Asmodai, do you want to know why no one is debating that parents should be more involved and careful about letting their kids use the internet? The article was literally about that... instructing how to use the content control filters on youtube. Are you too busy being "so fucking brilliant" to even read it and realize that?
What Beamer actually called you out for is your propensity to label people as snowflakes and SJW's in order to make yourself feel better... and that basically being a giant red flag for an opinion being about as deep as a puddle of water. He couldn't have been more accurate. Example #2: Timmeh
So please go on and keep rambling about exactly what the article was intended to address. You've been to this page 3 times now and still not accidentally read the thing you are commenting on. No one is laughing at you... I promise.
I guess you missed this part of the article while you were climbing up on your high horse... =)
"It's perfectly legitimate for a parent to believe that something called Peppa Pig is going to be Peppa Pig," she says. "And I think many of them have come to trust YouTube... as a way of entertaining your child for ten minutes while the parent makes a phone call. I think if it wants to be a trusted brand then parents should know that protection is in place."
The company also suggested that parents use the YouTube Kids app, which is available for mobile phones and tablets, and turn on "restricted mode" which limits flagged content. It can be found at the bottom of any page on the YouTube site, but cautions that "no filter is 100% accurate".
It is not perfectly legitimate to trust anything on the web, you always need to do your due diligence. Don't toss the kid in front of Youtube when you want to make a fucking phone call, problem solved. Maybe we should just all click those emails claiming to be from our bank saying that our account is overdrawn and please address immediately... /eyeroll
As for propensity, I've used the term snowflake in exactly one comments section. Beamer has his tits in a twist over gender neutral post comments and we've had very little to do with each other before that. As trends go, that's a pretty small sample size. Reeks of oversensitivity, dare I say 'snowflake-ism', when an opinion (and not even a really offensive one imo) causes people to burst in to indignant, self righteous flames... =)
