NEW RULES MIGHT SHUT DOWN FEMALE CREATORS/ Arts & Crafts Channels

NEW RULES MIGHT SHUT DOWN FEMALE CREATORS/ Arts & Crafts Channels


so there certainly is a risk of arbitrary enforcement and potential discrimination and in talking with you Jackie I can really see why those who are doing crafting videos are particularly concerned about this kind of enforcement without you we cannot win this this is by far the most important video I will be putting on this channel because if we don’t take action by December in January 2020 many crafting and art channels will be gone for those of you who don’t know YouTube was recently fined 120 million dollars by the FTC for serving up personalized ads to pretty much who they thought were adults but kids were using the adults app in order to navigate the platform even though this is a law that’s going to be passed in the US it is going to be implemented on YouTube as a whole so whether you are a creator internationally or in the US you will be 100% affected by these rules so what are these rules pretty much anything that seems that child appealing will be deemed as a child directed look at these I’m gonna be using a lot of air quotes so this makes it really scary for those of us who are gaming or crafting or doing arts because kids have diverse hobbies anything that is child content will be monetized in a completely different way in other words more demonetised than monetized and Philip DeFranco describes it in the best way possible right so essentially imagine you go into work and your boss says hey by the way in January we’re gonna pay a 60 to 90 percent less not only will our videos be demonetized but the comment section removed which means we cannot communicate I love communicating with you grains I love joking and interacting but these will be disabled if the Machine believes that my content is kids appealing on Twitter Bluebird describes this perfectly if YouTube thinks your content is aimed at kids for example if you use dolls kids toys etc they’ll cut off personalized ads and you won’t be able to comment on videos and you’ll have minimum engagement with the creators and the creators won’t be earning anything basically what worries me the most is that the category of child appealing is so broad it includes things like the type of music used in your videos a lot of us use pretty uppity type music the types of colors that are on your screen that is really worrisome they also said slime type things last I checked the king of random did so many different slime type experiments are these for children no are they educational yes are they family-friendly yes and that’s where the line of family-friendly and child appealing becomes really blurry and so thousands of other topics are going to be heavily impacted namely the Arts and Crafts community as well you are not immune so things like dolls and squishies and craft kits will be child appealing and so it’s really scary to know that even though as creators we can say that whether or not we are targeting kids the rules are still very vague to say that if it’s child appealing it might automatically be child directed see the problem here if I’m not targeting kids but if it’s appealing to kids the machine might actually put me as child content less monetization no comments so the issue here is instead of looking at what we’re doing with the item it’s probably going to be looking at the item objectively hey here’s a doll that dolightful is transforming into a work of art which is a blank canvas now that’s a doll that’s for children do you monetize hey look here’s a squishy that Mariah Elizabeth is turning into an upcycled the new work of art nah it’s a squishy that’s for children hey here’s nerdecrafter reviewing a craft kit to make sure that those with the buying power can make informed decisions nah bro that’s a toy that’s kids are you using colored pencils by Crayola to make a review or trying to make an epic piece of art that is also deemed child appealing potentially what if you’re drawing an anime character or some kind of Disney character in your work of art or sculpting a Disney or anime character well guess what characters are deemed as child appealing all these things in the back I’m a dork it doesn’t take that into consideration it’s just going to see characters and automatically classify them as toys or child appealing and so as it is the rules right now are going to harm so many of us on YouTube and when I talk to someone at YouTube and told them that what I’m doing is helping adults make informed decisions they said that it’s the topic of craft kits that I should be staying away from so even YouTube is worried about this what means I should be extra worried about this and trust me grains today I really wanted to make a very different video I wanted to craft or review something but if I didn’t put this out there I would be a hypocrite and not trying to help and not try to help I really want this community to stay alive I still want to make videos I still want to interact with your grains and I want all of us here in the arts and crafts community also to get together and make sure that we don’t lose what we’ve worked so many years on making a bigger community we can’t let this rule pass as it is and the good news is we can take action if we work together by the way for this next part I’m going to be saying the word male and female quite a bit in no way is this discriminatory towards gender identity please understand I’m just using these terms as in the traditional sense and if you think about it in the arts and crafts community the topics that are deemed child appealing are mostly female type content and so the FTC is putting female type content as childish so if we’re into painting and squishies and dolls that were transforming them into works of art they are