The opening was PERFECT. (As was the rest of it to be honest.)

So lovely. The way you sang "they don't build love like that no more" was perfection. And you hit the high notes so well. Gah. Magnificent. The beat at the end was heartbreaking.

I love your videos and I love that you made this video. But I don't think it constitutes "dumping on him" to want him to step back from making YouTube videos. (That being his position of power, which he abused.) Although I agree that he shouldn't be harassed in return, I don't think there is any convincing argument against ignoring him until he goes away. I don't think we can pass his actions off as something he did in his "private life" when they so strongly impacted the lives of women and when it was his public position that gave him such an abusive power. Also, it is a public issue because consent is clearly something we need to be talking about since sexual assault/ manipulation is still such a prominent issue. When he has such strong authority over so many young viewers, I think it becomes necessary to let those people know if he abused his power.
And I am afraid I can't agree with your transcript argument at all. Although I agree that we should just stop watching his videos, there was merit in transcribing (especially) his first few videos so that people could use them to form an argument against his presence on YouTube without having to directly support him.
And I think there is also merit in people being a little obsessed with his videos. It's nice and dandy to say "just ignore it" but it also completely undermines what he is doing right now, which is continuing his abuse of power by maintaining his privileged position without doing anything to accurately acknowledge his wrongs. Again, he is misleading people, and I fear for everyone (especially the young women) who think that this is okay.
Also, again, to jump back a bit, the phrase "dumping on him" really implies that he is a victim here which I think is really problematic. Alex is focusing on how he suffered through the loss of his friends and his job/position (although the latter is debatable) and, while certainly he has lost a lot and is going through a hard time, considering him a victim completely undermines the fact that he made multiple women victims and that he has done nothing to accurately acknowledge that he did so.
I'm typing all of this on my phone, so it probably makes no sense. But, again, I love your work and your videos, Mickeleh, but I find your middle-road approach here concerning because I think it, probably unintentionally, undermines the severity of the situation and the fact that we need to keep talking about this stuff even if we feel like we are just repeating the same old words.
The fact that Alex is still making videos and that people are traumatized by them is something that we can't argue against. The only way to prevent things like this from happening is to talk about why they shouldn't happen.
