I just had this thought and now you all have to suffer with me

Okay so by all accounts Alexander Hamilton flipping l o v e d kids. This man was baby crazy. His kids, other people’s kids. He would get down on the floor with them and sit by their bedsides when they were sick and just generally be undignified and adorable whenever children were involved. He loved them.

And sometimes when I want to feel pain I think about how tragic it is that he never got to be a grandfather.

Could you imagine? Imagine Philip (because fuck you) telling Alexander he’s gonna be a grampa.

Imagine every adorable YouTube video of someone finding out they’re gonna be a grandparent and then pretend it’s Hamilton.

Hamilton did it! He came here with nothing and no one, and he clawed his way through, and despite every mistake he made along the way, he’s gonna be a grandfather.

And (because like I said fuck you) Eliza wouldn’t have had to hold that happiness all by herself, without her husband to share in it. (She’d have had this thought about Alexander as a grandfather. She remembers how every new child was as exciting for Hamilton as the first. How lonely he was for so long, and now he had a family all his own and even when he was distant and distracted there was nothing in the world that brought him more joy than watching it grow.)

This is what my YouTube channel looks like with YouTube’s new restricted mode, which has unfairly targeted some LGBTQ content for being “sensitive material.”

21 of my 43 videos disappear. 

In case you missed it: YouTube says it “wrongly” filtered out a ton of LGBTQ-related videos in a recent update to its Restricted Mode feature. This has affected virtually every queer YouTube creator from @tyleroakley to @everyoneisgay to little ole’ me. So, if you watch my YouTube videos in Restricted Mode, the videos above with an X through them aren’t available. 

Oh, and YouTube’s statement about the whole thing just sucks:

“We are so proud to represent LGBTQ+ voices on our platform – they’re a key part of what YouTube is all about. The intention of Restricted Mode is to filter out mature content for the tiny subset of users who want a more limited experience. LGBTQ+ videos are available in Restricted Mode, but videos that discuss more sensitive issues may not be. We regret any confusion this has caused and are looking into your concerns. We appreciate your feedback and passion for making YouTube such an inclusive, diverse, and vibrant community.”

So under that logic, the “more sensitive issues” that aren’t suitable for a “tiny subset of users” (like, say, a teenager with unsupportive parents who’s trying to get online from a school library where PORN IS ALREADY BLOCKED) include:

  • A discussion with my 90-year-old grandmother about how she eventually accepted having a gay grandkid
  • A conversation with my mom about This Is a Book for Parents of Gay Kids and why I didn’t have a proper coming-out
  • A crowd-sourced glossary of the differences between bisexuality and pansexuality 
  • A silly video with my fiancée where we write down things we love about each other
  • A collaboration focusing on the experiences of queer people of faith

And a lot more. I’m livid. Queer YouTube means so much to so many people. For millions of LGBTQ people (especially youth) whose rights are under attack, YouTube creators and viewers have built a community of resources that you just cannot find elsewhere. This is a mean and senseless kick when we’re already down. And we’re not going to shut up about it.

  • me: man i really need to start getting to bed earlier
  • my brain at 1 a.m.: are we gonna have a problem? you got a bone to pick? we've come so far why now are you pulling on my dick? i'd normally slap ur face off and everyone here could watch but im feeling nice so here's some advice- listen up biotch

Everytime theres a callout post about JonTron, and how he’s racist or whatever theres always comments like “Meh im still gonna keep watching his content” and i just kinda whisper what content, he posts at the same frequency Donald Trump has a point, which is to say fucking never

You know jack the thing i like the most about you? You're not doing a fake facade or somthing like that You really care about your fans and dont mind physical contact and let peopole talk to you. There arent alot of youtubers who are actually nice

This means a lot to me, thank you! I try my best to be nice to people and not make it seem like I’m some untouchable entity. It’s much more fun to be real with people and treat everyone equally :)

Not every youtuber needs to be that way of course, some DO like distance but I am tired of all the fakers saying “I really care” when it’s clear they don’t
