Bi Visibility Day

Was yesterday, technically, and now I have to share with you an end product of missing Lost Girl (and bi main character Bo Dennis) and subsequently going down another YouTube fan vid rabbit-hole.

It's Not Just the Algorithm

It's the fact that the dominant culture in the US is a misogynist white supremacist one, that explains why it's so easy for young men to get themselves "radicalized" by misogynist white supremacist videos "they stumble across" on YouTube.

As I tweeted yesterday:
[Text: I don't buy the notion that young men "innocently stumble" upon Nazi vids on YouTube "because of the algorithm." Like, maybe a lot of men are a little bit Nazi to begin with [to which I'll add, precisely because our culture primes them to be receptive to videos YouTube suggests for them].

When I go down a YouTube rabbithole, I end up watching "Anna Kendrick's gayest moments" or whatever."]

And, for what it's worth, the lesbian algorithm inside my brain also recommends said Anna Kendrick vid, which YouTube recommended to me after I had been searching for femslash fan videos set to the tune of the Gentleman Jack theme song. (I couldn't find any. I'm a dork).
