On episode 170 of the BSP I discuss a recent analysis done by
Coffee Break regarding the bias shown on the YouTube Trending Page,
and discuss a battle going on between Vox & Steven Crowder,
what I think the true motives are, and what I think you should do
with this information.
CLARIFICATION: I do not think my discussion on the second
story was clear. To make sure what I said in the 2nd story is not
misconstrued, I do not support the doxxing or harassment of
individuals. I also think that if you label your self “x,y, or z”,
and someone then calls you “x,y, or z”, that probably should not
offend you or be labeled sexist, racist, or homophobic.
I also think that the move towards identitarianism is somewhat
damaging. It puts people in groups, leading to a further sense of
segregation and in some cases more animus towards one another. I
believe that instead of thinking of people as “what boxes do they
check on this list of physical/sexual traits”, we should view each
person as the culmination of their actions and ideas.
Additionally, if you’re creating content for millions of
people, there will inevitably be people who make fun of you and
criticize you. That, unfortunately, comes with the territory, and
the only way to stop this would be remove all ability to comment,
which I think would be more damaging.
I hope that the harassment of Carlos Mazza stops, because
harassment is awful, but I do not necessarily think that joking
about someone is grounds for banning. If youtube decides that
joking about someone is bannable, then no comedians, late night
talk show hosts, or even politicians should be allowed on youtube
because they have likely ALL done this.