potentially going to be flagged as child content child appealing which makes absolutely no sense because many of the creators in the arts and crafts community do we use things like power tools and machines how is that fair for female type hobbies to be classified as childish these are topics that also take a lot of work and practice to perfect it’s almost like they’re saying save the women and children and yet now the boat is sinking but they’re letting us all sink together female topics are not childish topics let me be clear the collateral damage of this new FTC rule is going to hurt female creators because of our female type hobbies again I am NOT saying that there are male creators who don’t do this I’m just saying that it’s that category in itself is hurting a lot of us female creators just think about it think of your favorite creators who are doing arts and crafts and so even though when I talk to someone at YouTube again they did say that we can appeal the decision by the machine that decision is not reversible now probably some of you are like but Jackie what’s the point of appealing if you can’t reverse it my guess is that YouTube wants to protect us because if the FTC thinks that our content is child appealing and we didn’t do the right decision we can be fined up to 42,000 dollars per video you heard that right if we said we are not targeting kids and the Machine doesn’t catch us but then the FTC watches our video we can define 42,000 dollars per video that they think is child directed because they can be like ha you’re using a squishy which means that is for kids now as a creator I love again I’m gonna say this I love YouTube I want to protect it in every way possible but if you like YouTube has its hands tied because it wants to follow the law however the law can be changed if we work together and that’s why I need you so much right now so what can we do there are links in description box below in order to comment to the FTC don’t click yet don’t click listen to me listen the FTC actually wants to hear from both creators and viewers on YouTube they are actually really open to hearing our arguments which means that if we can make smart well argumented pieces of comments the chances of overturning the rule as it is, is pretty high but we need at thousands of comments there’s also a petition in description box below if you’re not sure what you can discuss and what points you can discuss there’s also a link for a document in description box below about different talking points please make sure that you are polite and make sure that your sentences are clear and coherent and all of these links were given to us by Jeremy Johnston who is currently a non practicing attorney who’s been at the forefront trying to change these rules and meeting with the FTC so please please please be as polite as possible because the FTC wants to learn they don’t know much about YouTube but they really want to learn about it and this is where we come in as a community to educate them what does YouTube need to us and how is it that girly topics are not childish topics so we really need you so let’s send them a thousands of comments so they know that personalized ads are not a bad thing either I personally would rather get an ad for the new sculpting tool than a horror movie or if a parent gives permission to a kid to use their account that is consent to get personalized ads because the other thing is if you are watching crafting videos regardless of your age if YouTube deems that that is child appealing you not count as an adult anymore watching these videos it will count you as a child so we have to make sure that these kinds of topics are not put indirectly into child appealing or child directed simply because we’re using dolls or craft kits or art supplies for those of you are still naysayers and really want to have more information on this I had an interview with Jeremy asking him some of the questions that are really important to the arts and crafts community as well as some of the vagueness of the FTC the rules are so vague that’s what makes it scary and according to Jeremy also unconstitutional because even though I am NOT personally targeting kids what is child appealing if I am NOT targeting kids and what is the line between family-friendly and child appealing so please please please today send that comment sign that petition and so enough jibba jabba on my side because I am so I’m so invested in this in all seriousness though I really don’t want to lose you grains and I don’t want to lose what we’ve built here together and so I want to introduce you to Jeremy Johnston he’s also creator here on YouTube and he has a family vlog channel this is an interview we’ve had together so bear with me here hey Jeremy please briefly tell my subscribers about yourself and your channel hey Jackie thanks so much for letting me be a part of this video so I’m Jeremy Johnston I have five little kids and five years ago one of them came up and wanted to watch some videos on YouTube and I started searching and I came across family vlogs which looked like just home videos to me and I was amazed that millions of people were watching as I dug deeper into and kind of saw the genre and what it was all about we decided it was something we wanted to do and so we feel really blessed today we now have two billion views on YouTube two million subscribers as I’ve learned about what’s going on with the FTC I’ve wanted to speak out and let people know what’s happening and what we can do to try to make a difference at the time that we started YouTube I was a civil litigator a practicing attorney since we’ve gone full time to YouTube I’m no longer actively practicing and I’m not intending any of this to be specific legal advice for you and you’re sharing some of my opinions as I’ve reviewed these