im a bad person who thinks bad thoughts like ‘ew what is that girl wearing’ and then remember that im supposed to be positive about all things and then think ‘no she can wear what she wants, fuck what other people say damn girl u look fabulous’ and im just a teeny bit hypocritical tbh

I was always taught by my mother, That the first thought that goes through your mind is what you have been conditioned to think. What you think next defines who you are.

This is honestly the best poster I have found in a while supporting breast cancer awareness. I am honestly so sick of seeing, “set the tatas free” and “save the boobies”. There is no reason in hell a life threatening, life ruining disease should be sexualized. “Don’t wear a bra day,” go fuck yourselves. You’re not saving a pair of tits, you’re saving the entire package: mind, body, and soul included. Women are not just a pair of breasts.

"If more girls wanted to be scientists, there would be more female scientists"

*takes a deep breath* WE LIVE IN A SOCIETY THAT ACTIVELY DISCOURAGES FEMALE INTELLIGENCE BY PAINTING IT AS A NON FEMININE TRAIT AND SETS UP MALES TO BE IN POSITIONS OF ACADEMIC SUPERIORITY DESPITE THERE BEING NO CORRELATION BETWEEN GENDER AND ACADEMIC ABILITY thank you for your time

I think it’s very important members of the YouTube community {mainly viewers} watch this video, regardless of whether or not they are a fan of Jack + Finn Harries {JacksGap}. 

The video is a poem which Jack wrote in regards to the recent events within the YouTube community regarding Sam and Jason {and also Alex Day}. Personally, as someone who is both rather good friends with people in the community and is still somewhat of an active viewer, I do have a lot of questions and one which appears to keep on cropping up is this; where do we go from here?

Of course, Jack cannot give us a definitive answer, nobody can. I like to think of this video as some sort of peace of mind for us. YouTube was based off of the foundation of a viewer-creator relationship. This platform only works if the people viewing the content continue to do so; if you cut out the consumer there is nothing there for the creator, and then the whole operation ceases to exist. Here, in this video, Jack gives us an idea. He reassures us that not everybody is like them, that not all of our favourite creators are such monsters. 

"There are some individuals who simply don’t belong here,
You see for some a level of influence seem to lead to an inexcusable ignorance,
You see there are certain characters who have recently made the news, those who use their power to abuse.
But believe me when I say, their names will soon fade away.”
I feel like this one section {1:27-1:45} is something many have been desperate to hear. These people will not be around forever, in a few years time you will not remember Alex Day’s face and Jason’s name will be forgotten; they will simply become nightmares of old times passed and nothing more than bad memories from what some humans are capable of. 

This is inexcusable, and while we will forget them {at least their YouTube career}, their crimes will not be and neither will their victims. 

TL;DR: My hat goes off to Jack Harries, a young man who answered a lot of questions for a community that is still somewhat confused and incredibly lost, and did so in such a manner that was both beautiful and poetic.
