It sickens me that some of the biggest media figures in and are alt-right or adjacent, making these spaces actively hostile to the groups already excluded from tech and making young people in particular easy to target with hateful rhetoric.

@xiroux Luke Smith and DistroTube, off the top of my head. Guys like Bryan Lunduke are mighty skeevy, too.

@ljwrites @xiroux thanks for confirming my suspicions. I already had a bad feeling when i saw lukes video thumbnails using all those typical right wing memes.


@laufi @xiroux yeah it's why I've been leery of watching his videos despite their being everywhere. I was not surprised in the slightest to learn that he's outright fash.