things so we all know that the FTC is worried mainly at child directed content but that term is really vague as someone who does arts and crafts for an adult type of content does learn I’m trying to talk here so even though I’m doing a crafting and art channel for mainly adult type viewers I was pretty alarmed at the article that was released by because it said that there were thousands of topics that would be affected by this so even though they briefly mentioned that slime stuff’s technically slime as a topic is a scientific topic it is a chemical reaction but there are also hundreds of channels that don’t necessarily just play with slime but they also focus on different reactions with different ingredients and I use the example of king of random in no way is king of random targeting children but of course kids have so many hobbies that they really enjoy that will they watch it yeah they could I’m rambling I’m sorry so now my concern really has to do with the Arts and Crafts community so we use materials like squishies dolls colorful pencils craft kits and so on as it is with the vagueness of the definition do you think that arts and crafts fall under the risk of being put under child directed or child appealing categories one of the big problems with the government regulating content is no one really knows where they’re going to draw the lines they haven’t defined clearly what child directed means but they have given us ten factors we can look to, to see whether or not our content is child directed the problem that was even within those ten factors it’s unclear how we should measure those factors or define them for example one of the specific factors is whether or not you are featuring celebrities that children like to watch that raises all kinds of questions you know like for me with our channel we know that we have a lot of viewers we don’t know exactly how many of them are kids does that mean that we are celebrities that children like to watch and if so is it based on how many subscribers you have or how many views or what percentage it is and if it is based on those things where do you draw the line of when you are a celebrity or not that’s just one example of the 10 another question is what’s the subject matter and so what subject matter is child directed or not you know within crafting if you’re talking about colorful pencils or slime or different things that children may be attracted to does that count as subject matter that is child director or not no one really knows so there certainly is a risk of arbitrary enforcement and potential discrimination and in talking with you Jackie I can really see why those who are doing crafting videos are particularly concerned about this kind of enforcement a lot of the crafting videos include things that are attractive to children but will that be considered a child directed no one knows and that’s a big problem because when we’re facing the kind of penalties that could come about with this regulation you want to know whether or not you’re breaking the law or not another category worries me is the idea of characters would creating fan art of a cartoon or animated character also be put under the child directed or child content it’s a really good question because any type of content for a general audience is going to do some things that are maybe more specific or attractive to children so for example with Aladdin coming up recently if you were doing a craft that was around Aladdin the FTC could come and say look this is child directed because you’re doing something about Aladdin okay Jeremy this this part here is what bugs me the most and this is the part that I feel very strongly about because I know that even though it is not directly targeted at female creators it is collateral many of us here in the community do use colorful things art supplies craft supplies that could be a child appealing even though we are not necessarily child-directed so I feel like many traditional female type content and hobbies are put into the childish categories and this scares me because many people use arts and crafts as a way to deal with their own anxiety and just have a hobby there’s nothing wrong than having a hobby arts and crafts is not just for children so as a female creator in an already male-dominated platform it really feels like if these rules pass we as female creators would have a harder time climbing the ladder and making content that we enjoy naturally again I am using the terms as male and female in the traditional sense please great understand just I’m doing these trust me I grew up playing with action figures alright okay here’s my question so as it is the FTC’s of big rules will mainly affect female creators in the craft see and artsy space is that a stretch for me to assume given of course the vagueness of the actual definition of child directed or child appealing I think that there’s certainly a risk and a concern about discrimination and this being unfairly regulated against women I think it’s especially scary if the FTC does decide to expand the regulation of Copa to include not just child directed content but child attractive content I think it’s fair to say that children may be more drawn to or attracted to stuff like crafting or other things that female creators are primarily talking about we’re making on YouTube and this is a big deal this is part of why we want to talk to the FTC about this and let our voices be heard that there’s big concerns about them trying to regulate content especially when they’re using a law that’s all about privacy Copa is about putting power in control in protecting their children’s personal information online but instead the FTC is using it to remove parents from the process and ignore parents choice we know from the statistics that 81% of parents let their children 13 and