One of the best (and worst) parts of the Internet is that it has EVERYTHING. But I wanna focus on the good, and why being able to find what you're looking for online is important.
Recently, Google updated its policy to censor LGBTIQ+ content on YouTube to anyone under the age of 18.
This discrimination takes away the opportunity for under-18s who use YouTube to feel part of a community, enjoy content they can relate to, realise they aren't alone in their experiences, and it could even save a life in some cases. As a YouTuber, I create content (amazing content, if I do say so myself). That content isn't just for lulz; I want viewers to feel like they're not alone: your stories are actually OUR stories – interesting, entertaining, challenging stories.
As a kid, I didn't have YouTube, so I couldn't easily access millions of people's stories. At times when I really could've used a familiar face telling a familiar story, that made me feel alone. This generation doesn't need to feel alone. YouTube, change your discriminatory censorship policy now!
