Pokimane sets the sexist double standard that Twitch fans have for female streamers

During a broadcast on Twitch over the weekend, popular streamer Pokimane criticized for double standards applied to female streamers.

The live streamer and entrepreneur has received intense hate attacks and numerous opinionated hate comments in 2022. In response, Pokimane condemned particularly engaging viewers. women.

“I was thinking about this, and I thought why would anyone like to hold someone’s attraction to them like that?” Pokimane said. “Let me be more specific. People will be like ‘your viewers like the way you look and they want to fuck you.’ “Pokimane addresses not only her comments but also the hateful messages her viewers and subscribers have received.

“First, rude, gross, no one asked. But second, even if people find a female streamer attractive, what’s the point? ” Pokimane asked, “What’s wrong with finding someone hot?” The 25-year-old streamer came to Hollywood to point out the double standard.

Pokimane refers to male actors, typically actors in teen-oriented television series, who have large fan bases, raised in large part because of their attractiveness. Although she says these actors have built audiences for similar reasons, Pokimane insists these actor co-stars don’t face the same hate as female streamers.

Pokimane said women face a unique issue of attractiveness on Twitch, further questioning why it is used to discredit female streamers. “That’s just what I don’t understand. No one ever says ‘you’re a bad actor because your audience thinks you’re cute.’

Pokimane went on to summarize his argument in a simple question: “Because when is hot again a bad thing?”
