    "When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with humility comes wisdom."
    — Proverbs 11:2, The Bible
    So I've been thinking about it for a long time and I might as well spill my mind out on to you guys.
    I hate how I am and how I've been acting recently. I'm changing.
    Yes, I know it's me that does this, but it's impulsive. And I'm not talking about being more confrontational.
    Recently I've been increasingly bringing being a homosexual up in inappropriate situations. I noticed it first when I would make gay jokes with my friends when something they said was suggestive. It was funny at first, but now it's just a habit. There's finding humour in yourself and there's exploiting one feature of yourself repeatedly for attention. Guess what this one is.
    I want to stop, but I just forget every time and bring it up.
    It wasn't like this even a year ago, and back then it was even worse, I thought I was transgender for a little while because there was a little bit of lingering confusion around puberty.
    So why am I bringing it up so often? I don't know. I suspect it may be that it's the initial rush of thinking "I'll tell the world", despite being annoyed by that precise behaviour. Another suspect could be the increasingly strong political polarisation based on percieved (whether true or not) injustices to such people. I may be hanging around the wrong people, even.
    But what if it isn't?
    What if I stay like that? I don't want to, I don't think that it's particularly important to 92% of, well, really anything. It's more annoying than helpful, relevant, or dare I say interesting. And yet I'm afraid that it will happen.
    And that people will congratulate me on being so strong, when in reality that couldn't be closer to the truth.
    And guess what doesn't help?
    The community. The community I ever so loathe and wish gone. The one I'm not and will never willingly be a part of.
    I have seen so much bigotry from the community heterosexuals and transsexuals alike ought to be afraid of us. I realise that individuals are individuals and all, but associating yourself entails accepting the public perception as your own. Why do you think people join leather jacket & mutton chop biker gangs, for instance? To knit? No, it's to look to other people as hardened and cool on their bikes.
    So at some point the people who willingly associate themselves with this behaviour ought to take responsibility, because they see this and think "yes, this is what I am."
    The community that says that your opinion is more valid if you have a rainbow flag somewhere on your profile.
    Plastering the rainbow loses me points from you.
    And yet. . .I'm months away from plastering it as my avatar. Taking the little red pill of ideas doesn't seem to work.
    I think it's a good idea to quit while I'm ahead. Get off the Internet for a month or two, and see if I get better. If not, then I'm afraid it is permanent. If it is, one more post. If not, I come back after just a little while. You wouldn't even know the difference.

    About all this "AgeGate" nonsense, I actually do agree with the blocking since children are impressionable. I'm not going to say there's a homosexual agenda—I haven't told a kid to be gay today, not yet anyway—but children could theoretically see that and think "Well I'm not into X, so I must be Y!", since sexuality doesn't develop until puberty.
    I'm not at all saying it's the fault of people who are openly LGBT on YouTube, except I sort of am. It's the responsibility of both the parent and the people who make the videos an equal amount, since parents can't be monitoring their children all the time. When there are 10, 15 minute videos of gay people just kissing on YouTube, there's a point where it stops being so outrageous. It does slightly fall on the creators themselves to explain to possible child audiences that what they're interested in isn't necessarily what the child is interested in, just because the child doesn't like X.

    A young child probably wouldn't fully understand the talk, and even if they did parents are reluctant to talk openly about homosexuality and how rare it is more importantly, leading a child to possibly believe that it's just a normal thing you can do, when it's a rare birth chance that only affects 4% of the population.A young child probably wouldn't fully understand the talk, and even if they did parents are reluctant to talk openly about homosexuality and how rare it is more importantly, leading a child to possibl...See more

    Parents are going to blame media for their own ineptitude no matter what they do and the soccer moms want to get rid of anything even remotely suggestive, really we should just be glad the child online privacy act thing is their biggest success in censoring the internet after what happened to cartoons in the 70s or the whole comic book code authority debacle.Parents are going to blame media for their own ineptitude no matter what they do and the soccer moms want to get rid of anything even remotely suggestive, really we should just be glad the child onlin...See more

    Really? You think that they'll sit down and take education like a good little kid, when their tween idol gives them the opposite point of view?

    In 1979, following the huge success of Star Wars and the reasonable success of Star Trek the Motion Picture before that, Mickey Mouse (presumably) jumped down from his sinister office, frothing at the mouth that he too wanted a space movie. So, they made one. To the uninitiated, the "Black Hole" was Disney's first PG rated film, and their most expensive to that point. It was revolutionary in technique and scope. It is also boring as hell, and ridiculously stupid- to degrees that make the "Phantom Menace" look sensible. Alas, what you see here, the mighty USS Cygnus, is the best part of the whole show. Supposedly there's a remake in the works, but with Disney a little more involved running the "real" Star Wars, and now having to bail itself out of the latest "Zootopia" fiasco, we'll see if another Black Hole emerges.In 1979, following the huge success of Star Wars and the reasonable success of Star Trek the Motion Picture before that, Mickey Mouse (presumably) jumped down from his sinister office, frothing at the mouth that he too wanted a space movie.

    According to my research, that's merely why YouTube switched focus from viewcount to time watched and hid tags. But...wait a second, if that mostly just applied to video response abuse, why didn't they bring those features back when they got rid of video responses? I mean ok, I get why they didn't bring back the favoring views over watch time but hiding tags should be optional... It does look like these changes did lead to overall disuse of the response feature though https://techcrunch.com/...-click-through-rate/According to my research, that's merely why YouTube switched focus from viewcount to time watched and hid tags.
