Anonymous said: hi there~ I think that immortalHD wasn't even really talking about actual minorities, there was a game that he had played with a few friends where their characters were actual crab people. I can't think of the game off the top of my head right now though. I think that the person who replied to him took things way out of context and forgets that he's talking about video games 98% of the time. besides, you're right, there's no misgendering there so maybe they were trying to pick a fight?

Hi,

First: I think you are right, but wrong at the same time ;) Yes, it is a reference to that game where they were “crab people”, which is a reference to South Park btw. but it is also a reference to the journalism who tries to push minorities in video games. That’s why he is a funny entertainer. He is combining these things to make a funny statement, and to state his opinion at the same time.

edit: and I learned, that fedoras are fashion for bronies who happen to be male. But, well, I guess that person could look up some photos of non-male persons with fedoras to feel better. But yeah it’s obvious that the person is extreme and kinda wants the fight. But I feel sorry for them in a way.

SORRY LONG POST

So this happened and I want to talk about it.

The first thing you have to understand is that ImmortalHD has his own opinion. He thinks it is senseless to point out that there are not enough minorities in Games. He cares about the games and thinks it will not make the Games better. And he likes to make jokes. So he made a joke primarily about this journalism.

In my opinion: it’s good to have the discussion about minorities in games. It’s good to point it out. But on the other hand, if you tell devs, that they “have to” make games with certain characters, it will hurt the creativity and with this the process of making Art.

Second: In respect of any gender identity I will use “they” as a genderneutral singular pronoun because of the lack of a better one.
This person is exactly doing what he fights against. They want equality in gender identity, but they “put down” the ones they are not in. In my opinion this is highly poisonous behaviour for the greater good. People will not take you seriously becasue of that and just find more reasons to be against equality. On their blog @goldfishsnacks ( http://goldfishsnacks.tumblr.com/ ) they are directly saying that cis-people are not welcome for fighting for equality for transgenders (for, for, for - idk how to say it better) so they are banning people from their group because of their gender identity. These are extremist-behaviours and most people don’t like extremists, when you don’t change your behaviour, you will not change anything for the good, you will just make people hate you and thats just sad for all the transgender people who are actually trying to to make things right.

For everyone who is reading this: Harassing is bad. Don’t harass this person, be better.

Third: How exactly did ImmortalHD misgender them? He said “you are putting words in my mouth” - no gender. He said “sure accomplished a lot here”. Not even a pronoun. And *tips fedora* looks for me like a stylish way to leave a conversation (opinion). I really don’t get it.

on a more personal note: I don’t know if you are even interested in a serious debate. It doesn’t seem like it, when I read your blog. I’m sorry for your health-condition at the moment though. It’s good to fight for equal rights, it’s okay to focus on one group. But don’t put down other groups. Everyone deserves equal rights and freedom of Speech/Art is one. That’s my opinion. It’s okay to point out if something can be problematic, like ImmortalHDs joke, but cut out the social justice bullshit.

Peace.

"I firmly believe in small gestures: pay for their coffee, hold the door for strangers, over tip, smile or try to be kind even when you don’t feel like it, pay compliments, chase the kid’s runaway ball down the sidewalk and throw it back to him, try to be larger than you are— particularly when it’s difficult. People do notice, people appreciate. I appreciate it when it’s done to (for) me. Small gestures can be an effort, or actually go against our grain (“I’m not a big one for paying compliments…”), but the irony is that almost every time you make them, you feel better about yourself. For a moment life suddenly feels lighter, a bit more Gene Kelly dancing in the rain."

A very nice Post by geoff from RoosterTeeth about Youtubehate or in other Social Medias. I like how they handle it: With comedy! And I’m glad that they don’t feel bad because of all that shit that happens in comments.

kootraa:

What is wrong? People have been shitting on him for no god damn reason that’s what! Now time for many people’s favorite, rant time.

These tweets were sent to him.

He saw them. AND OF COURSE, AS ANYONE WOULD IF THEY WERE TOLD THIS BULLSHIT, HE GOT OFFENDED. 

I mean, “you are the type of gamer that wonder how to play when there are instructions right in front of you.” You know what? This is calling him fucking stupid, when Seamus is the complete opposite. He’s fucking smart. LIKE REALLY SMART. And I don’t know about anyone else, but, I like when people do that. Especially when the creatures do it. They eventually find out how to play without reading the rules. It’s entertaining to watch them fuck up. That’s one of the reason they make videos. To make people smile and laugh.

"If it wasn’t for us you would walk into traffic." NO. JUST NO. It’s never funny to joke about that shit.  Sure even if he did have bad times before youtube or whatever, BAD TIMES PASS. He would live happy, he would live stress free. He uploads close to 10 videos A DAY. GIVE HIM A BREAK.

And I absolutely fucking hate when people do this. H A T E  I T.
These little shits DO NOT HAVE TO DO THIS.

 Dan could live happily without youtube.
Jordan could live happily without youtube.
So can James.
So can Eddie.
So can Nick.
So can Steven.
So can Aleks.
AND SO CAN FUCKING SEAMUS.

They do this to be happy and to make people smile. It’s one of the things they fucking enjoy. So take advantage of the fucking time while we have them

I would say this is a bit much anger only because some troll posted stupid things, but I agree with most of the things you say. I hate stuff like that, too and it makes me feel bad when I see what they have to live with.

I’m pretty sure their lives are better with youtube than without and they couldn’t do it without their fans, BUT they deserve it. They are working hard and they have the talent of entertaining people and are probably making people smile every day.

Ok you see this guy here

his name is seamus o’doherty aka SSoHpkc.

and recently hes been getting a lot of shit whether it be on his comment section on youtube or his twitter etc,

for example:

This shit really pisses me off , the man uploads about 10 videos a day and who knows how many a week , he does not deserve shit from so called fans for any reason whatsoever.

Ive noticed that this is really getting to him and i think its time we let him know how much us fans really care and love him. So whether it be on his twitter or youtube comments just send him something nice, a heart <3 ,or just tell him how good hes doing because if we are not careful i have a feeling we are going to lose him for another 3 months and thats something i dont want to see happen.

so guys come on show him some seamoose love <3 

#loveforseamus

I think Kristafa is a troll account. The person’s only goal is to piss him off or to make him feel bad. Its a good idea just to block him. We love you Seamus.

It really hurts to think that we make these amazing people feel like this. These people make my life worth living and I get so mad that people don’t treat them like human beings.

Seamus has a huge talent in making people feel bad. In many kinds of circumstances.

I mean, we didn’t do anything, but we feel bad for him.

I really don’t think he gets more hate than other youtubers, but he can not ignore it. It reminds me of what Totalbisquit wrote on his reddit.

I don’t say it is a bad thing, but I don’t know how we can help him/them.
