Furthermore, why would Twitch bestow authority on somebody whose first prerogative is to slander the platform’s community and viewers? Why would FerociouslySteph want to get involved with an institution that would give a platform to a community of “white supremacists?”To understand what kind of policy changes someone like this might have on an institutional basis, let’s take a look at one more statement coming out of a clip from FerociouslySteph’s live-stream: “The only way to have a level playing field at the highest level of play is to not have voice chat…voice chat is unfair, period.”
The subtle bigotry of low expectations rears its head again, as it seems that FerociouslySteph is convinced that feminine voices are unable to communicate on the same level that masculine voices can. Anyone who has played multiplayer games knows how essential voice communication is to competitive games, and how crippling it would be to gut such an essential and generally-fun feature from gaming. Cultural marxism seems to infect many aspects of life today, thanks to the efforts of the Left, but who would have guessed that “voice privilege” would be the next thing that the Left aims down their sights at? Twitch later clarified the specific role of Twitch’s “Safety Advisory Council,” noting that the members of the council are not official Twitch Staff, in a frantic attempt to cover this PR disaster. Twitch is a massive platform (averaging 15 million active users per day in 2018), and its cultural impact reaches far and wide, particularly among young people. The more opportunities that the Left has to insert its oppression olympics worldview into cultural institutions, the stronger the Left’s influence becomes. Within this system—sooner or later—transgender deer-people are making careers out of their leftist activism.
