something tells me
that some people have more constructive responses to criticisms of the treatment of women on youtube
I really enjoy Becoming Youtube. But there is seriously no way I’d have ever seen his content if I wasn’t interested in watching vlogs and continued to watch them frequently.
.Kayley Hyde was part of a channel that initially sparked my interest in watching vlogs (fiveawesomegirls). Which I watched for years. So rather indirectly he got my views because I watched her.
It is so arrogant to assume that he has inspired more people when she is his predecessor and laid down a lot of work in the vlog community.
5AG was a big important thing. And it didn’t only inspire women. Remember Charlie, Alex and even Tyler Oakley? They all honed their vlogging skills on channels ripped off of 5AG (fiveawesomeguys and fiveawesomegays). Now 5AG is a vlogbrothers type of format for sure, but they still pulled much more directly from 5AG.
So sad >_<
I know I’m late to this but I just watched a clip of the pannel and saw the big hullabaloo.
