lmfao people really mad at me for acknowledging the fact that men are so fucked up. We benefit from generations of power + control and we have little fucking incels and meninists running around? And somehow, I'm supposed to be banned for simply stating men are trash? Why do other dudes get so offended by the fact that we ain't shit? Men get away with so much foul shit simply because we are dudes. Saying men are trash isn't offensive, it's truth.
#NotAllMen lmao

This controversy is dumb, and the blatant sexism against men in this thread is awful.
A controversy about multiple videos showing the gruesome deaths of feminists, titled to let potential viewers know that they can view said gruesome deaths of feminists, is dumb. But a post or two criticizing men qualifies as awful.

Why do gamers follow so many lame ass alt-right Youtubers?

PS, if your favorite Youtuber hasn't revealed themselves to be an alt-right goon, it's only a matter of time.

I was waiting for this to make news. I have been seeing this guy’s feminist videos in my recommended feed for a long time. The comments are truly disturbing.

I saw several of his videos in my recommended feed and wondered aloud how long it would take before his channel was terminated. Didn't take too long after all.

The subreddit for Rdr2 is (was) in a tizzy about it.

The dude's answer to this was digging his hole deeper by saying what he will do next with more content with the same context in mind. This ain't a guy who deserves a second chance to better their ways and content. It's a guy who wants to further their awful agenda out of sheer spite.

Nothing ridiculous about it. No reason to want this guy to have any sort of second chance because clearly nothing good will come of it. Why do you want him around still?
Because he's white man.

Behind you.

Ah yes, the common "I didn't read the OP and came here to defend to men" poster.

1) Learn to read before posting.

2) The term "sexism against men" is so fucking disingenuous that it makes me want to roll my eyeballs out of my skull. If you think one man calling men "trash" qualifies as "sexism", wait till you hear about the institutional sexism women face every fucking day of their lives. Get some goddamn empathy and have some modicum of self-awareness before going back to defend anime titty games from the scourge of "censorship".

Garbage by this guy showed up in my community post feed, it was on how he made news by triggering the SJWs. I was extremely confused why I received the post, as I wasn’t subbed to him. Turns out, it’s because he was the uploader I evidently used for listening to Bloodborne’s OST. That’s as stupid as Twitter showing me what friends liked on my own feed.

Nice to see his channel terminated after skimming said garbage community post.
I'm pretty sure he was the first on having The Old Hunters soundtrack on YouTube, I subscribed to his channel just for that but then found me clicking on his videos of other soundtracks and gameplays without commentary. It's sad that he's such a hateful person.

I really appreciate the lack of self-awareness on behalf of the people making these videos.

Hate to go against the grain here but... how does it violate YTs TOS? You can decapitate people in the game and blow their limbs off and slowly watch them bleed out and die? It’s kind of hypocritical on YTs side TBH but I’m not defending this guy whatsoever. (He has multiple videos that go on for 10+ minutes of him just doing this) but YT can’t be so one sided. This doesn’t hurt anyone more than any other thing you can do in this game

One of those things is cowboy fantasy and one is not that different than domestic or political violence done towards women every day just for trying to obtain rights.

Nice ad hominem. I'm probably the only one that actually read the article, and googled the offending video(its going viral now, good job Streisand effect). Now you and several other users are also dogpiling anyone who disagrees.

The video is ludicrously banal. He uses antagonize. The NPC quips back, so he punches her and gets a bounty. There are YT channels that are actually anti-feminist, and who (arguably) do more damage.

My 'awful sexism' against men comment is directly responding to the person posting made up statistics. Something that Era should not tolerate.

Don't quote me. Don't @ me. I'm not responding to the derail anymore.

Lets pretend the video was titled “Killing redneck southerners” and it was about indiscriminately murdering normal nonhostile NPCs around Rhodes and the other areas of Lemoyne. Would youtube have enacted the same punishment?

The ideology behind it. And the fact that it was, at least on the surface, saying to "kill feminists".

Falls under specifically targeting a group of people I'd guess. If it was just wanton killing and she happened to die it wouldn't be an issue.

Edit: Whelp, pardon the dogpile.

It's probably the fact that all of his video clips are intentionally targeting female NPCs that are feminists. That is the context here. I don't think anyone would give a damn if it's a random guy or a random girl dying on a train tracks, but he's specifically targeting a character that is fighting for feminism and killing them in numerous ways.

It is actually violating hate speech policy because it is actively promoting or ridiculing women's rights by humiliating a feminist NPC in numerous ways. While the person itself may have done it for laughs, the message it sends is harmful.

No one is saying that we cannot kill a female NPC at all. But when the entire message of the video is "How can we ridicule a feminist NPC in so many ways to piss off SJWs", it is bordering on hate speech.

The problem was how it was targeted. It's not a good look and you can not really say it the same way. Now if it was “Killing redneck southerner men” and it was a women on stream I am sure a few eyebrows would be raised.

Dude has made a ton of videos about specifically killing/beating up feminists. He's fucking mental. Don't let the door hit your ass on the way out shitbag.

Ever since I saw this thread pop up, I knew it’d devolve into a very specific conversation: Men are awful, men taking offense at the blanket statement, and then others complaining that men are taking offense.

This story is about one particular dirt bucket who uploaded multiple videos depicting violence against a female npc in RDR 2 and got banned from YouTube for it. I say, good. That YouTuber was a scumbag and the fact that he’s surprised that YouTube acted the way he did is both horrible and hilarious at the same time. YouTube is a platform and they can do as they wish… he’s entitled to nothing, and frankly, I believe he got what he deserved. Asking for help from Boogie2999 – who is actually looking into this now, it seems, so expect that guy to do another ‘I’m going to toe the middle line’ video – and Jim Sterling is… is just hilarious.

But of course – and it’s sad that this even has to be said – the actions of that man does not reflect all men. For anyone to make that insinuation is ridiculous, the fact that others will take offense to that insinuation is reasonable, and dog piling on the ones who actually speak out against being called inherent abusers just because of their sex is disgustingly sexist behavior.

That’s where we’re at, eh? You can fall under the blanket of being a woman abuser because of what you have between your legs, and when you speak out against that you’re laughed at and called a ‘snowflake’?

Can’t say I’m surprised that’s where this conversation has steered.

News flash, sexism doesn’t only mean it’s man against woman. It can go either way.

YT was so kind to recommend me one of these vids too even though I didn't watch anything regarding feminism, criticism of feminism or even RDR 2 at that point. YT just decided it was a cool video to spread.
When I came across the mission in the game I already had a feeling a bunch of losers would jump on it.

To top it off he's one of those cunts who post spoilers, hated his like before. Even more so now.

Yep, minding my own business searching for RDR2 OSTs and I see his videos popping up.

The game doesn't instruct or guide you to beat this woman up or toss her off a cliff or onto train tracks or whatever. Is the game supposed to suddenly pop up an invisible barrier around this particular character or prompt the player to "maybe go find another target to harass" or something along those lines?
The hilarious thing is, if R* actually did do that these people would be crying bloody murder that "SJWs have forced R* to make EVIL FEMINAZIS literally invincible in my game!!! #historicalaccuracy"

With respect to your second point, the game reduces your honor when you kill random innocents for no reason and raises it when you kill robbers/highwaymen. Killing feminists reduces your honor, which is the game's way of saying "yo you're actually being a dick rn". While the game makes it possible to kill everyone, it clearly makes a distinction between a neutral/"good" kill and a shitty one and judges you accordingly. People pushing "but THE GAME lets you do it!" argument conveniently forget this.
