UPDATE 1/28/17: Success.
A massive thank you to everyone who supported my campaign, together we made what will hopefully be a lasting difference on the Onision channels. Please see the video "Banning Me From Youtube?" where Onision addresses this petition and responds willingly to our cause.
UPDATE 1/22/17: Damage control.
The title of Onision's video above was just changed. The original title involved the word "homewrecker", in direct reference to his ex- girfriend. In a recent video, "I Can't Do This Anymore", you will see Onision sobbing through claims of remorse. He asserts that the video above was a mistake, despite its monetization of which he has no intent to remove.
Onision, now age 31, has repeatedly exploited minors and adults since the early years of his YouTube career.
His most recent controversy involves Billie Dawn Webb, a 19 year old who was once a factor of his relationship with his wife, Laineybot. Not only has Onision publicly disclosed private information regarding the 3-way relationship to his audience of over 1 million subscribers, but he has also argued that certain abusive tendencies are just.
In this particular video, Onision explains the reasoning behind his request that Billie either get a suggestive "tramp stamp" or allow herself to be chained to his basement wall for three days as a means of making up for her habit of smoking marijuana of which he does not approve. Onision insists that Billie is obligated to sacrifice herself to prove she is worth staying in the relationship with him and his wife, and if she was not to comply, she would be removed from the relationship. He uses both a mistakened premise of BDSM culture and the word "boring" to describe those who disagree with these expectations, in a way that attempts to undermine the extremity of the situation.
Moreover, Onision details why he wished to keep Billie from seeing her family, who he has claimed are a family of illegal drug users, against Billie's wishes for him to reveal this private information. This demand is clearly a limitation to the young woman's rights. It is downright restrictive behavior with the intent to isolate the individual. Abusers will commonly manipulate their victims to become dependent on only them. To our knowledge, Billie has not been held against her will from contacting her loved ones, this being one of the reasons why she has been removed from Onision and Laineybot's relationship. However, Onision gives the impression that this demand is justified given the reasoning that again, Billie is to sacrifice her rights to prove her value.
A good portion of Onision's fanbase is comprised of minors as well as young adults, much like most popular YouTube channels. He has not been proven guilty of any crime as of yet, though it is crucial to recognize that his young audience may excuse his manipulative behaviors as acceptable should they make way in their own lives. These are vulnerable youth. It is wrong to expose them to the falsehood that Onision's expectations are healthy when majority of them are intrusive.
This is only one facet of Onision's wrong doings. Not only has he inserted images of minors in some his videos, but he also frequently degrades the female body via images sent to his forum, and shames other YouTube personalities among other things. Please feel free to continue exploring the OnisionSpeaks and Onision channels for yourself, where you are sure to find much more than just offensive content. It is unfair that this man is given the opportunity to capitalize on the vulnerability of his loved ones, fans, etc. Help us make YouTube a safer environment for the youth by preventing characters like Onision from achieving immoral monetary gain.
A special thank you to Ayalla Karina, Elvis the Alien, Mr. Repzion, Andy Warski, Jaclyn Glenn, Social Repose, Blaire White, Vincent Cyr, and smaller YouTube channels for speaking out on behalf of what is right.
