doneforamillionyears asked: How do you think the rest of the youtube abuse scandal/issue will unfurl? I'm frustrated that I haven't seen any more dialogue about it and that the youtubers accused have ducked underground since the first few days after the allegations came to light (specifically Alex Day) instead of addressing them in response to the criticism. Do you think anything will continue to happen/change? That they will come back to address this again?

I dunno. Some people (Luke Conard, Eddplant, maybe others) have just come back to the internet with the attitude of ‘well I apologised and now I’m a better person so let’s move on again’. I think with the strange and massive avoidance of any ‘big names’ talking about it, it’s probably all going to just blow over. It already HAS largely blown over, and a vast majority of the perpetrators’ subscriber bases remain completely unaware.

I know I’m definitely not done talking about it, but tbh I kind of feel like the only one.

If you take a young man and woman and they both tell a stranger that they work in the same restaurant, it’s very likely that they will assume that the woman is the waitress, and the young man a cook.

But I thought a woman’s place was in the kitchen? Not when she’s being paid for it. I can’t believe it took me this long to realize the implication of this. A woman’s place is one of servitude.

this fucking hit me like a fucking train

being neutral isn’t being neutral

if you have the privilege of being neutral and you do it and stay silent, it only benefits the oppressors

your neutrality is literally never going to help those who are being crushed by an oppressive system

so don’t feel like you’re a good person for “not picking a side” because that oppressive system loves your passivity

Fetishizing ‘power’ in women characters – having them kicking ass and always being ready with a putdown - isn’t the same as writing them as human beings.

Favorite Doctor Who episodes: the First Doctor → The Romans

Isn’t it strange to think that people will read about that in books for thousands and thousands of years and here am I sitting here actually watching it.
