We knew the world would not be the same.
A few people laughed, a few people cried, most people were silent.
I remembered the line from the Hindu scripture, the Bhagavad-Gita.
Vishnu is trying to persuade the Prince that he should do his duty
and to impress him takes on his multi-armed form and says,
"Now, I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds.."
I suppose we all thought that one way or another.

Yesterday afternoon, Twitch held a live town hall with the goal of illuminating recent policy changes and features around DMCAs, sexual harassment, ads, and other hot-button issues. In the aftermath, however, many streamers fixated on one small portion of the two-hour presentation: Twitch’s decision to ban words like “simp,” “incel,” and “virgin”—at least, when they’re used in derogatory contexts.

Toward the end of the town hall, Twitch COO Sara Clemens elaborated on new Twitch rules set to go into effect next month. Clemens explained that one of the new rules outlaws “derogatory statements about another person’s perceived sexual practices,” which includes “negatively targeting another person with sexually focused terms.”

“Using terms like ‘simp,’ ‘incel,’ or ‘virgin’ as an insult to negatively refer to another person’s sexual activity is not allowed under this new policy,” said Clemens. “In addition to the policy change, we’re also proactively denying emotes that include the term ‘simp.’ We remove them when reported and will keep doing that once the policy changes.”

bruh what the fuck lol

Pretty sure they've clarified that this only applies when they're used to harass someone and not in general, but it's still an odd decision.

I'm glad. Who the hell uses these words to berate people other than children and manchildren?

I swear to god onlyfans and chaturbate girls will flock to twitch once they find out how little they have to work to get money

Also twitch already banned words like "blind" and other ablest words so the platform is killing itself

Now would be the perfect time for mixer to strike if they didn't shit the bed

Don't think I ever used it. Thought it was cancer, or at least a cause. Not that I much dig the age of censorship though. Just part of a broader worsening trend.

Twitch is for normie coomers
You need to market yourself to the trans fetish audience which does well on chaturbate

Signature goes here.
I most certainly hope these people aren't upset that they can no longer just baselessly throw out these terms. It definitely wouldn't be hypocritical to fight to ban people from calling you a whore or slut, only for you to call someone an incel or simp, because that would just be silly....

The dumb thing they actually did was banning the term "Blind Playthrough"

Nuka I'm genuinely curious to hear your thoughts on this thread. Like, what is your honest response to that? I'm not being mean, or being nice - I'm just interested honestly.

Got all my shit done for the day, nothing much else to do right now unless I can force sleep. Read your snippet there. Although I'm certainly not trans, I've got thoughts if you're up for discussion.

I don't think stuff being easier should be a valid point regarding the issues of transitioning. Our society is fucking stupid and our culture is degenerating into neuroticism. On your standpoint it'd be easy to be a woman because if the shifts I've seen in the last decades are as real as I think they are, women's rights groups have stagnated into petty shit while larger issues go ignored. There appears to be an attack on masculinity on some fronts, and guys in general are either stupid or highly unaware about themselves, or the game that society lures them into.

In short, outta all the people I studied out on my travels, a lot, but not all women have a tendency not to take responsibility. They dump all their shit on the guy in exchange for sexual relations. And most guys don't take responsibility either, but they play along because they're expected to, and a lot of their views are centered around sexual interaction rather than anything truly binding or dare I say wholesome. There's huge shifts going on in society now and a lot of what's happening are the worst scenarios rather than better.

You're right about all of that, but it just proves my point more lol. I didn't transition because it's easier to be a girl than a guy, but I'm just saying it is easier, and why not just acknowledge that and sip up the perks lol? I was doing just fine as a guy in terms of social standing, but yeah I felt disgusting and weird and gross literally 100% of the time. Now I actually like my body and bonus points, my role in society is much easier too. What's not to love, is all I'm asking.

Because it's not inherently easier. Rewind a few hundred years back and it would've been absolute trash to be a woman. So that means it's all social standing and politics that's the cause for this.

What's not to love? You're living in an illusion that's been brought about by the stupidity of people. And the thing with illusions is that eventually they collapse and leave reality behind. Physically if you're content with yourself, that's fine. But to place stock in a construct narrative that's been created and tries to enforce itself? Personally I couldn't do it. Living a lie.

Something else to think about too Class. A decade ago if you would've asked me what the fuck an incel was I would've said lol wut's that. MGTOW, same thing. Stuff happening in feminist circles, same deal. It's not that I didn't pay attention to happenings a decade ago. I've always paid close attention to what happens outside my country bumpkin living zone.

These things not being present a decade ago means these ideologies have gained ground. Perhaps not enough to encompass everything in society. But the rule of anything in life is that it does not stop. It either progresses forward or it ceases and gets left behind.

At least in Canada, I've been observing a trend where the sexes are slowly repelling from each other. Their habits create a viewpoint of each other, which is then drawn with a wide brush narrative and then attacked. The more radical groups attack using this narrative, the more opposition rises. But it's opposition that's as insane as the opposing side. And I imagine it's only worse in the states with all the other divides.

The short point is, if these ideologies continue to gain ground like they have, in a few more decades how both sexes are treated or respond to each other could be radically different. And the reason for that is power structures. These ideologies have gained ground because they've seeped into power structures and news outlets that only widen their range.

Once an ideology gets into the power structures, it starts changing the rules and the narratives, like we're seeing with the extremist feminist circles. Who's to say that one day you won't get an avid worshipper of the incel retoric or MGTOW philosophy in power?

Social standing is just politics in another circle. Politics change. Maybe what I'm saying here won't come to pass. But I know that things probably won't get better as time goes on.

‘The most inoffensive user on this website’ - Verbatim
kinda wack that they’re doubling down so hard on this. I know of a few streamers getting openly sexually harassed by chat with no consequences outside their mods timing out offending commenters. Like, if they’re targeting bullying shouldn’t the biggest problem be the first on the list?

I mean let's be real, when do executives from online platforms ever have good ideas that are implemented in ways that make sense and benefit the end users?

the words are definitely pretty cringey, but it's honestly not a massively big deal imo. Though I could be wrong if there was some kinda study that said "oh fuck this is apparently a big deal" or some weird shit

I did see that they auto-ban people (or some form of covering) people/posts that say the n-word, which is definitely good I believe
