This morning I was enjoying the new Youtube channel Polaris - which I recommend to you all - when I did something that I never do, I read the comments. I was amazed at the sexist, immature, and awful comments that were directed at the host of the Daily Byte, Dodger. Now I first got to know Dodger through her show Swords and Stitches which is fucking fan-damned-tastic. So I was pleased for her when it looked like she was getting a show with a budget, which means that she'll get paid to do things like this:
But after I foolishly read the comments I found myself wishing that the poor thing hadn't exposed herself to the mass of assholes that exist on Youtube. Fuck, she's a grown assed woman and she can do what she wants with her life; I just hate when piss heads take pot shots at people who are actually doing something with their lives.
Whether you are writing a blog, posting videos to youtube, or sharing your artwork with the world the fact that you put yourself out there creatively is doing something with your life beyond living a nine-to-five life of work and bed. That's a step in the right direction. A step toward a more creative world and when these little fucking children (because it is almost certain that commenters begging her to make a porn video are under the age of 18 and have never touched a woman) malign and attack someone who is making an active commitment to the world it just pisses me off.
I'm off my soapbox for now.
