Blaze TV’s Eric Schaeffer recently reported on Wednesday’s Slightly Offens*ve that Twitch has added a new member to its “moderation team” – a transgender male who “identifies as a deer.”
Also known as FerociouslySteph, sporting ears and a “caught in the headlights” pose, Steph bragged online, “I have power, they can’t take it away from me, And honestly there are some people that should be afraid of me, and they are because I represent moderation and diversity and I’m gonna come for harmful people. If you’re a really sh**ty person – I’m gonna stand up against you. Period. And Twitch is endorsing me to do that.”
According to Reuters, Amazon’s video game live-streaming platform calls its censorship committee: “an advisory council of experienced users, online safety experts and anti-bullying advocates to help improve safety on the site.”
Made up of eight members, the advisory board focuses on areas such as the protection of marginalized groups and harassment. One of the members, FerociouslySteph, once again proves how intolerant the “vocally” tolerant can be.
Other members of the Twitch council include:
Alex Holmes, the deputy CEO at UK-based youth charity The Diana Award, Dr. Sameer Hinduja, the co-director of the Cyberbullying Research Center, sociologist T. L. Taylor of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and Emma Llansó, the director of the Center for Democracy and Technology’s Free Expression Project.
