Laci Green vs ThunderF00t - what the hell is going on?
« on: October 07, 2016, 06:13:42 PM »
Suddenly my phone is getting a bunch of notices of videos related to some sort of spat between them?

I was hoping somebody knew without watching numbers of videos such as this one

I only know of the spat between Laci Green and Philip De Franco. Im guessing thunderfoot is criticising her on that event.

1) Laci reports a video on youtube for copyright infringement, even though the video falls comfortably within the realm of fair use
2) When pressed on "why", she states that the person used a picture of her in the thumbnail and thus was "stealing her image to make money"
3) People, including Phillip point out that Laci has used images of other people in her thumbnails again and again.
4) Phillip makes the connection that the person Laci reported was making a video disagreeing with her, and that was the true motivation
5) Laci makes a video saying she is above youtube drama and anyone criticising her is a drama queen alt-right person that just wants to attack her. She never addresses her hypocrisy.

My bias against Laci might show through my take of events.

Just watched it, Man, thunderf00t makes some occasional good points, but why does he choose to present himself like a dipshit frat boy like this?
Neways, it was about the thing I mentioned before, plus TF reiterating all his old arguments against feminism and the like.

I've learned that I'm glad I don't know who any of these people are.
I suppose if I'm going to try to keep up with various social forces, I need to start browsing YouTube, but... I don't wanna.

I enjoy it, for whatever reason. I dont enjoy celebrity drama, because I feel to detached from it, but im a pretty big user of youtube, so I feel connected in a way to these people. So its interesting and intriguing to me.

That's thunderf00t?! I couldn't take him for more than about 30 seconds and I had to bail. I mean, I figured for all of his notoriety he might be more.... presentable on camera.

I believe in previous videos he was more presentable. Did not look quite the crazy man.

You're talking about a guy who made his name "debunking" simplistic creationist shit and who then switched to anti-feminism because it made him more $$$. Did you expect Ryan Gosling here?

Had to google Laci Green but I actually had tons of MRA content showing up in my feed because of some feminist channels Im subscribed to.
It took a short while but by going through my suggested videos and clicking 'not interested', I was able to pretty much rid my suggestions of drama videos.

Alright, I've seen laci green before but didn't know her name.  I find her annoying so when some posts one of her videos on FB, I don't watch.  This is the first time I've seen or heard thunderfoot, he is equally annoying.

This is why skepticism can't have nice things.
