LGBTQ+ creators file lawsuit against YouTube for discrimination

LGBTQ+ creators file lawsuit against YouTube for discrimination

YouTube and its parent Google are being sue by a group of LGBTQ YouTubers. The lawsuit, filed Tuesday in California, alleges that since 2016, YouTube and Google have been engaged in ’unlawful content regulation, distribution, and monetization practices that stigmatize, restrict, block, demonetize, and financially harm the LGBTQ+ Plaintiffs and the greater LGBTQ+ Community.

If they stepped out of their lefty bubble for one second and listen to what Tim Pool has been saying all along, the suppression is affecting all non-corporate backed creators across the political spectrum. Goolag calls this elevating "authoritative" content such as CNN. But in order to do that they must throttle the far more popular independent creators. Of course in the age of victimhood everyone wants to think they are being uniquely targeted. No, they are just casualties in the death throes of the Blue Church desperate to maintain its status as the information gatekeeper.

Anti-LGBTQ+ sentiment... *Ahem* Rainbow YouTuber: All I'm saying is that men should be forced to have sex with trans-women, we should destroy the family model and implement socialism that favors the groups I want to be favored. Normal YouTuber: That's retarded. Rainbow: How dare you question my existence!!!! You're a homophobic transphobic Islamophobic racist bigot!!!!!!! WRRYYYYY!!!!!!! Normal: No, I'm not. I'm just saying that what you're proposing is retarded and makes no sense, and has nothing to do with your identity. Rainbow: MY RIGHTS! MY PUBLIC PLATFORM!! ALT-RIGHT!!! PRIVATE COMPANIES, I DEMAND THAT YOU DESTROY MY ENEMIES!!!! Normal: You aren't even trying to address my point. Rainbow: *mouth frothing*

Nothing is good enough. YouTube positively promotes it, but it is never enough.

From what I can see of it the suppression they are concerned about is not being able to get enough suppression of views they don’t like. Stepping away from the broader issue of freedom of speech (which is very important) there is an ongoing conflation by many on the left of politics they don’t like and hate speech which is also very dangerous. There appears to be a good case that discussion around trans (and other issues associated with gender and sexuality) is badly skewed by anybody speaking against the “progressive” narrative. Opposing views are routinely labelled as transphobic/homophobic etc or coming from a place of hate whilst at the same time a good case that the progressive demands may actually be very harmful to a lot of people who the issue relates to. It appears to be an ideological battle rather than an evidence based attempt to provide the greatest good. That appears to be the case in a lot of areas where emotive arguments are favoured over evidence based policy. I didn’t like Crowders comments but they were targeted at one individual who had openly called for shaming and intimidation of those he disagreed with. Crowder at worst gave home some of his own back.

Good. I hope YT finally realises what ungrateful prats these people are that they've been pandering to for the last few years. The red snake is finally eating its own tail.

YouTube is privately owned. therefore it's their platform and they can do whatever they want within reason. the parent thing makes sense. the uncensored hate speech is ok because of the first amendment. the users have the right to voice their opinions. they do not have a right to hurt you physically.
