It really breaks my heart to see more of these sexual assault cases unfolding from the Youtube community. I’ve been following it quite closely and all I can really say is that I’m disappointed once again, mostly sad if that means anything. It seems like a lot of people have suffered at the expense of well-known Youtubers - and I am sure there are those out there who haven’t stepped forward and are suffering in silence because of it. And that last statement just doesn’t apply to the playgrounds of Youtube - but all across the world.
I wish I knew what to say when it came to these kind of things, but there are no words in which I feel like they be at all comforting. It’s just a slap to the face and I wish I could say that the sting would dull with time, but it hasn’t. Maybe it’s a good thing that it hasn’t because it just means that this is a big problem and it has to be stopped, or at least more talked about.
I am proud of the people who have stepped forward about these allegations. But I am also proud of the people who are fighting silently, one day at a time, who are working up the courage to tell someone one day.
