my brother (who is almost 11) has been watching right-wing sexist idiots on youtube and has decided that feminists are crazy and that women actually have more rights then men! i dont know how to explain to him that he’s wrong, because he just ignores me. for example i sent him this article about why we still need feminism and he refused to read more than the first paragraph. he has started acting more sexist and ignorant recently honestly wtf do i dooooo
I am a 13 year old girl (2018) and I have a youtube channel on which i upload technique and gaming videos etc. A while ago I was in a swedish show for children, where I spoke about my channel. I got a lot of nice comments about it, and a bunch of new subscribers. But there was one person who obviosly did not like my content. Judging by the name I assumed it was a boy, and he commented on my video calling me names like ”fucking cunt” and ”I hope you die a brutal death”. He also told me to get silecone tits, because a titty streamer (girls with cleavage who play video games) needed to have big tits. I have also gotten things like ”suck my dick” from users like him. Hate comments is of course some thing you deal with as a content creater, when YouTube often is anonymous. What I wont deal with is the sexual elements the hate included. Because I am a girl he used sexual things like cunt against me. If I were a boy I would still get hate, but with the sex excluded. And the thing that concerns me is that he saw me on a children’s show. A children’s show. Children watch children’s shows, meaning the person must be of a younger age. And if a child can call me a fucking cunt, using sex as a weapon towards me, then we obviosly have a problem.
I was watching a parody video on YouTube and there was a comment saying “you deserve rape.” I reported it.
I was watching a comedy-related vid on YouTube just now, & when I finished watching it, a vid entitled ‘Top 10 most embarrassing moments’ appeared on screen as suggested viewing. It featured 2 newsreaders- one male & one female- & one of the newsreaders had their shirt open & a big red arrow pointing to their chest. Guess which one it was (clue: it wasn’t the man). I bet that if the man’s flies were open & his penis was on show, that wouldn’t have made it into the vid, but women’s breasts are perfectly OK, apparently.
A few weeks ago, YouTube uploaded a video on international women’s day about feminism. I smiled at the beautiful video and truly appreciated it, but then I scrolled down into the comments and *BOOM* hate. Some of the comments were about how women didn’t need a pat on the back, or about how men didn’t get their own video. Others were about sexism not being real. And the most stupid ones were the ones saying that there are worse problems in the world, and that we didn’t want to waste our time on this non existent issue. AGHH, those ignorant people make me so angry.
I have a modestly successful YouTube account for Disney fan videos, and a Facebook page to accompany it. All today I’ve been getting messages on the Facebook page from someone who calls themselves Donna, although their profile says Jacob and they claim Jacob is their brother. But then I started getting messages from “Jacob” himself, under another profile, and he started telling me to text him, call him, etc. and eventually said he wanted to “give my butt a slap.” I immediately blocked him – both profiles, as I am no longer sure if I was actually talking to a girl named Donna. I also blocked them on YouTube to ensure my own safety. Here’s to hoping he doesn’t create more profiles and continue to harass me, especially since reporting doesn’t do much good.
I was on YouTube the other day, & was watching a few vids. I read the comments under one particular one, & some guy had posted a comment with the sentence “rape her raw” in. To be fair (!), he wasn’t talking about a woman, he was talking about an inanimate object (won’t go into specifics about what), but I still thought it was an unacceptable thing to write, & I did find that it was a jarring note in an otherwise very enjoyable vid. Why do people think it’s OK to toss the word ‘rape’ around in such a casual fashion?