under watch YouTube if parents are consenting to that it isn’t something where we should come in and punish creators and when we start regulating that content the government is on dangerous ground are starting to have discriminatory regulation my next question is for channels who are not directed at children but who would be flagged as child appealing and potentially child directed if we lose our comment section and even our monetization what would happen to the platform I’ve been primarily talking about the FTC and the concerns around government regulation but there are a lot of unknowns and a lot of questions about how YouTube is gonna come in and police this situation as well I think it’s unclear right now how YouTube would look at a review of a arts and crafts kit one good thing about the way the regulation is set up is that it will be video specific so say that that video was flagged as being more for children or a concern about that you could potentially lose comments or personalized ads on that video but that doesn’t mean that the whole channel is gonna be shut down or impacted because of that and the good news is Jeremy is that the FTC wants to learn about it so there are different steps that we can take here and you really did put quite a few resources together grains by the way these are going to be in description box below but Jeremy really did put things together and one last question YouTube says it’ll treat any view from a child appealing content as coming from a child regardless of your age whether you’re twenty five forty five sixty five if they deem a topic or children even if you’re an adult and you enjoy crafts and arts you will be categorized on YouTube as a child viewer so the question for you is how will this impact our content does this mean that the person view doesn’t count for us as creators yeah it’s very difficult how little control we have and it’s ironic because what the FTC has said is they’re changing their enforcement to now consider creators as operators as though we’re running our own website the problem though is that we don’t have any controls over the operation so for example on our channel we make documentary content that we never intended to be directed at children we wanted it for a general audience but we don’t have controls over what YouTube does with that and how they suggested so they started placing our stuff on YouTube kids and people are watching it there but I have no control over what’s on YouTube kids or who they’re suggesting those videos too so it is frustrating if this can come up to harm us or lead to us being considered child directed over things that we don’t have control over the other thing too is we know what our intent is and who our intended audiences but if they expand this regulation that becomes less of a factor because they’ll just be looking at who’s watching or enjoying the content but again we shouldn’t be looked down upon just because kids also enjoy our content I want to make family-friendly content I’m okay with the fact that children find our content clean and entertaining but it doesn’t make sense to me that we should be penalizing those creators who are making that type of content that’s the kind of result that’s gonna cause more quality good family-friendly content to shrink while more mature content grows that’s the problem people are gonna have an incentive to try to prove that they’re not child-directed this is that concern where you’re gonna have creators feeling like they need to mature fi their content maybe adding language that’s more for adults or topics that are more extreme where they can point out and say look I’m not child-directed it is really concerning that the way that this regulation is being crafted is to focus on the content because even as an adult if they’re watching our content and they want to participate in it they want to comment or they want it to be suggested they lose that opportunity if it’s deemed as child directed and so adults aren’t having the opportunity to have an experience as an adult they’re going to be treated like they’re little kids and it’s not fair to those people in our audience who want to participate and have comments and other features that would be available on normal general audience content I really appreciate you taking the time to talk about this issue I just invite people to sign our petition send a comment to the FTC us letting our voice be heard really can make a difference the FTC is sincerely trying to do what’s best they just didn’t have as much information about how this was impacting creators or those negative unintended consequences that this was going to cost us letting them know about those things on a big scale can make a difference in the decisions they’re making about changes that they should make on their enforcement and regulation of copa so thank you so much Jeremy for being at the forefront of this it really means a lot to a lot of us creators we really can’t stay quiet on this we have to send as many comments as possible you grains you viewers our subscribers you matter so much without you we cannot win this so please make sure that you send a really polite and a very well-written comment to the FTC I’ll leave the link down below all these links were put together by Jeremy because he’s been going to visit them and talk with them and they’re very open so it means that we just have to be very vocal and also sign the petition I’ll leave a comment that I wrote for them in description box below and if you want a sample of something that you could potentially send to them I’ll leave a sample down below change it tweak it to make it as personal to you and your experience as possible to make sure that they hear us out thank you so much grant I will see you on Friday with a crafty or review video I’ll see you later

