Crossroads

Hosted BySasha White

Welcome to the Crossroads interview series! My name is Sasha White, and I was fired for my tweets in August 2020. I was accused of “transphobia” by an anonymous user for my critiques of gender identity ideology, and my employer terminated me in under two hours. You can read that story in full detail here.
My goal is to explore the way censorship works not only to silence outspoken people but to influence ordinary people to censor themselves. I hope that this project will give a voice to opinions and perspectives that are not typically included in mainstream narratives.
