Amouranth took to Twitter to clap back at everybody claiming it is easier for women to be successful on Twitch. Actually, to say she clapped back is an understatement: Amouranth went full on Kanye on Twitter. Question is: Is she right?
Recently Twitch has been all over the news – and our website – with all these ladies promoting their OnlyFans accounts or doing hot tub streams:
- Indiefoxx is Taking This OnlyFans Stuff Too Far
- Hot Tub Twitch Streams: Perfectly Fine or Perfectly Shameless?
- Sex Sells: Twitch Stars That Have an OnlyFans Account
This led to WoW-streamer Asmongold stating that Twitch has double-standard in its ban policy when it comes to women. Spoiler alert: According to him, Twitch favors women:
Well, it should come as no surprise that whenever genders are being discussed, things get heated. Now, Amouranth was on her best Kanye and took to Twitter in a series of Tweets:
Unpopular opinion: trolls love to look at the top 50 female streamers or take a glance at the top of the directory and conclude "all you have to do is look pretty to succeed as a girl streamer"— Kaitlyn (@wildkait) April 14, 2021
On its face this is a Logical fallacy
It actually implies that looking attractive
Is not the only requirement but a pre request or baseline.— Kaitlyn (@wildkait) April 14, 2021
Survivorship bias aside it's probably harder for the average girl, and it says nothing about the pretty girls who cycle out and don't "make it" as streamers. But no one wants to talk about that
if "failures" become
invisible, not only do we fail to recognise that missing instances hold important information, but we may also fail to acknowledge that there is any missing information at all.— Kaitlyn (@wildkait) April 14, 2021
By that same logic you could look at the top 10 streamers on twitch and conclude "but of course, to be a top streamer ALL YOU NEED IS AN APPENDAGE BETWEEN YOUR LEGS"! https://t.co/AF5eKOdT56— Kaitlyn (@wildkait) April 14, 2021
Now, if you expect us to weigh in on this with our opinion, then you must be out of your mind. We're not trynna get canceled anytime soon.
Obviously this set of Tweets started a wave of discussion, with the usual: Some support Amouranth and some completely disagree with her. Amongst those disagreeing, the general statement was that Amouranth is "blind if she denies that her whole career is based on her sex appeal."
Well... if you're gonna bring up the genetics of being pretty, Amouranth is also gonna bring up genetics:
NBA basketball player is 6ft tall , would you say:— Kaitlyn (@wildkait) April 14, 2021
"ah yes, all you need is to be tall. See they all have tallness in common." Lebron James? Clearly a height advantage, so easy. Just be born tall and you're golden! Life on ez mode.
Or would you
As a 6'5'' man that didn't make the NBA, I'll say this: I stand with Amouranth. Or... wait... we weren't supposed to take sides, damn it...
