EVERYONE’S FAVORITE YOUTUBER FINALLY EMBRACING HIS DESTINY AS A WHINY MEN’S RIGHTS ACTIVIST AND YELLING AT PEOPLE WHO MAKE THE PRODUCTS HE CONSUMES

I LOVE IT!

I like how Jontron says that he isn’t a savage while literally being the embodiment of a savage, using the n word, makes ablest comments, refusing to apologize.

Therein lies my issues with JonTron. I like him. I don’t want to see someone I enjoy act like a shit human who doesn’t give a damn about legitimate inequality but instead needs to paint a picture of how people are equally discriminated against in gaming. Because they aren’t. At all.

THEN, when Tim Schafer says “it’s a good reason for change” or something like that, JonTron completely goes back on his own opinion and says something akin to “let’s just enjoy the games, eh?”

No. Let’s not just enjoy the games. Let’s work on making the games one of the few mediums that gives a damn about all genders/races/people consuming it, eh? We still have access to this medium, just like YouTube. These are people you can still talk to, game devs, YouTubers, etc. We can still have an effect on where these mediums go, which is what separates it from many other artistic mediums which are basically in the control of groups of people making lots of money.

Why are people squandering this?

I do generally like Jon, and it seems more like ignorance than actual malice or hate, but all the evidence you need of how wrong he is is to look at virtually the same type of interaction he’s been “getting harassed by the SJWs” for when his former Game Grumps partner Arin does something similar. It’s night and day. One lashes out like a small child being told no and the other acknowledges the discomfort or outright pain they’re causing others and resolves to learn from it.

Anybody who disagrees with the idea that sexism hurts men is wrong, but anybody who uses that fact to dismiss just how much more it harms women is an asshole.