  1. Please watch the video ALL the Way! The issue isn't with YouTube. YouTube is following a LAW. We need to change the LAW as it is. Please check these links after the video:

  2. And btw what if the child watch porn or something like this? Ohhh come on, im from 88' and we did it all the time and we are normal ppl that system tried to crashed like a nut. And they will buy something? How? Sorry we are poor if my child would buy something from internet it would regret it to rest of his child life XD

  3. I have just updated my channel and im scared that the Gatcha community because it is a game and is cutesy. I hope the FTC lets us keep all of our channels 🙂

  4. As an aunt very commonly babysitting my nephew, this law upsets me because the videos I watch are NOT videos my nephew would be interested. There's also tons of channels I would not be happy with my nephew watching but that would end up in his Youtube Kids feed. In the comment I posted, I mentioned how not only does this affect the creators, but also the companies running the ads. The personalized ads are that, personalized. Without personalized ads, these companies running the ads in the first place would lose money because their ads would not be going to interested parties.

  5. I work in child care …..and I can say for sure what they are targeting is not what kids are watching…….they watch Lele ponds and Lucas and Marcus take of their clothes in super markets and other crap and it makes them honestly think they can get famous and right just for stripping down in a super market and being a jerk to people …….
    I left a comment about it to the ftc! Hope we can make this right! It's a parenting issue!!

  6. Thats crazy. Im 26 and i watch salty crafters videos to help pick out kits for my daughter. I like anime as does half the world. I craft myself so no its not for kids. Kids cant us resin i mean it says on the side of the box or bottle NOT FOR CHILDREN. And what about crafting dolls i crochet. I paint. I get alot of my ideas from youtube ( i donot copy right. I never tell people i did it out of my head) i look up to these people cause im 26 with a childlike mind i like slime i like squishes. I enjoy watching videos during break at work. Im me and if they do this who am i going to be. I mean youtube crafters help bring out the best in me. #save youtube

  7. Sooooo…. I think this is all from that Jake Paul sh*t that was happening (advertising for kids etc)

    Good job mate… you broke YouTube

  8. This is going to potentially be disastrous for so many creators and artists that I watch. I wonder if a simple statement/blurb/notice at the beginning of every video stating that the following content is not aimed at children would satisfy? If not, what about a verification to say you are over a certain age?

  9. This never should have even come up… children shouldn't be able to watch regular YT content without parental permission, and it isn't a creators fault if YT advertises their channel to kids who are watching on their parents accounts.

    And if the kid lied about their age, that's a family issue! UGH.

    And what makes this so different from entire, literally ENTIRE television/cable channels DIRECTED AT CHILDREN? How many times have we heard "Get your parents permission to log on/call/order"?! Literally telling children to go get mom or dad to buy them this shiny new toy.

    Youtubers also can't control the exact ads that show up on their videos. It isn't their fault if the algorithm sticks a toy advertisement in front of their video. In fact, I'm willing to bet there's a review or two of a certain toy out there that had an advert FOR THAT TOY pop up before it, while the video itself reviews it to be trash!

    I wrote a big and polite wall of text to the FTC, Jackie… I hope they reword this!

  10. Jackie if you see this message please check your IG direct. My name is Sweettartz85 and I sent a link to a video made by JoergSprave. He's trying to form a union that will protect you creators. He's hired lawyers and is filing a class action law suit.

    I refuse to stay quiet. YouTube is taking the You out of it.

  11. I do not think they understand how much YouTube means to some people even if it can be under the "child directed" category the videos could be the only thing helping people get through things. So it is unfair how people will be punished for making the stuff they love just because it is "for children".

