Tik-Tok Responds

There are some amazing creators on TikTok, and I hope it doesn’t go away. (That’s a whole ‘nother conversation.)

My inquisitive students ask great questions, and we do our best to investigate and seek information. If anyone tells me to “just teach,” I say, “Okay! Will do!”

This is still a work in progress, but it’s a start:

I spent an inordinate amount of time researching some of the far-right voices and finally gave up: the question is how they use dog whistles, propaganda, and rhetoric to influence their audiences? I know they do, and it’s well-documented, but I’ll be darned if it feels like chasing vapor. I know one, in particular, who is a master at stochastic terrorism. This is part of the ‘work’ in the progress.

If you find creators or a perfect Tik-Tok that responds to the following questions, please leave it in the comments:

  • Trans rights
  • Forced birthers and the fight against women’s rights, healthcare, and freedoms
  • Ways to be proactive and combat those who are stripping rights
  • Book banning
  • Wealth gaps, economy, and bad faith actors/capitalism
