I’ve seen enough hentai to know where this is going.

Commented on Ms. Male Character - Tropes vs Women in Video Games

So in order to provide feedback on the same forum she is using, I must purchase a webcam or camcorder and possibly some form of editing software in order to make my video in response to hers? Ok, so people are allowed to provide criticism towards her, so long as they have the money and time to make such a video, as opposed to… simply posting a comment.

Also, did I ever say that she had to address every criticism made towards her? It would be asinine to ask anyone to do such a thing, but what I’m asking is whether or not the criticisms matter if they don’t reach her at all. Say there was a corrupt state senator somewhere in America, but no one was exposing or addressing the corruption except for a small local newspaper somewhere in Brazil. Does the criticism matter if it doesn’t reach it’s intended audience (in this case, Americans) and/or the one being criticized?

Continue this argument if you wish, but I’m done. I’ve simply have enough of this issue. Excuse me while I play Plants VS Zombies because they’re all gender neutral. (By the way, if I find a plant tomorrow with a bow on it, I’m giving up.)

Christ, I’m so done with this argument.

I’m not moving the goalposts, but does criticism truly matter unless it reaches it’s intended viewer and the one being critiqued? By posting praise or rebutal in KYM, has the criticism been nullified because it has not reached it’s intended audience? Perhaps that’s a debate for another time.

For the record, I have not joined twitter because (in my own humble opinion) there are more morons on twitter than on Youtube, and perhaps I want to voice an argument that’s longer than 140 characters. Also, I said “it is my understanding” because I had checked on Facebook shortly before posting my previous comment, and it certainly appears that I would have to become her friend or join one of her groups in order to post a criticism.

As for the censorship portion of my argument… if you want to contend that she is doing everything “heavenly possible” for us to voice our opinions, then fine, by that definition she is not censoring her viewers, but by not allowing viewers to provide their own criticism in the very forum she herself is posting in, it is certainly hypocritical.

A “large investment of time and energy?” I never said she had to be the one to do it. Hell, take some of that $150,000 and and give someone $50 to moderate her comments. It wouldn’t be unlike other large Youtube partners that have multiple users per channel. (Machinima, Vsauce, DigitalRev).

Also, if you’re counting KYM comments, then sure, she isn’t censoring anyone, but there are two problems with that contention. 1) I highly doubt she will ever read comments on KYM. 2) I currently do not have a twitter or Kickstarter. Also, it is my understanding that I would either have to add her as a friend or like/join one of her groups in order to provide criticism on Facebook, and frankly, I shouldn’t have to do either of those to voice my opinion. You can argue that I can still post criticisms on KYM or another platform, but if that is the case, there are virtually an infinite amount of platforms in which we can post our opinions, and if that’s the case, then censorship is dead and there’s nothing to worry about.

Sure, she’s not obligated to provide a platform for feedback, but if the platform is there, I don’t see any reason not to use it. If she honestly feels that comments from trolls is going to negatively reflect her work, then she can simply moderate the comment section (not unlike many Youtube partners) and block comments from those making ignorant and sexist remarks.

Perhaps she’s making a statement that Youtube commenters are just a bunch of idiots and fear-mongers, and therefore censoring them is justified, but therein lays the problem with any form of censorship. What’s to stop her from making that same argument for anyone on twitter, Kickstarter, or Facebook?

One of the great things about Youtube is that it allows users and partners to give instant praise and/or criticism to any form of content in the form of ratings and comments. By denying them the ability to do so, they will be less inclined to seek out other means to express their opinions. (Granted, she did allow ratings on this video, unlike the other three in the series.)
