Top 10 Ignorant and Hateful Things Your Dad Probably Believes About YouTube

Ironically, my dad is actually a fairly smart (albeit still rather irritatingly stubborn and muscle-headed) guy when not talking about this particular subject; oh dear GOD, where did this particular subject touch him as a child

The Top Ten

1 The fact that nearly all of its most famous celebrities are all privileged white males also makes all of them automatically racist and "alt-right"

RalphTheMovieMaker IS very much a satire OF how incredibly stupid this stereotype is, but still - xandermartin98

But my dad is a conservative - 445956

2 Its iconic celebrities are always in it exclusively for the money and nothing else

Ha my dad believes this about everyone - TwilightKitsune

Try saying that to my face after seeing:

1) How much absurdist creativity (like it or not) Filthy Frank and iDubbbz put into their work
2) How much EXTREMELY genuine heart, passion, editing care and general class went into Ralph's and IHE's, among so many other hidden gems that I can't even begin to list them all
3) How much nearly all of the best ones genuinely love and support their fanbases to death - xandermartin98

3 Any Youtuber that isn't in one of the specific genres they like is automatically an idiot

(hateful muttering, my dad after hearing IHE talk for what he described as literally FOUR SECONDS, wishing for him to get buried in the very same ridiculously All-American trailer-trash compost he came from with his absurdly stereotypical fat idiot redneck mother in tow) - xandermartin98

Sounds like you are body-shaming, please stop.

4 All of the ranters act exactly like Onision


5 Overrated Youtuber automatically equates to bad Youtuber (unless it's Pewdiepie, because he's never actually tried to tolerate watching Pewds' content for more than ten minutes at a time)

(cough, always going on about their pretentious and predictable schticks, wheeze) - xandermartin98

6 The "shock-value" Youtubers like Filthy Frank and iDubbbz all act exactly like their Internet caricatures in real life

Instantly proven COMPLETELY false in Frank's case if you ever take the time to listen to even ONE fracking second of the podcast interviews with his real-life self

iDubbbz I'm not quite so sure about, but only time will tell - xandermartin98

7 Every Youtuber that ends up having drama surrounding him always brings it completely on himself (and also acts exactly like Keemstar)

(cough, Derek Savage on the subject of IHE, cough) - xandermartin98

8 Every Youtuber that reviews content from other people is automatically the stereotypical clickbait reaction channel that so many people hate the website for

In other words, Jinx, Rashad and the like, who all just record themselves watching other videos - xandermartin98

9 "All they ever do is make fun of each other"

True for only a very VERY small minority of the ranters in the grand scheme of things - xandermartin98

10 All of the gaming channels act exactly like Pewdiepie

Vinesauce Joel, yes, but not so much Vinesauce Vinny, don't you think - xandermartin98

The Contenders

11 That Youtube videos are called "Youtubes"

My mom also believes in this

12 Every video that you watch on YouTube is either "bad" or "trash"

My dad disrespects my YouTube interests.

13 Any video which has a little kid in it is a possible target for child molesters
14 All YouTube videos can give your computer a virus
