YouTubers and Sexual Abuse:
Week 33B- Psychological ethics 101: In light of Peppergate, aka the Sam Pepper controversy, I have done a video explaining how genuine psychological research is kept in line.
"nah we can’t have female leads or characters of colour or gay characters or else our show will bomb"
All three of Shonda’s show have some of the highest ratings on television period, yet people will still find away to argue that more white people need to be on tv
I hope you’re aware those figures are terrible? A 3.8 rating is abismal.
This is Sam Pepper. If you don’t know who he is, Sam is a successful YouTube prankster with over 2 million subscribers. He recently uploaded a video titled “Fake Hand Ass Pink Prank" where he pinched unsuspecting girls’ butts without their permission. None of this was done with the girls’ consent…meaning Sam Pepper sexually harassed and assaulted these women.
This is no longer a “simple, harmless prank” but rather a very serious matter and offence. If you haven’t seen the video yet, you can watch, dislike, and report it HERE. You can also take the pledge to help stop sexual violence at itsonus.org. Please do not let Sam get away with this kind of behavior. He crossed the line and needs to be held responsible for his disgusting actions.
…I don’t understand. Where is the prank element? Isn’t this simply a guy using his status as a moderately succcessful Youtube personality to try and get away with sexual harassment?
The cry baby is an electronic device that essentially simulates the distress call of a large (usually Alliance) ship, making a fine distraction when there is a need to make an Alliance cruiser decide between chasing your ship or rescuing what they think is a big ship full of people. It is highly illegal for any of a dozen reasons.
I consistently forget these tricks. Now I have a visual. Thanks, Internet.
I wish I’d known this in undergrad.
Sending this to my coworkers on Monday.
