YouTubers speaking out against sexual abuse
Recently, former YouTube content creators Sam Pepper (sampepper) and Jason Viohni Sampson (veeoneeye) were outed as repeated sexual abusers who used the power of the “fame” that YouTube has given them to manipulate, harass, assault, abuse and rape. Sam Pepper has refused to acknowledge the allegations of assault and rape against him, whereas Jason made an unlisted video admitting to his crime. Jason was still being manipulative in the video as he was trying to excuse his horrendous actions, as well as gain sympathy from those who saw the video. As BriBry, a former friend of Jason, pointed out, Jason made the video unlisted to further the spread of information his actions.
We cannot let this happen.
Keep talking about sexual abuse. Keep spreading this information. Do not let this topic die because we need to spread awareness. Most of all, continue to support any and all victims of sexual abuse.

…you’re lucky I’m a stubborn asshole because these took way longer to make than I’d like to admit.
holy fucking shit
Bill Nye is my favorite
Dawkins needs to get over himself
Bam. Dawkins is a jerk.
Dawkins looks like he is being physically repelled by Bill Nye’s presence. Like Bill has this aura that pushes back assholes or something.

TOS: Journey to Babel
One of the busiest episodes of TOS—there’s so much going on, it could almost be a two-parter. As bironic said, the political intrigue gets completely overshadowed by the Spock family drama. It’s easy to forget that Sarek and Amanda appeared only once in TOS (not counting the movies, TAS, TNG, or the time Mark Lenard was a Romulan), because they’re such a huge part of Star Trek lore. And there is so, SO much Star Trek lore in this episode:
- This is the episode to introduce Andorians (who bironic and I both agree are sexy) and Tellarites, not to mention little gold people eating technicolor marshmallows who clearly know how to party:
- We learn SO much about Vulcan(s). “We come to serve”/“Your service honors us” originates from this episode, as does the finger touching, which Mark Lenard and Jane Wyatt came up with after a chat with Nimoy about Vulcan hand gestures. We hear more about Vulcan anatomy and Vulcan aging, and what a Vulcan child’s education is like. We learn about sehlats and tal-shaya.
- And we learn a million things about our own personal Vulcan, like that he and his father have been estranged for 18 years, and it’s been four years since he even saw his parents, who, by the way, are total badasses. I mean, Sarek, oh my god: “Threats are illogical. And payment is usually expensive.” Even Spock is like “Yeah, my dad could kill a dude, no problem,” and at 102.437 “precisely, Doctor,” he repels that piggy Tellarite’s attack like he’s brushing crumbs off his jacket. And Amanda:When you were five years old and came home stiff-lipped, anguished, because the other boys tormented you saying that you weren’t really Vulcan. I watched you, knowing that inside that the human part of you was crying, and I cried, too. There must be some part of me in you, some part that I still can reach. If being Vulcan is more important to you, then you’ll stand there speaking rules and regulations from Starfleet and Vulcan philosophy, and let your father die. And I’ll hate you for the rest of my life.
- There are places in this episode where Sarek and Amanda’s marriage seems very paternalistic. Even Kirk calls Amanda out on it: “My husband did request it.” “It sounded more like a command.” This isn’t the first time that vaguely patriarchal weirdness has reared its head in Vulcan culture (see also “Vulcan marriage,” “Vulcan divorce”). That said, I read a comment to the effect that Sarek’s “controlling” behavior towards Amanda could be easily explained by the stress of the situation: he’s acting that way because of Spock. When they’re alone together, their conversation is much more equitable. And that explanation suits me.
In conclusion: FLYING BUTT ATTACK!!

//Apparently even Spock’s parents just assumed Spirk.
It’s truly terrifying that men can’t empathize with an abused woman unless they imagine her as a woman they know and love.
If you have to imagine that Ray Rice had hit your own mother/sister/wife/daughter in order to be upset about it, you have some serious thinking to do.
Things you apparently don’t consider terrible:
Posting a video of a mother talking about how she wanted to kill her child while that same child was in the room listening.
Supporting the eugenic abortion of autistic people.
Failing to condemn the murders of autistic children.
Supporting the Judge Rotenburg Center, which according the the UN, tortures autistic people.
It is terrible, only 3% of their budget goes towards services, there are no autistic people on their board, they literally support eugenics. They are doing absolutely nothing good.
This is widely know withing the autistic community and they are pretty universally hated by autistic people. Because they are terrible. They only even bother pretending to care about little white boys.
Read that link. Read it.
And here is the resignation letter of the sole autistic person they had in an important (but still non board) position
Here’s a flyer by a major autism advocacy organisation on them
OR, if you still don’t give a fuck about what autistic people think or want, (which seems kind of obvious from the content of this ask) here are some links written by non autistic people.
Here’s a post from the CEO of one of the oldest charities in the US for intellectually and developmentally disabled people.
Here’s a post from a major autism parenting magazine
And here are some other posts
If you continue to support them now you are in possession of this information, then it is clear that you are not an ally to autistic people, you don’t want to help us, and are probably just doing your charity work for “oh look at me, I’m a good person” points.
If you support autism speaks, you are not supporting autistic people, you are hurting us. And you are doing it knowingly and consciously.
Please spread this, not enough people know.
