Identity Crisis Episode 6: Reacting to Woke Instagram
Sasha and M. K. take a deep dive into woke Instagram. We read and analyze posts from a popular account that "dissect[s] progressive politics and social issues in graphic slideshow form". We break down a number of neoliberal and pop political talking points about the paradox of tolerance, Karl Popper, pronouns, dysphoria, gender & sex, and free speech. We critique the "fast food" type of political diet that this Instagram account represents.
