What Is Happening On YouTube?
This is why I have slowed down my youtube channel.
For those who don't know what is going on, yt is losing advertisers by the boatloads. Predominantly because advertisers are caving to social justice warriors and feminists over ridiculous things. Sjws and 3rd wave fems have become the modern version of puritans, and are quite figuratively (#SeeWhatIDidThere?) sucking the fun out of everything.
And YT, much like Twitter, is doubling down on content and content creators deemed "offensive" by their social justice overlords. PewdiePie and JonTron are alr-right racists, Phillip DeFranco is getting demonetized, and even small yt'ers with relatively small channels (like MouthyBuddha) are getting videos demonetized or even set to private.
This is killing small channels. Much like the business world, only very large channels can handle these kinds of new regulations - channels like rhett and link/GoodMythicalMorning, ERB, etc...less popular channels that say the right things, even if incredibly vulgar and crass (not going to name these ones, as these people are asshats) get a free pass, however, as long as they are sjws and/or feminist of some variety.
Say the wrong thing, or have the wrong ideas, big or small, your channel is getting hit.
DeFranco explains a small part of it in the linked video above, for those interested.
My point is this - there needs to be a new social media platform that has at its core free speech.
The slogan needs to be "Free Speech. Not safe speech."
If you're thinking about getting into YT right now, I recommend against it. I really do.
