Ive created a poll that I'd love for fans of my channel to share their view on what I should do a video on:
Philosophical Vegan Forum

SJW stuff, definitely. I don't know if you've caught any of my posts on the subject in the past year. It's going kind of crazy, and some vegans are trying to link veganism to that stuff. I don't agree with the opposite extreme either, of course, it seems like most of the internet has decided there are only two options. We have the Trump Vegans, and we have the SJW Vegans... not much in the middle. It would be good to bring some Sanity to the discussion.
It's easy, yet hard to describe what an SJW is, so I'll give a few characteristics if you aren't familiar.TheVeganAtheist wrote:Could you explain what you understand SJW is all about and why people seems to be so polarized by it?

Yes, since the SJW position doesn't. If you want proof, just go to Buzzfeed's YouTube channel.TheVeganAtheist wrote:From what ive gathered, many prominant atheists, and youtubers are anti-SJW. Is there merit to this opposition?

Intersectionality deals both with the privileged/unprivileged false dichotomies (in reality, people have statistically different [not inherently superior] privileges, even along perceived "racial" divides, calling one privileged is not useful or accurate and it just fuels racial tension), and the idea that all of these 'oppressions' are institutional and linked to a single cause (patriarchy) which must be dismantled in order to break down all systems of privilege.
The concept of "white privilege" is in itself a racist and race-baiting idea if you do not pair it with the equal and opposite ideas that other "races" also have their own privileges, and whites have disadvantages as well. Much like the idea of "male privilege" is sexist if not paired with the understanding of female privilege and the drawbacks males face too.
Of course unlike gender (for which there is serious evidence of biological difference), any dealing with race is probably counter-productive. The real evidence lies with socioeconomic and cultural factors, not genetics (you'll be hard pressed to find controls strong enough to legitimize race realism).
Yes, but I think some of them take it too far and kind of misrepresent feminism; there's a tendency to cherry pick the worst examples. Thunderfoot has some good videos on the feminism/SJW subjects, and he's probably the most balanced, but he's also unfair with and occasionally takes out of context Anita Sarkeesian (I don't like her, but it's still kind of dubious to do that).TheVeganAtheist wrote: From what ive gathered, many prominant atheists, and youtubers are anti-SJW.

oh, ive lost a lot more then that. I expected as much since I went a year without producing any new videos and a lot of the subscribers I gained that year, probably subscribed to whatever video they had watched and not viewed much of my content.
I was referring to the JaclynGlen video specifically, but yes, it is to be expected. I know this one guy who had 85,000 subs, didn't upload for 6 months, then it went down to 80,000.
I'm pretty sure that's a factor. Personally, I believe that they deserve to be smashed across the face repeatably with a piece of heavy mining equipment.
Yeah, I just checked your socialblade. While you do gain a few subs, more people unsub causing an unbalance. You have gotten nearly 300,000K views in the past month, so that's good!TheVeganAtheist wrote: ↑Sat Feb 11, 2017 10:48 pmThe day I released my first video of the year I lost 382 subscribers, and then 59 the next day.
When I released my second video I lost 176 subscribers.
When I released the most recent video I lost 144
I essentially have not gained any subscribers since I started creating videos 3 weeks ago.
