    The Twitch Safety Council

    I don't frequent Twitch that often but I figured this was worth talking about considering what Twitch actually just did.



    So to combat hate speech among other things, Twitch signed on people for a "safety council" and as one would expect of YouTube, I think they focused more on making it diverse as possible while ignoring actual credentials for the role.

    Needless to say, a trans person by the name of "Deer Girl" was added who has been a vocal bully, racist, and "hate speech spreader" themselves both on Twitch (targeting gamers as awhole) and on Twitter (mocking autistic people).

    What were they thinking?

    I had heard about this but seen a different video than the one you posted. This is a good example of the type of person I find to be truly vile. Everyone has a few negative points when you really think about them, but this guy is an incredibly self-centered fuck that we'd be better off without. This person is poison to every group he interacts with (and that includes the general public) because he expects every group he approaches to bend backwards to accommodate him and his fetishes/delusions/requests. What's this nonsense about voice chat in games giving people an unfair disadvantage? Then don't take hormones. Should HEIGHT be banned in sports because it makes some people bigger & taller? People have different physical and mental capabilities. We each excel (and suck) at different things. As a competitive gamer he should know that not every person competes on the exact same level. What if I want to compete at Apex Legends but I only have 1 hour per day to play? Shall we ban anyone from practicing more than 1 hour per day so everything is fair?

    I find it super rude to invite oneself into a group and then expect the existing members to bend backwards to accept the newcomer. All of this could have been forgiven because I consider "Deer Girl" (boy, let's not mince words here: This is for attention.) to be mentally ill. I do my best not to attack those who can't comprehend their actions, but it's become clear that this guy is aware of what he's doing and takes the time out of his day to insult autistic & dyslexic people.

    Did they back off on hiring this guy or are they going ahead with it because they think the blowback for firing a fake trans person would be too harsh? I know that if I was online publically bashing autistic folks & acting like a deer, I wouldn't get to keep my job.

    The sky-high level of sensitivity in the gaming community, dev studios, and publishing companies makes me miss the golden days of Call of Duty where everyone spouted the nastiest trashtalk imaginable and it was all cool. It opened my eyes to a lot of things. It wasn't until I played multiplayer shooters that I found out I was gay and learned a lot about my mom's sexual history.

    That is the thing, everyday folks would lose their jobs and face harsh criticism for what he said online to other people and it bothers me that if Twitch does nothing, they are just sending the message that it was okay. The guy has issues and I try to be as nice as I can because a lot of times, these mental health issues stem from sexual abuse when they were children but come on... Why would you give someone like this power over anything?

    Yuck, I hate seeing that face in so many YouTube thumbnails. It seriously is horror movie content. The sooner that manchild vanishes from my feed the better.

    what manga is this from?

    Wow.

    Who would have thought that in 2020, the internet would become so sensitive to have "safety councils" or teams of people to review posted content to ensure that people are not harmed while online?

    I think these are steps backwards.

    @Mantis when will Outlaw Star Nexus get its own SJW/Communist Group Think Team?

    Not a day before I croak! (And after then, let's hope Ol' Zemekis is around to keep things relatively sane!)

    I just don't understand why people like this aren't being helped. He clearly has some kind of issue and it is sad to see people pretending this is normal. This is not normal and not a healthy way to live. Everyone is in denial. I feel like Twitch, among other companies, do this and put these types in charge of something just so they can avoid criticism from the outraged mob on social media but they end up hurting people who genuinely value said company.

    Oh yes! There'd be some changes around here however:
    -female anime avatars only, perma-ban for all smelly males.
    -live action threads are perma-ban
    -talking about games? Cool. Better hope it's a JRPG or else your email is getting signed up for Scientology newsletters & BlackPeopleMeet.com
    -site is now hosted in Texas for some reason

    When we hit this stage a few years ago, i feel like there was a decision to make. Either treat transsexuals as mentally ill or placate them. The fakers were somehow able to position themselves in the public eye as an oppressed class and the general public decided to bow down to them with no limits. I've said it before and it bears repeating here: I have absolutely nothing against people with genuine, diagnosed gender dysphoria. It's a real mental condition and I respect them doing what they need to do, just like any other mental illness. That said, I think >95% of people who present themselves as trans are faking it. It's for attention & I believe that's insensitive to the people actually going through genuine discomfort due to something out of their control. Faking a mental illness is disgusting to me.

    The pendulum swung too far and now anyone who claims to be trans has invincibility to criticism outside of niche discussions like this one. Since when is that part of the deal? It all breaks down when you realize that people with real gender dysphoria make up <0.1% of the population. Even further when you notice that 90% of "trans" people online are Male to Female, but the real disorder is more of an even split. These are incels, ugly dudes, and gay guys who can't cut it as a male. The genuine mental condition has nothing to do with voice chat in gaming or anything like that. These fakers are using their invulnerability to criticism as leverage to make their lives even easier by removing barriers in fields where they regularly couldn't compete. Not to mention that Deer Boy here wouldn't have landed a job with Twitch (or ANYWHERE with his snarky attitude) without trans pity-points.

    What's extra ironic about the whole thing is that the fakers tend to use their pity points to enter straight white male run spheres exclusively. They use their newfound social standing to enter gaming, successful companies, etc. It's always used as leverage to enter the world of the people they claim as bigots. They don't push for trans rights in the Middle East or the ghettos of Detroit. Nope. They'd rather just yell at Microsoft until they get a job there. The ones we should be caring about are probably too mentally distraught to seek gainful employment or worry about video games.

    Isn't your avatar a depiction of some decrepit near 80-year-old cis white male terrorist? Ain't gonna be smellin' like roses, bud.

    What about live action replies? Loophole found!

    No objection, surprisingly. Better than most game genres at least.

    Pretty sure it's currently California. There's another data center available for migration. So you have two options...

    California or Land of the Benchod, yeeehaw! (Well, almost.)
