A. Never do anything out of fear.
A. I'd like to be a bird. The option to fly at will sounds fantastic. The eating worms part, not so much.
A. Comfort in family, comfort in friends, comfort in career, and comfort in pajamas.
A. I know the value of hard work.
A. Um, hi, chocolate. I'd be a very happy 600 pounds.
Yo, this kid is only 17 and has more sense than the average victim blaming adult. Why didn’t I know people like him in high school?
"When the bar has been set so low for being a youtuber that I just don’t want them to rape other people, there’s definitely something wrong."
I think my favorite part is, “All right, George Lucas!”
This is a really great video.

Hey all. I’ve been tweeting updates but I thought putting it all here might be easier. Although you may have noticed some quieting, this problem has not been solved and we’re still working on it. Here’s what I’m personally working on:
Working with the survivors. Another charge of…
Yes, true. However, to that I say:
Dear New Yorker: How can an organization that makes a huge chunk of profit from advertising on their users’ uploads and regulates with...
Can you make a post and mention me in it? Then I’ll reblog.
There has to be a report somewhere on this; reporters are always writing articles about Adsense and YouTube’s revenues. Does anyone know how to best determine the biggest advertisers on Google/YT?
I’m aware of all these things. I’m not saying hiring all those moderators is the answer (though I am unconvinced they don’t actually have the capital). But I’m not one of YouTube’s and Google’s highly paid geniuses working on world solutions, either. They have the resources, they have the mouthpiece, they have the ability to bring this issue to a higher stance and do more to educate their audience and their creators so that the report function works better.
I don’t have the answer. And I hate...
Thank you! I have now contacted several outlets individually and several reporters I respect very much, and am creating a more general blast to send to the large quantity of journalists I have collected in my inbox from my career as one as well as 13+ years of HP reporting. There has to be a thing we can do, because YT/Google can really make a difference here if they tried. Or they can continue to stand idly by and only be forced to marginal action by major social media efforts, and profit...
That is ABSOLUTELY true and something I was thinking about this morning. NFL responded in part because the sponsors were backing down (which is in response to public pressure, in response to media attention, etc). Who are the largest advertisers on Google’s networks and the third party networks? They should see what this platform is doing, too.
What an excellent question I should have seen coming and now cannot possibly not reply to! That’s OK though, I feel really proud of my team’s action on this score. They are heavily invested and care an incredible amount.
We have always had harassment and other violations listed in our terms for purchasing a ticket, as well as the stipulation that we reserve the right to remove any person from the event; we also now have a mandatory code of conduct linked on our front page of our web site and...
Profit in Sexual Abuse on YouTube: It’s Google, Too.
So. This is going to be long. Strap in.
I’ve been a skosh slapdash about doing the appropriate reading, so I just caught up on all this Sam Pepper stuff. If you haven’t, watch the video I posted above by lacigreen. It is the basic rundown of what has gone on way too long.
Very short summary? There is a collection of male YouTubers making careers out of being assholes, which is no surprise: what was a surprise to me was to learn that some of...
Remember when I blindly hated Russel Brand? I fucked up.

That day has now passed. Well, summer sang in me a little while, that in me sings no more.
Thanks, MRA. You guys are freaking awesome.
