We've heard you loud and clear - negative reputation is back. Remember that it's still against the rules to complain about being downvoted - if you think someone's mass-downvoting posts or otherwise abusing the reputation system, DM a mod and we will take care of it.
... Damien is a real abuse victim?? even if there's the possibilty it's not sexual abuse by Dahvie. I truly understand what you're saying in regards to the repercussions of them lying about sexual assault , but again, the main takeaway is that they were a child. If Damien's in the limelight again, I blame it more on the bandwagoners who are new to the Dahvie Vanity shit for zeroing in on the Jessi Slaughter story and their main takeaway being "they claimed they were sexually abuse" and not "if there's a possibility that this bratty, dumb child lied about everything, there's still solid proof that these grown men harassed and abused her." Edit: Just to reiterate, I'm not in a huge disagreement with you. I just disagree with the original sentiment that we should invalidate anything Damien says when they are just as much of a victim.
Also, the Chris Hansen interview happened: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ujXVPl4q380
So Dahvie Vanity is trying to make a comeback which sparked a bunch of old advocates, ex fans and new bandwagoners to make new videos on his past sexual assault allegations. I notice a trend in these videos is that they'll bring up J*'s tweets calling Dahvie out for being a pedo, but conveniently leave out that J* rmade up and publicly remained friends with BOTDF. Luckily there's a few people that are finally calling this out, such as CreepShow Art
Okay but the main takeaway from this is, even if Damien's account of their sexual assault is unbelievable, they were still an eleven year old child getting bullied by grown ass nearly 30 yr olds and their rabid cult-like fanbase. I wish recent videos - basically people new to the drama and just jumping in for views - weren't using Damien's story of sexual assault as their "proof" because it invalidates a good chunk of the argument but the main focus should be is even if Damien grew up as a cringey child and came to be a cringey person - at the end of the day, they were still harassed by adults who never got punished. If anything, BOTDF were rewarded as heroes for bullying them because the "dun goof" meme extended outside the botdf fanbase. =/
Just weird that now this is happening. But I guess it makes sense since he's been on the low and he's fans have since aged up and realized how stupid they (both botdf and their fans) were being + the me too movement. Also what in god's name gave Dahvie the bright idea to try to make a comeback shortly after Me Too's prime
What's suddenly triggered the focus onto Dahvie lately? I've seen so many youtube videos on him pop up on my feed, but they seem to be rehashing a lot of the old evidence and drama. Side note: I love how they bring up Jeffree Star's old tweet calling Dahvie out for being a pedo and put him on a pedestal but conveniently leave out his apology and being friends with BOTDF months later lmao
this is very old news and depending on how much she's made she's not required to report it. she's an idiot but i'm going to give her the benefit of a doubt and say i don't think it's far enough to completely dodge the IRS knowing this story from years ago lol
it's an originally unintended movement ability therefore it's a bug and by extension an exploit. but I don't agree that's a harmful bug or bannable offense considering it's been in the game for... what? a year? Kinda seems like Blizzard thinks it's fine or might make it easier to execute like they did with extended GA
"I might look into it as a hobby because it seems fun" - Aria, aka "if this gets popular enough I'll jump right into it as another one of my many low effort money making outlets that I'll abandon when I either get lazy or no one pays attention to me"
IMO it's a dying trend too, since there were so many channels dedicated to that that have since sprung when they realized it's really easy to make low quality content for good views. I stopped actively watching them because a lot of the newer channel puts absolutely no effort into the videos. She seems to be doing niche NSFW topics on so that's good but I get the feeling she'll eventually ditch this when she realizes it's dying
looks like shane read everybody's feedback or that one tweet about how shane finessed everyone to buying a palette from someone who hasn't even done a proper makeup look with his palette https://www.youtube.com/post/Ugzk1lgSlc6BhEIzEPp4AaABCQ
i like how he included a clip of jeffree nearly crying over "woe is me i made myself look like an ass" instead of also including James and Tati's input (although I can see why they wouldn't want to be included in this)
in her defense it's probably because she doesn't have the same mindset as other youtubers that youtube is her primary career so she probably doesn't feel the need to constantly change to keep up with what kids want or to keep it fresh. dunno how she peaked at polish mountain if she's making smart business moves and sold out her first launch. her repetitive jokes can be cringe but her content is still interesting or at least nice to leave on in the background
