By now you may have seen hashtags like #YouTubeIsOverParty trending on social media. That would be because LGBT YouTubers are flying into dramatic fits of rage. So, regular Monday. But this time the reason behind their outrage will interest you. Apparently some of their videos are being categorized as inappropriate and marked as “restricted.” All courtesy of YouTube…
Several LGBT YouTubers say the platform is censoring their videos with a filtering mechanism that flags and hides content as inappropriate.
YouTube’s “restricted mode” lets users filter out “potentially objectionable content,” the platform says, but some vloggers said it’s actually hiding pro-LGBT material.

I thought YouTube was better than this… Their new "restricted mode" not showing the LGBTQ is just going to piss creators and fans off.

"It's just restricted mode"
If lgbt+ is filtered out, straight couples should be too. #YoutubeIsOverParty

In related news…
Yep, being restricted is soooo 2016. Our videos have been snuffed by YouTube via this exact mode for a while now. So LGBT is just now catching up to old news. Nerds. But seriously, this is not a new thing. The left is simply upset because now it’s beginning to affect their “MY GAY COMING OUT STORY!” videos.
The best part of all this? The only ones to blame here are leftist themselves – who fought for this load of suck. Notice all their prior complaints about how any opinion they don’t like is offensive. Aaand should be removed from the Internet. No, really. Liberals demand society silence those with differing opinions because “hate speech” (see CENSORSHIP: Facebook, Twitter, YouTube Agree to Ban ‘Hate Speech’ in Europe). That’s why YouTube sets up a system where potentially offensive videos can be restricted in the first place. Now it’s backfiring majorly. Oopsie.
And herein lies the fundamental difference between conservatives and liberals. Conservatives oppose squashing of freedoms. Liberals oppose the squashing of freedoms only when their cause is affected. Expect to see plenty of LGBT leftists suddenly caring about “free speech.” But only for themselves, no one else.
Gay privilege. It’s a thing.
