Call Out Culture: Calling Out vs Calling In
Have you ever been shamed or humiliated in front of people? If so, you’ve felt the all-too-familiar sting of callout culture.
Whether you were called out during school, a social event, or event online, most of us have been publicly shamed at some point. How did it make you feel? Did it make you want to change? Did it feel good? Did it feel like they had your best interest at heart? Odds are good your answer is no.
So why do some think that it’s ok to continue this on into adulthood, especially online?
