So here's a weird thing. YouTube's "top comment" system promotes comments that get discussions going. So, of course, most the top comments on this video (at least on my feed, everyone's is different) are all very controversial and heated and, frankly, terrible and gross and make me fear for humanity. 

Healthy, thoughtful, intelligent comments don't get huge, rousing, angry discussions going like blatant make-me-a-sandwich misogyny does. So here's a thought. How about, in response to this comment, we all leave thoughtful, constructive comments about why this video is wrong. And keep in mind, when leaving those comments, that many people have many different worldviews and they really may actually not understand what's wrong with this video.

I'll start, according to California law, what's happening in this video is sexual assault. So...that's definitely bad. 

Here's another...these women do not know who this guy is...he is a stranger, and he's touching them. His motivation is not apparent to them and thus is irrelevant. 

Oh, another. When the girls smile and laugh and hug him, it's not because they think it's a cool joke. They've been placed in an extremely uncomfortable situation and the fastest way out of it is to be submissive...this isn't a male/female thing, it's just a power thing. 

Oh! Wait...more...my personal least favorite part is that the power dynamic of our society tends to be men exercising power over women. There are lots of men who still believe that their role is to dominate women and that the role of the woman is to initially resist but ultimately submit to that domination. This dynamic is the source of lots and lots of women having had really really terrible things done to them for a very long time.

Promoting and embodying that dynamic (whatever the cause) is a bad thing to do in front of a bunch of  young impressionable people. Which is what is happening every moment this video is still online. 

If you don't have a constructive comment to add, please just tell me what you had for dinner so this comment will be promoted by YouTube's bat-shit crazy "Top Comment" algorithm.

Oh hell yeah, this is what I'm talking about. Feels like a deep Weird Al cut from the late 80s, so glad this is happening right now...

It's tooootalllyyy stressful...I mean, I know that I needed heroes growing up though, so maybe it's just something that needs to happen...so for the people who need me to be their hero I just want to make sure I'm not letting them down, which is a huge responsibility. 

I guess it's even more than that, I want to make sure they understand that I'm a person and that doing cool things and becoming someone else's hero is possible...and much more valuable than trying to become me or become friends with me because I'm just an over-worked dork who's still trying to convince people I'm worthwhile since I spent my formative years being told I wasn't. 

I want to be clear that you can look up to me, but not because I have super powers. I yell at my wife. Sometimes I get caught looking at the waitresses cleavage. Sometimes I get drunk and accidentally say something dumb that makes them cry. And I've only managed to have so much success because I keep trying things despite having failed a bunch...and I've only been able to do that because I was born a semi-attractive white man in an upper-middle class household. 

People ask "If I come to VidCon, will I get to meet my favorite creator?" The answer is...yes, if your favorite creator is Nathan or Anna Akana or Meghan Tonjes or Gunnarolla or Chescaleigh...you'll get to walk right up to their ass and give them a high five. But if you have the same favorite creator as 20 million other people...well...probably not. 

I think a lot of people watch creators because they have lots of viewers...they want to be into the same things as their friends, they see the huge numbers, so they know it must be a big deal. And the bigger a deal it seems the more it starts to feel like they're something completely separate and valued on a different level from normal people. My hope for YouTube was always that there would be as many people watching channels the size of this one as there are watching channels like Pewds...and I honestly think if you add up all of the smaller channels, it turns out that is still the case...which is awesome. 

Yeah, it's definitely trending in the other direction, but compared to the last 50 years of media, it's orders of magnitude more diverse and distributed, which is great news.
