A Content Creator is NOT Responsible for their Audience

I will say that this is in direct response to our favorite little uninformed kid who thinks that she knows how the world works, Milo Stewart, but the reality is that I’ve heard this talking point all around the SJW watercooler of videos, and it’s time that somebody made a response that isn’t full of emotional rhetoric.  For you see, that’s what the SJW videos on the subject are – emotional conjecture that leads them to think that they’re right.  There’s a flaw in that thinking that I honestly want to address, to my audience of nobody in the SJW circlejerk.  However, if some of you maybe think there’s something to the point that a content creator is responsible for the actions of their fans, this is for you.

The origins of this concept have come from the fact that there are now a plethora of anti-SJW YouTube personalities who make what they call “roasting videos” (they’re not.  They’re response videos.  And this isn’t a new thing.  These videos have been around for as long as I’ve been watching YouTube) toward people that they disagree with.  These videos take clips of what people say and reply to them.  Overall, these are very negative responses.  After all, there was that wonderful quote by Milo Stewart that put her on the radars of everyone who has replied to her –

All white people are racist, all men are misogynistic, all cis people are transphobic. The majority is always biased against the minority.

People will call it “victim-blaming,” but the reality is that a statement like that is going to understandably get some negative responses.  Maybe Milo doesn’t get why people find this a problem.  Her two biggest influences are a two YouTubers, on a racist bitch and the other a black nationalist called Uhuru.  It’s obvious that a level-headed examination of the culture she lives in not what she’s getting.  But when you make declarative statements about people’s prejudices and say that everyone has them, regardless of personality or upbringing, it’s going to understandably get some people riled up.

SJWs who end up becoming very well-known in a negative way often do not react well to this.  Milo is but one.  There are plenty of SJW responses that they make to being responded to where the first thing they do is blame the person who made that response for the reaction that their fans have, going to the person’s channel and then going after their videos.  While there are plenty of trolls in the bunch, I refuse to believe that there aren’t people who would like nothing better than to have a civil discourse about their disagreement.  For as much as I find Milo Stewart an ignorant little pup, I would love to sit down with her and hash out her problem with all these people who she clearly has taken no time to get to know.  But all of this insane digression has a point.

Those who create content are not responsible for what people do with that content.  If I write a post where I say that Anita Sarkeesian is really dumb and her views are unrepentantly ignorant of gaming and those who consume it, does that make me responsible for when one of my fans says something negative to her?  No.  I put the content out there.  I have never and will never encourage violence against anyone or even harassment.  When I say that someone is dumb, that’s a personal opinion.  I don’t go on to their channel and rail on every video.  I troll people on Twitter, but it’s usually just little jabs poking fun.  I’m not the kind of person who gets mad easily.  Granted, if I ever was face-to-face with Uhuru, I would have some words for that little effeminate piece of shit that are most unkind.  He is a terrible person, and his views on the world are morally disgusting.  Not to mention his actions are juvenile, such as when he want to a convenience store and made a giant ass of himself just so he could bait the cops into attacking him.  That was just pathetic, and it’s a testament to the cops involved that they just tried to talk to the little whelpand learn what his problem is.

Milo, I know that you’ll never read this.  Your echo chamber is so firmly closed that you probably have me one a block-list.  But no one who makes a response video to you is responsible for the actions of their fans.  Unless they are telling their fans to hunt you down and murder you, it’s not their fault if their fans troll you.  I’m sorry, but that’s just the way it is.  If you don’t like what people have to say to you in the Comments, then you can mod.  Or you can close your comments and ratings down entirely.  Or you can do what I do and let whoever comment and don’t even pay attention.  I don’t read the comments my YouTube channel gets.  I don’t have a cancer fetish.  To the other SJWs who want to make this argument, think long and hard about that.  After all, plenty of SJW supporters have doxxed, harassed, or in the case of Zoe Quinn, instigated trolling of those who they disagreed with (Google the incident with Candace Owens).  It’s a slippery slope to start going down, which is why I don’t do that.

Until next time, a quote,

“Being a victim is totally in vogue right now.” – TJ Kirk

Peace out,
