. Them knowing you gives them an advantage, especially when they are supported by institutions, and/or have a following. You are just one person.
We live in an age where saying “I believe gender hormonal treatments for kids is abuse,” or “marriage is between one man and one woman” will get you fired from most businesses in most cities, and from government agencies.
These statements, made after hours and having nothing to do with your work, can ruin your career. So do you martyr yourself on every hill, silence yourself, or find an alternative?
Groups of leftists and cowards grovel for individuals to slip up, and pounce on them. That individual will not receive any support from friends in trying times. Any public affiliation with the subject will make the mob’s eye of Sauron focus on them.
When do neighbors rally against protestors who harass a neighbor? I’ve never seen it.
Requesting another person’s personal information online, when not consensual, feels like the situation Lot’s guests faced, when the city surrounded Lot’s home, desiring to “know” who the visitors were. It creeps me out.