  12. So they don't care that by making theses rules they will find that no one will continue to use this platform as if U get dictated on what U can and can't do that contradicts the fact that we have a right of freedom of speech and we should be able to watch what we want it's not the creators fault that there are parents out there that allow there children to watch this un supervised so really seeming as there is a YouTube for kids this YouTube shouldn't be then penalized for it

  13. Can you not age restrict your own video? That could be a loop hole, unfortunately that means you might loose some veiws? But not all monitisation

  14. well the first of my videos just got flagged as made for kids. I make drawing videos, and it really sucks! Just because i like to draw kawaii cute things, I don't get comments? I am also a parent and would rather have my kids get a personalized add them some randow weird add! I always pick the video for m kids, I know what they are watching. Hopefully we can make a Change!!

  15. All channels that I’m subscribed to that will b affected in some way.
    Andymation, Bobby Duke Arts, Chloe Rose Art, Elise Ecklund, Even and Kaitlyn Gaming, Even And Kaitlyn, Good Mythical Morning, Half-Asleep Chris, llSuperwomanll, Jazza, Kasey Golden, makochino, Monster Tutorials, NerdECrafter, nigahiga, Pewdiepie, RoomieOfficial, Shmoxd, Steph Inc., SuperRaeDizzle, SuzelleDIY, The King of Random, The Roundtable, The Try Guys, Toon Ruins and ZHC 😱😱😱😱😭😭😭😭😭😭😤😤😤😤😤😠😠😠😠😡😡😡😡

  16. Here's my comment to the FTC: Hello, I am here to say: You're getting rid of a lot of content creators by doing this whole YouTube thing, yes it's wrong to collect child data, but it is ENTIRELY the PARENTS FAULT, AND RESPONSIBILITY to LOOK OVER OF WHAT THEIR KID IS WATCHING There is a SEPARATE platform for children called YouTube KIDS and if the parents haven't been made to know that then share it, but leave the MAIN PLATFORM alone and mess with YouTube kids. No, I AM NOT a content creator, but I can see the stress and depression people are going through because these parents fail at RESPONSIBILITY IN WATCHING THEIR CHILD. You're not just saving kids, you're destroying passions, love, and effort of these content creators who ACTUALLY PUT EFFORT into what THEY CREATE. It is DISCRIMINATING and DISAPPOINTING. At this point you should be shaming the PARENTS not the platform itself, you should be ashamed for not actually looking at this enough. So wake up please and see what you are doing to these poor content creators over the parents who fail at RESPONSIBILITY.

  17. Law: Oh you have a cheap yellow pencil that is going to be used for professional art? Meh, a child could do that
    DEMONITIZED

  18. I thought the reason that YouTube was doing this was because they got into trouble after people found out that older people were commenting gross things on videos with children in them, and watching videos with children in them for… “illegal reasons”?

  19. submitted my own comment to the FTC. Patreon might be a solution for crafters. Using your numbers as an example, $1 a month from 962K subscribers might be a better solution for the crafters, you'll get paid more than you probably are on youtube. I know your craft kit reviews have definitely saved me more than $12 a year, from not buying the wrong kits.

  20. I am commenting so YouTube shows this to more people.
    I sadly won't be able to sign the petition. And I can't somehow write in a polite way. So I won't be able to help much sadly.

  21. Now it feels like EVERTHING is turning into grown-up apps. im disappointed with the world i live in.i love moriah Elizabeth and you i would be SOOO mad if they took you guys off. Also in my childhood i wached LPS videos and that would ruin my childhood memories. And if the child has yt then there parents have gave them the permission to have access to the internet so the parents are taking a risk for there child to see the ads.

  22. Anime was never geared towards children. The topics have always been adult themed for the most part. Also, this takes responsibly from parents. It is a parents job to make sure what they child is watching is for them. They need to keep children off youtube and fine parents if they let their children on the platform.

