YouTube say they're now putting a stop to this nonsense but it would seem to be the height of irresponsibility for a parent to let a kid use such a poisonous platform.

That's it. Female depression is caused by YouTube. Knew it. It was never going to be 'like-based' social media such as Instagram or Facebook.

I could go some way as to explain why people in general seem ever more angry, and ever more confrontational.

I notice it on the videos title "XXXXXX Demolishes LibTard" etc.... There's a gobsmacking amount of this content.

That said, parents should parent. That said further, much of the audience are adults.
