How about other academics who are also gamers? You know, hit both nails on the head.Desert Punk said:So only people who make shitty youtube videos are qualified to comment on her videos is what you are saying? Or is it women? Or women and white knights? Or what is her peer group that is allowed to be peer review her videos?Grey Carter said:You're missing the point there; deliberately I expect. Peer reviews require people from the same field with a reputation to uphold.
Because she claims to be a gamer, that makes gamers her peers.
I will be here for 30 seconds and then I will leave. I am just going to drop a reading list here, then go and buy more Ramen.
I needed to redownload some of my readings anyway.
Hell, if you want I could forward you some of my old essays from my first year.
By disabling the comments she did nothing whatsoever. It could be argued that she did people like yourself a favour. If the comment section was live it would be filled the the brim with crap. Like every other Youtube comment section. Anyone with anything to say says it better on other websites. Nothing of value has been lost.
Honestly, I do not think she should have released them through Youtube. At all. Its not the right media for what she is producing. However, she wanted to spread her ideas far and wide so that is the media she chose. Fair enough. But, considering she is trying to come across as a professional (Which she is), doing so would be significantly more difficult with a torrent of abuse beneath every single video.
Same with it being liked or not. It would just get bombed, it serves no purpose on her videos. Neither the comments, nor the like/dislike button, matter whatsoever.
If you have anything to say, say it somewhere other then Youtube. Because if its in the YT comment section, it will just get ignored.
Are you in a position to judge what she has made? No. Not really, No. Are you her "Equal"? No. Are you my equal, with regards to sociology or identity? No. Do you have my understanding of Race/Identity, have you written essays on the subjects. Of course you do not. Most people do not. The average Jo on youtube is just some 14 year old fuckwit.
Out of interest, do you regularly post on Youtube? Out of all the people here, who REGULARLY posts on youtube? Who here actually gives a damn about Youtube?
Hmmm, when I get back from shopping I think I will make a poll/thread about just that.