  23. We are going through this together never letting you down Nerde , we love your content and WE WILL SAVE IT ! ( praying to the content gods )

  24. okay wait, so my question is that if i have my niece watch cocomelon, blippi, little angels, ryan’s toy review, and etc. on my account, will i then be classified as a child viewer?

  25. If the FTC is doing this to youtube, what stops them from doing it to other more obviously child directed companies?

    Why is it just places like youtube being affected by this? If the FTC is really worried about this, why aren't they targeting companies like Disney, or Mattel? Those are companies that mainly focus on children. What makes their content any different from creators on youtube? The fact they make billions of dollars from their things?

    If youtube and the FTC are really worried about the kids, give a parental control thing, where parents can filter out certain tags and creators. And when that restriction is active, have Youtube only show adds for toys or other child friendly things.

    The Issue with YouTube Kids was that it put through content not actually made for kids or was disturbing. But if you can filter out certain topics or people, then there's no worry on your child seeing something you don't want them to.

  26. Couldn't this go towards gaming channels as well? 'its a video game, that's for kids!'
    This frightens me. Gaming channels, art channels, etc make up so much of youtube. If we lose these things youtube will end up being a platform nobody can use.

  27. I would may have some sugestion but mostly for you tube. What if ceator dirung upload of a video would choose what category it is? Like it is done in most art websites? Like if it is for childen or about toys or for more mature viewers about art. With that most videos wouldn't pop out for children.

  28. I would write a comment there, seen as this really isn't fair. But I fear my English skills and staying on point skills aren't good enough… considering I explain every thought I have. I really hope that this regulation gets changed since I love your content really much. You are funny and educational, if you want to buy craft kits. Keep up the hard work and don't forget to take breaks from time to time. Yep I really need to stop explaining myself or just writing on instinct.

  29. My kids, my choice, end of story. I do not need or want the FTC involving themselves with my parenting choices and what I decide is or is not appropriate for my children. Commented to the FTC link and signed the petition. Good luck Jackie and godspeed!

  30. Thinking: Also not just the craft/gaming channels, but also rip many fandom based channels such as MLP, Pokemon, Steven Universe, She-Ra, etc.

  31. This is so obnoxious. I'm not trying to point fingers here… but if parents can take time out of their day to complain about what their children are watching, why can't they take 2 seconds out of their day to download YouTube Kids??? This is not all parents of course, but the ones who are extremely scared about what their children may be watching. It's there for a reason! Good grief…Parental controls?? Hello! Honestly, this has all gotten too far out of hand. In the last week, YouTube has gone crazy. I will sign this petition, and I will argue to the fullest extent!

  32. This is ridiculous. I have a family friendly channel that does crafts and I also let my kids watch a lot of the creators as well as my own channel. Then watching these channels that they love and that are stuff that is ok for them to watch shouldn’t punish the people putting them out. My kids watch video game that someone is playing are they going to flag that too? They are really taking this too far. I feel guilty for letting my kids watch channels that are family friendly cus I don’t want it to cause issues for the one who have the channels. I will be definitely signing the petition and sending them a message. We need to get them to realize that not all content is directed at kids and that is we as parents give our kids permission to watch someone we think is ok for them to watch that it is our choice and not theirs. There is no reason to punish good channels because kids watch them or we watch with our kids. Jackie I’m sorry you are dealing with this. I am a small channel trying to grow so I will be effected but I don’t have anything to loose yet since I am so small. My kids love you and we watch you together all the time and now I feel bad cus I have added to the problem of this stupidity😢

  33. I be very upset and disappointed if all the craft videos goes way to by law changing to kid content and take comments way when I want to say something or point something out or support etc.
    I love what u do Jackey even when u do few videos with your sister and few other people I forgotten Chanel name. And I not a kid Iam very angry they going make me a kid viewer when Iam yonge adult. I have sign the petition hope it win over. I not good at writing a comment to ftc sorry. If video gone I be heart broken then what I going to watch if all my craft thing give me idea going to be kid contents it won't be same like now at moment when I can comment and not different. I watch lots craft that might give me idea. I knitt and crochet and etc now I worry would all be gone or effected
