What a fragile, hateful, entitled creature.
I have high hopes for this one.

Take a stance against censorship!
Comments are disabled.
The messed up part is I kind of agree with her here. She's abrasive, bigoted, and a bit of an idiot, but I don't think she should be silenced. I believe in the marketplace of ideas, and no matter how wrong your opinions are, I believe that you are entitled to speak them, and I believe that the proper response to bad ideas is debate, *never* censorship. Assuming there actually is a campaign to get her vids flagged and removed (and this isn't just part of her paranoid persecution fantasies, confusing organized resistance with outright censorship campaigns), I'd be more than happy to take her side, and I believe most of you guys would, too.
So I'm glad she decided to censor comments, because now I can go back to hating her without reservation.

Yes, the people you try to socially oppress will try to silence you, maybe if you used hoses and dogs you would be more successful.

They see me trollin'
God, I hope she's a troll.
she maintains and is aware of culture theory blogs.
@ Sudan no1,
She's every bit the attention whore that Jawsus was.
Chris Chan & Nic Bravo also both posted their 'intellectual property' online. Both of them enjoyed the firestorms that erupted. She's no different than anyone else who seeks to become "Internet Famous".

I apologize, but the title made a certain cartoon theme song go through my head with slightly different lyrics:
"TRANSWOMEN! BRODUDES IN DISGUISE!"
Again, I'm sorry. It just... happened.
p. good, but will unfortunately always live in the shadow of Pope Caius's "CISFORMERS - REALLY JUST SOME CARS"

I'm convinced that people who gripe about people disabling comments have never actually made videos on YouTube.
I had a channel awhile back where I put up some videos I shot at the International Balloon Fiesta and within maybe a week, some giant fucking flame war had broken out about how the "dirty spics" in New Mexico ruined the Fiesta. On and off for a few months there were bizarre random comments like "FUCK THIS GAY SHIT" and just all sorts of garbage that was nearly impossible to keep up with blocking or deleting, so eventually I just set it all to private and gave up. Seriously, folks...as insanely dumb as this girl is, I have no fucking problem whatsoever with her locking comments and if I ever made videos on YouTube on any subject, I would probably lock them too and, at minimum, only allow video replies.
Her video is about taking a stance against censorship.
If you're so offended by random internet strangers saying "fuck this gay shit" that you'd rather burn the whole thing to the ground, then I guess we can't stop you. It's dissapointing, but part of the freedom of "frontier living" here on the internet (where social contracts are loosely defined and largely unenforced) is that netizens are allowed to control the flow of information on their own little parcel of land. I can't make you declare the StanleyPain Homestead a free speech zone, and if you decide to digitally shoot all trespassers, then I guess the marketplace of ideas takes it all types.
But if you predicate your message on "I'm standing up for free speech, look how horrible it is that other people can't tolerate the existence my shit posts", then obviously you've got a moral obligation to extend that same tolerance to other people. Even if you support the moderating of others thoughts in principle, surely you can laugh at her for being a hypocrite?
Homer, you're as stupid as your namesake.

I hate to defend this woman but I'm not going to fault a woman for disabling the comments on Youtube.
That place is a cesspool. I've only gotten one comment on Youtube but I'd really prefer not having another. I don't actually give a fuck that you couldn't spank it to my home video, creepy random stranger. I also love it that all of her other videos got like 10 or 20 views, while the one that I was in got more than 1,000 because it had the word "spanking" in it. I was really glad when that number leveled off, because that was not my proudest moment.
