Thread: YouTube Block LGBT+ Content with New "Restricted Mode" Feature

    straight is ALSO a sexual orientation, yes, but it is still very allowed in the new system and videos using the words "straight" have been bypassing the filter constantly. Gay is literally the equivalent to straight in terms of being used in a non-sexual way to describe people. I would POSSIBLY get if it was "homosexual", because "heterosexual" is blocked too, but we are damn well kidding ourselves if in 2017 we think the legitimate term to describe someone who is into the same sex is immediately a TOO SEXUAL 4 KIDS term. My cousin, who is 9, says he likes boys and not really girls, and from my understanding from his parents, he knows nothing sexual and just knows how he feels. In the same way there are many kids who have little 'straight' relationships long before they learn anything about sex, the same goes for bi, lesbian, and gay kids.

    My favorite part of this is that these SAME PEOPLE who want this garbage censorship are the ones who laugh and roll their eyes when they see words like "aromantic or "heteromantic" on tumblr. That is literally the only way to describe yourself under this new system if you REALLY don't want ANY sexuality terms used infront of ya damn kids.

    stop giving corporations a free pass just because of some convenient excuse like a poorly executed filtering algorithm

    fact of the matter is that regardless of if this an algorithm issue or something more, they saw it as good enough to roll out in the first place. so they are still 100% at fault, no matter what the reason is

    Why are people still arguing about this

    YouTube said sorry and will change it

    Yes its a greedy org, but this is capitalism, there is no ethics or morals.

I'm assuming it's mainly for youngins who spend all their time on YouTube, and they're making sure what kids see is actually safe.
    again, the problem is more with the filter's existence itself. it's discriminatory toward a group of people (the LGBT community) with its mere presence. youtube, a site that has previously stated that they stand with the LGBT community yet suddenly out of the blue filter any videos having to do with even the simple word 'gay' is disgustingly discriminatory toward so many people. i can understand if you don't want your children to see sexual content - that's what it should be used for, but what is so wrong or unsafe about a gay person? i will never understand the homophobe point of view of 'yeah talk about a guy and girl having sexual relations with one another, but omg dont mention a girl and a girl kissing... that's B A D' it makes 0 sense lol.

    the filter poses a problem because not only does it put youtube in a sour light but it also has upset the LGBT video creators and made them feel unwelcome. and it promotes homophobia as well.

Soon enough you'll have all kids questioning their sexuality, when in reality, most kids are too young to actually truly understand their sexuality and view on love. Like.... you wouldn't explain how sex works to a kid, and sexuality is sorta on the same lines. The kid might have a gravitation towards certain people (say he's gay), but he doesn't know he's gay. Nothing will change the gayness. It won't change or hurt him if he waits, but it can hurt him if he learns too much too early, since, sexuality. It's more so because sexuality regardless of how bad it is, is sexuality. Kids don't need to be studying it. Period.
    if kids want to find out more about sexuality why should they be stopped
    are you going to stop kids who want to learn more about space, their culture or how to make a super cool braid? they dont Need to know that, we should protect their innocent brains from it !!!

    also kids can know their sexuality. kids see straight people everywhere from the moment they jump out of a vagina. why is it suddenly unnecessary and weird to let them watch lgbtq youtubers

And either way, giving a kid the sex-ed talk plus LGBT+ rundown is on the lines of as much to learn as a school course.

    The only way I can see the world changing completely and for more awareness and acceptance is by teaching this in more schools at an earlier age, and by teaching it in a way they won't be 'tainted' (sorry, but I can't think of a better term for it), resulting in sooner sex-ed talks, and the world reverting back to the ancient days when kids/teens could marry and start families. But I do agree, kids need to learn this stuff sooner. Modern society isn't perfect and clean though, and kids should at least enjoy their childhood without worrying about what gender they'll end up marrying with, or trying to get off a porn addiction.
    ?? no?? just take 15 minutes to explain what it means, that it is normal ecen tho there are gross homophobes and transphobes, give kids resources if they wanna find out more. it's not that hard.

    This year isn't a good year for LGBT. Trump undone Obama's executive order on the bathroom debate and has nominated Gorsuch to the Supreme Court (who has little to no respect). And a theater in Alabama refuses to screen Beauty and the Beast because of one character (which I find insensitive). Now Youtube is doing it with restricted mode.
    wait what lmao what character in beauty and the beast?? is it bc of the furry bc lgbtqF ppl are so Bad
    /s but seriously is there an lgbtq character And Dude Wow Alabama Great

And less of how I was taught and learned on my own about it. My parents sheltered me, which has basically resulted in me learning more and more about this stuff everyday through social media and online (the way no one should learn it tbh), and half I still don't get. It also doesn't help that my parents are homophobic/transphobic/lgbtphobic, as are quite a few people where I live from what I've noticed, so whatever I am or was is suppressed and replaced with the ideal of 'straight is normal.' Like I said, I think this is mostly a regional issue.

    On a side note, I wonder if the actual YouTube block doesn't exist or is stricter for certain countries?
    it exists in every language but might not work as well in them.

    Fair enough.
    Time for a less obnoxious signature which still works as an advertisement.

    YouTube, a company that claims to support the LGBT movement, should not be censoring LGBT content that has the right to be on YouTube. If it's not sexually explicit, it shouldn't be censored. LGBT awareness content is not sexually explicit.
    And remember that bad times...
    are just times that are bad.
