Youtube is hurting content creators once again

Specifically LGBT videos. Recently a large percentage of Anti-LGBT commercials have been playing on LGBT videos.

not to mention the video is instantly demonetized if it contains any words regarding LGBT people
but youtube has always been screwing over creators, it’s nothing new

Could you elaborate? I thought YouTube was very gay-friendly.

Someone actually tested this out. "Transgender" in the title automatically demonitizes your video. So inclusive and with the times, huh YT.

the article says youtube uses machine learning. im assuming so many lgbt videos were flagged that the system learned to instantly demonetize them. it's not like a youtube meeting took place where they devised a plan to end lgbt activity on youtube. no that's stupid. a lot of people nowadays are pro-lgbt, and a big company like google looking anti-lgbt will make them lose community fast. why would they want that? they want people to speak out against it so they can fix it.

im no expert either but if you think about it, youtube is massive. billions and billions of videos are on that site. and their staff is only so big. sure thousands of employees sounds like a lot, but when hundreds of hours of content are uploaded every day and there are many many issues and bugs they have to address, it might be hard to break apart the algorithm and find exactly where it's going wrong. but i don't know either. maybe they are lazy, but they aren't doing it on purpose.

yes, but that very same system flags the words "transgender" or "gay" as NSFW content, and deems them as something that should be restricted, even if the content is aimed at minors who look to the platform for help

Yeah and why wouldn’t you have a team dedicated to fixing the machine? I understand that there’s a lot to go through, but it doesn’t make any logical sense as to why no one has fixed it.

despite what people may think google is not a big evil corporation. it may sound hard to believe that they arent purposely attacking lgbt videos during pride month (which they celebrated). yes they should fix it, youtube's system is definitely ****ed up and broken, but a lot of time, trial & error goes into coding something to not act stupid. maybe their priorities aren't in order. but it is easier said than done. people need to stop demonizing youtube as this terrible website that wants to censor its users (that they make money off of). demonetizing people's videos and trying to get them to quit is the last thing they want lol

Actually, considerint all their takedowns of educational channels or anything involving firearms(not that I'm into that but apparently just channels about safe use), I'm not sure how true that is. It seems they gladly would watch "problem"(read "News outlet wrongly reported them once and made us look bad") channels go away so they can focus on their bigger names who are immune to these practices even if they do horrible **** all the time.

I may be completely missing the point right now because I'm super tired ... but why does YouTube censor LGTB+ content in the first place? I heard that they're flagging anything containing that content as explicit. Um ... why?

we arent calling google evil or anything, chill out lol
we're calling out that youtube, a division of google, is doing ****ty stuff, we have no beef with google
its no secret that youtube is trying to censor its users, they want to maximize profit for them, regardless of how ****ty their sources are, while bringing down smaller or "problematic" channels

Idk for sure, but if it's considered NSFW then maybe for "sexualization"
Whatever the reason, it's wrong.
(Note talking about videos that are not purposely sexual in nature)

Because Youtube's system is actually overall garbage and no one really seems to want to fix it. Like some people's more actually explicit stuff I.E. more sexual things that probably shouldn't be on the platform to begin with, are pretty much monetized, while people trying to be positive and educate people on LGBT stuff or is actually LGBT themselves are being demonetized.

lol yeah youtube celebrated pride month for the $$$$. Someone publicly supporting LGBT+ means absolutely nothing, especially if they're being accused of hurting the same people they're benefiting from.

It's not an accident they demonetize things that have to do with transgender individuals, and it's not a mistake. The general opinion on trans people is that they are nsfw or it's not something kids should be exposed to. They want these people off of Youtube, they want gun owners off of Youtube, of course they do. Content that doesn't pull in the extremely ad friendly 10mil+ views isn't content they want on their platform.

I hope you didn't take this in the direction that I hate gay people, I don't. I'm just saying people who say they are afraid of homosexuals aren't actually afraid of them, they're just doing that to be pricks

That's also wrong. It's not uncommon to have people who act like they constantly have to "fight the gay agenda" because they're in the closet themselves but want to repress it any way they can. Usually for religious motivations or just thinking gay guys aren't true men.

The really sad thing is, there internal hate among the community.
Even a youtuber who gave transgender people a spotlight on her channel for a little while, is severely transphobic herself along with her subscribers.


Also the biphobia, I may not be bi (Except for some FE characters, but that's more "Together because of war and we need more soldiers so let's make an OP baby together and you seem alright" I dont have FE Husbandos outside of Awakening and Fates. ) but biphobia seriously needs to stop.
